What are the associated anomalies?
X-rays are carried out to confirm whether an atresia is present. If an atresia is confirmed the baby would need a further operation to join the bowel together. However in a small number of babies the Gastroschisis is complicated by further problems with the bowel that are not normally detected before the baby is born. The blood supply to the bowel is sometimes interrupted resulting in parts of the bowel being irreversibly damaged or missing. This is known as short bowel syndrome. It could mean long term hospitalisation and its risks.
