National Gastroschisis Awareness Day Wristbands

Gastroschisis is a birth defect in which an infant's intestines stick outside of the body because of a hole in the abdominal wall. The defect in the anterior abdominal wall causes the abdominal contents to freely protrude, where sometimes even the stomach and liver can also protrude. It takes place early during pregnancy period, when the soft tissues i.e., the muscles that form up the baby’s abdominal wall do not form right.

The intestines are not covered in a protective sac and are exposed to the amniotic fluid in the womb, causing bowel irritation and swelling. In order to repair the abdominal wall and to place the abdominal organs inside the baby’s body, a surgery is done, soon after the delivery. In most of the cases, infants with gastroschisis are said to have problems with digestion of food, feeding issues and nutrient absorption even after the surgery.

Gastroschisis Awareness Day Wristbands

To prevent Gastroschisis, the risk factors which lead up to the occurrence of this defect need to be understood. Just about 1871 babies are born every year in the United States with gastroschisis disorder, the center for disease and prevention control says.

The researchers at CDC have reported the findings about the risk factors causing gastroschisis in babies. Compared to the older mothers, this issue is most prevalent in teenage mothers. Also, women who consumed alcohol and tobacco products are more likely to have babies with gastroschisis. Therefore, it can be prevented by mothers before pregnancy and there are screening tests to check for birth defects during the pregnancy period.
