ABSTRACT

In gastroschisis, abdominal viscera (usually the small bowel) is located in an extra-abdominal location secondary to an anterior abdominal wall defect. The defect is lateral to (and usually to the right of) midline in position and found just lateral to the umbilical cord insertion (hence, the umbilical cord is not involved as it is in omphalocele). There is no membrane covering the bowel loops in gastroschisis. With omphalocele, an intact membrane does cover the herniated abdominal contents. Associated anomalies are seen more often with omphalocele. Ultrasound is useful in the prenatal diagnosis of gastroschisis and in helping to differentiate gastroschisis from omphalocele on the basis of the above findings or lack thereof. Incidence is 1:2500 to 10000 live births There is an increased incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis in patients with repaired gastroschisis. http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/birthdefects/Gastroschisis.htm http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/birthdefects/Gastroschisis-graphic.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gastroschisis
