A gap measuring 4.6mm in the subaortic part of IVS means there is a hole in the wall between the heart's chambers This condition is called a ventricular septal defect (VSD) VSDs can cause breathing difficulties, fatigue, and poor growth in infants. Treatment options include medication, surgery, or close monitoring Consult a cardiologist for further evaluation and management
