  1. Omphalocele

    An omphalocele is a type of abdominal wall defect in which the intestines, liver, and occasionally other organs remain outside of the abdomen in a sac because of a defect in the development of the muscles of the abdominal wall. Omphalocele occurs in 2.5/10,000 births and is associated with a high rate of mortality and severe malformations, such as cardiac anomalies and neural tube defect. Approximately 15% of live-born infants with omphalocele have chromosomal abnormalities.
