(See also Congenital abnormalities of the gastrointestinal tract at a glance.) As omphalocele is defined as a protrusion of the intestines within a midline defect at the base of the belly button. In the omphalocele the hernial sac is covered by a thin skin and can be small, including only a few loops of intestine or the bulk of the abdominal viscera contain (intestine, stomach and liver). The immediate hazards are drying out of the viscera, hypothermia, which can be attributed from the exposed viscera on the loss of heat by evaporation of water and an infection of the peritoneal surface. The estimated incidence is 1 in 3000 live births. Infants with omphalocele have a very high incidence of other congenital anomalies (up 70%), including Darmatresie chromosomal changes (eg. As Down syndrome) heart abnormalities and kidney abnormalities The omphalocele can be discovered during routine prenatal sonography. If this fault is present, the delivery should take place in a hospital, has his staff with this and other so often associated anomalies experience.
