Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The authors review data from the Congenital Malformation Registry in South East Thames regarding fetal abdominal wall defects. Over 24 months, 80 cases were observed (40 gastroschisis, 40 exomphalos). Live-born infants with gastroschisis had few associated anomalies and an excellent prognosis (83% survival rate). Exomphalos is associated with an increased rate of life-threatening anomalies and chromosomal defects. The latter cases often are terminated prenatally. If these cases are excluded, the 1-year survival rate for liveborn infants with exomphalos is favorable (close to 80%). Fetuses in whom gastroschisis and exomphalos are identified by ultrasonography but who have no associated life-threatening chromosomal anomalies should have a favorable prognosis.
