Gastroschisis: A Systemic Approach to Management

Abstract

Abstract Eight of nine infants with gastroschisis survived repair of their defect even though seven were premature or small for gestational age. Important factors in survival included preoperative maintenance of body temperature, acid-base balance, and prevention of bacterial contamination. Six patients required the use of mesh (Silon) to close the defect initially, and eight had gastrostomy tubes placed. None required hyperalimentation. References 1.
