Caption

Hole-in-the-heart surgery. Close-up view of open heart surgery showing a patch being sutured before being used to repair a hole in the heart (ventricular septal defect). This is a heart abnormality that develops before birth, forming a hole in the septum (partition) between the left and right sides of the heart. With a large hole, heart failure may develop soon after birth. Surgery is usually very effective.
