Omphalocele is a rare congenital disorder that happens in about one in 5000 cases. This is a condition when the bowel, liver or some other organs remain outside the belly in a sac. This leads to improper growth of the belly and further complications post birth.
HOW IS OMPHALOCELE DIAGNOSED?
The diagnosis can be done while the child is in the mother’s womb. An ultrasound usually helps in identifying the problem and can be detected between the age of 12 to 18 weeks during the pregnancy. It will be detected immediately upon birth if it has not been found during the ultrasound.
HOW IS OMPHALOCELE TREATED?
A general surgery is recommended based on the condition of the baby post birth. A caesarean birth is performed to avoid any injury to the baby.
DID YOU KNOW?
Children born with an omphalocele can recover completely after surgery. But full recovery is also dependant on the other complications that might occur with this condition.
