English term or phrase: gastroschisis
Definition from WebMD, LLC.:
Gastroschisis is a rare congenital disorder in which a defect is present in the wall of the abdomen. Typically there is a small abdominal cavity with herniated abdominal organs that usually appear on the right side of the abdomen. There is no membranous sac covering the organs and the intestines may be swollen and look shortened due to exposure to the liquid that surrounds the fetus during pregnancy (amniotic fluid).

Example sentence(s):
  • In addition, the intestine always fails to fall into its normal position and does not make its normal attachments to the back of the abdomen. In contrast to infants with omphalocele, associated problems are relatively rare in patients with gastroschisis. American Pediatric Surgical Association
  • The diagnosis of gastroschisis is usually made by ultrasound, in many cases following an elevated maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein test in the second trimester. The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
  • Gastroschisis is an uncommon birth defect, seen in about 1 of 5,000 births. Although about 10% of infants with gastroschisis have an intestinal atresia in which a portion of the intestine does not develop, the defect is rarely associated with other genetic abnormalities.

Definition from Fundació Sant Joan de Déu:
Fissura de la paret abdominal amb protrusió intestinal

Example sentence(s):
  • Nadona preterme, afectada de gastròsquisi i remesa als 3 mesos al nostre centre. Longitud intestinal total de 40 cm. Depenia de nutrició parenteral i presentava alteració molt greu de la funció hepàtica. Amb STEP es va assolir una longitud final de 50 cm. Malgrat que va començar a tolerar dieta elemental poc després de la cirurgia, la funció hepàtica va empitjorar.
