Abstract

Gastroschisis is one of the most challenging congenital anomalies that physicians treat in the first 2 months of life. Over the last 40 years, tremendous progress has been made in the management of this defect. Survival has increased significantly during this period as well. However, gastroschisis still presents the clinician with a unique set of challenges as a result of secondary effects on intestinal development. These challenges or clinical considerations are discussed in this review including a history of the management of the defect, prenatal counseling, prenatal intervention, postnatal and surgical management, complications and long-term outcomes.
