Ventricular septal defects (VSDs) are among the most common congenital heart defects. These defects may be isolated, associated with other defects, or occur as an intrinsic component of some complex heart defects. There is wide variation in size and location of VSD. Echocardiography plays an important role in evaluation of anatomy, hemodynamic significance, and planning of management of VSDs. With the emerging trends in transcatheter closure of VSD, echocardiography plays a crucial role in decision-making and intra- and postprocedure evaluation. A stepwise approach of echocardiography is necessary for accurate evaluation and management of VSDs.
