Gastroschisis and omphalocele are defects of the abdominal wall that occur in utero, can be detected antenatally using fetal ultrasonography, and result in herniation of abdominal contents. In contrast to omphalocele, there is no sac covering the intestines in gastroschisis. The significant fluid balance changes and heat loss from exposed intestines in gastroschisis require emergency surgical.
Omphalocele and gastroschisis are the commonest among the anterior abdominal wall defects in neonates. These two anomalies exhibit different pathogenesis. In omphalocele, viscera herniate through umbilical ring with a membrane covering; while in gastroschisis viscera herniate through a gap, usually to the right of the umbilical cord and not covered by membrane (1). Gastroschisis usually.
Gastroschisis and Omphalocele can both be life threatening if gone unnoticed but if either is caught early they can be treated correctly and repaired with surgery. A baby born with an Omphalocele has a higher risk for complications than a baby with Gastroschisis for many reasons. Gastroschisis is usually the only birth defect the baby has, but it is possible for them to have others. With a.
The etiology of gastroschisis and omphalocele is unclear and their pathogenesis is controversial. Because previous reports have inconsistently noted the type and frequency of malformations associated with omphalocele and gastroschisis, we assessed these associated malformations ascertained between 1979 and 2003 in 334,262 consecutive births. Of the 86 patients with omphalocele, 64 (74.4%) had.
Omphalocele consists of a central abdominal wall defect that permits herniation of abdominal viscera into a sac made up of a three-layered membrane consisting of peritoneum, Wharton's jelly, and amnion that covers the viscera. Gastroschisis is a smaller abdominal wall defect to the right of a normally positioned umbilical cord, which permits herniation of the intestine, as well as occasionally.Learn More

Omphalocele differs from gastroschisis in that the protruding organs are covered by the omphalocele sac. Gastroschisis has no sac and is likely caused by a rupture of a hernia of the cord, resulting in extrusion of intestine through the small umbilical defect. In contrast to gastroschisis, a ruptured giant omphalocele has all of the organs, including liver, outside the abdomen without a.Learn More
Omphalocele and gastroschisis are recognized as congenital malformations with a high mortality. Only 60% of children with such malformations survive until the end of the first year of age. It has been suggested that omphalocele and gastroschisis are associated with other congenital malformations, concerning the bones, the heart and the kidney. The aim of the present study is to determine the.Learn More
Gastroschisis is a birth defect in which the baby's intestines extend outside of the abdomen through a hole next to the belly button. The size of the hole is variable, and other organs including the stomach and liver may also occur outside the baby's body. Complications may include feeding problems, prematurity, intestinal atresia, and intrauterine growth retardation.Learn More
Fetal omphalocele and gastroschisis are congenital defects of the abdominal wall that require prompt surgical management at the time of delivery. To evaluate the role of prenatal sonography in identifying factors that influence prognosis, 24 cases of abdominal-wall defect (16 omphalocele, eight gastroschisis) were reviewed. Sonograms were evaluated for location of umbilical cord insertion.Learn More
Omphalocele is a protrusion of internal abdominal organs from a defect of the umbilical ring. The protrusion may be very small with just a few loops of bowel protruding or may contain all of the intestines, the liver and the stomach. Unlike gastroschisis, the organs that are protruding are covered with a membranous sac. It has been suggested that omphalocele and gastroschisis may be the same.Learn More

Understanding the similarities and differences between gastroschisis and omphalocele is essential for patient management; therefore, the following sections first acknowledge the similarities and then emphasize the differences. Definitions Gastroschisis is a full-thickness defect in the abdominal wall usually just to the right of a normal insertion of the umbilical cord into the body wall.Learn More
