I am having a baby boy six months 22 days old he is having a PDA size 3mm and having shrinkage in one of his bicuspid valve in heart. Is there possibility that PDA can be filled on its own. Kindly suggest what is required to be done.

Dear , since your child is almost 7 months old, there is no chance that his pda will close spontaneously. Also, you have mentioned some defect in his bicuspid valve. If left untreated, both may have serious repurcussions. You must consult a paediatric cardiologist and proceed according to his advice. The treatment may involve surgery or a interventional cardiologist.
