Abstract

Long-term follow-up of children with gastroschisis has been made possible by the increased survival of these infants over the past 20 years. We have observed that children with isolated gastroschisis defects exhibit normal growth and development beyond 5 years of age without significant bowel sequelae. Infants with gastroschisis with concomitant bowel atresia or complications who require small bowel resection are at a greatly increased risk for long-term bowel problems and abdominal complaints.
