Gastroschisis

Description:

Gastroschisis is a type of abdominal wall defect, which occurs when a child’s abdomen does not develop fully while in the womb.

Early in all pregnancies, the intestine develops inside the umbilical cord and then usually moves inside the abdomen a few weeks later.  In gastroschisis, the abdominal wall does not form completely so the intestines develop outside and are open to the air when the child is born.

For more information, please follow the related links.
