Gastroschisis and omphalocele. An eight-year review

Annals of Surgery
T MayerD G Johnson


Until recently confusion has existed concerning the clinical features and surgical treatment of gastroschisis and omphalocele. Since 1971 75 infants with these abdominal wall defects have been treated at our institution. Significant differences (p equal to 0.001 in all instances) were noted between the two diseases. Gastroschisis occurred twice as often as omphalocele and is increasing in frequency. Prematurity was commonly seen with gastroschisis (65%). While the overall incidence of malformations associated with gastroschisis was low (23%), the vast majority of the additional malformations were jejunoileal or colonic atresias. The mortality rate was 12.7% among gastroschisis patients, with only one death attributable to prematurity. All other deaths were preventable, indicating that even lower mortality rates are feasible. Omphalocele was associated with a 23% incidence of premature birth but associated anomalies were present in 66% of the patients. Major cardiac (52%) and chromosomal defects (40%) predominated. In addition, 17% of omphalocele patients had either Cantrell's pentalogy or cloacal/bladder exstrophy. The mortality rate in omphalocele (34%) was nearly three times that of gastroschisis. Nine of ten patients who die...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.
