Abdominal wall gaps

Through the navel or through an intestinal malformation of the abdominal wall, which occurred in an inhibited embryonal development, the intestine leaves the abdomen – laparoschisis / gastroschisis -,  enters into the umbilical cord – omphalocele -, or into the chest – diaphragmatic hernia / enterothorax -.
These children require immediate surgical treatment after birth and then immediately following interdisciplinary care.
