Gastroschisis is one of common Ventral abdominal body wall defects... An infant with gastroschisis may have intestinal dysfunction. Prolonged exposure to amniotic fluid may cause mucosal or muscularis injury. Gastroschisis requires surgical treatment to return the exposed intestines to the abdominal cavity and close the hole in the abdomen.

Gastroschisis  It is a birth defect that develops in a baby while a woman is pregnant. This condition occurs when an opening forms in the baby's abdominal wall. The baby's bowel pushes through this hole. The bowel then develops outside of the baby's body in the amniotic fluid.
