Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study describes prenatal diagnostics of fetal omphalocele by ultrasonographic examination, planned childbirth by cesarean section and surgical correction of the anomaly in an older primipara who became pregnant through a spontaneous menstrual cycle after a five-year long medical examination and treatment of infertility. Pregnancy was carried out to full term. Planned cesarean section performed at 40 weeks of pregnancy gave birth to an infant with a giant omphalocele 8-9 cm in size with an abdominal wall defect approximately 5 cm in size. The same day the newborn was subjected to surgery during which the hernial sac containing intestine was repositioned inside the child's abdomen and a paraumbilical defect in the abdominal wall was sutured. The newborn spent seven days in the intensive care unit on assisted ventilation in order to maintain a constant level of intraabdominal pressure. The postoperative period was complication-free. The infant was released from the hospital after 14 days completely adapted and ready for breastfeeding. The rest of the neonatal period remained without complications.
