Gastroschisis

Common Name(s)

Gastroschisis

Gastroschisis is a congenital defect of the abdominal wall that occurs laterally to, and often to the right of, a normally closed umbilical ring. Visceral organs that herniate through the defect are not covered by a membrane. Gastroschisis is distinct from omphalocele ({164750}), which is characterized by herniation of abdominal contents through the base of the umbilical cord; in omphalocele, the visceral organs are covered by membranes (summary by {9:Mastroiacovo et al., 2007)}. Both omphalocele and gastroschisis, when they occur without other malformations, are probably multifactorial ({1:Baird and MacDonald, 1981}).
