The intestinal fatty acid-binding protein as a marker for intestinal damage in gastroschisis.

PLoS One 2019 14;14(1):e0210797. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Charles University in Prague, 2nd Faculty of Medicine, University Hospital Motol in Prague, Prague, Czech Republic.

Background/purpose: We analyzed the capacity of urinary Intestinal fatty acid-binding protein (I-FABP) to quantify the degree of mucosal injury in neonates with gastroschisis (GS) and to predict the speed of their clinical recovery after surgery.

Methods: In this prospective study, we collected urine during the first 48h after surgery from neonates operated between 2012 and 2015 for GS. Neonates with surgery that did not include gut mucosa served as controls for simple GS and neonates with surgery for intestinal atresia served as control for complex GS patients. Read More

High risk of spontaneous preterm birth among infants with gastroschisis.

Am J Med Genet A 2019 Jan 14;179(1):37-42. Epub 2018 Dec 14.

California Preterm Birth Initiative, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, California.

We examined the association between gastroschisis and preterm birth (PTB, <37 weeks) by subtype. The sample was drawn from singleton live births in California from 2007 to 2012 contained in a birth cohort file maintained by the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (n = 2,891,965; 1,421 with gastroschisis). Relative risks (RRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated for PTB by gestational age (<34, 34-36, and any <37 weeks) and by type (spontaneous labor with intact membranes, preterm premature rupture of the membranes [PPROM], provider initiated) and were adjusted for maternal characteristics.

Non-transplant surgical management of short bowel syndrome in children: an overview.

Curr Pediatr Rev 2018 Nov 29. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

University of Florence, Meyer Children's Hospital, Florence. Italy.

Management of severe Short Bowel Syndrome (SBS) is still one of the largest challenges of the medicine. Vast majority of the short bowel patients are children, the conditions that lead to this possible outcome most often are necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), small intestinal volvulus as a result of intestinal malrotation, gastroschisis and the "apple peel" syndrome. Therefore paediatricians and paediatric surgeons face this challenge most often. Read More

Medium and long-term outcomes of gastroschisis.

Semin Pediatr Surg 2018 Oct 6;27(5):327-329. Epub 2018 Sep 6.

Department of Paediatric Surgery, Children's Hospital, University of Helsinki, P.O. Box 281, Helsinki FIN-00029 HUS, Finland. Electronic address:

As survival of gastroschisis patients has improved significantly, it has become apparent that longitudinal follow up strategies need to be developed. Problems concerning patients with gastroschisis are usually associated with gastrointestinal morbidity, but there is mounting evidence that also neurodevelopmental, cognitive, behavioral and late-onset auditory sequelae exist. The presence of associated anomalies, as well as complex features (bowel atresia, necrosis, volvulus, perforation) increase morbidity and impact long-term outcomes. Read More

Department of Pediatric Surgery; The Montreal Children's Hospital, McGill University Health Centre, Room B04.2028, 1001 Decarie Boulevard, Montreal, QC, Canada H4A 3J1. Electronic address:

Currently, the most important determinant of gastroschisis outcomes in high resource settings is whether the condition is associated with intestinal complications, such as atresia, necrosis, perforation, or volvulus. This form of the anomaly, known as complex gastroschisis, accounts for most of the mortality and a disproportionate burden of the morbidity from gastroschisis. There is some disagreement about what constitutes complex gastroschisis, and little consensus on the type and timing of surgical interventions. Read More

The expected outcome of gastroschisis has evolved from an almost certain death of the child prior to the use of parenteral nutrition to almost certain survival. The primary goal of the surgical intervention is return of eviscerated contents into the abdominal cavity. The optimal surgical technique is dependent on the status of the intestine and the accommodation of abdominal domain. Read More

Selection of outcome determinants and risk stratification are necessary to identify patients at higher risk for morbidity and mortality. This facilitates human and material resource allocation and allows for improved family counseling. While several different factors, including prenatal ultrasonographic bowel features, the timing and mode of delivery, and the features of bowel injury have been investigated in gastroschisis, there is still significant debate as to which of these best predicts outcome.
