Sarah Louise Williamson, Louise Lawrence, Anthony Lander, Shree Vishna Rasiah
Exomphalos is an abdominal wall defect that is commonly associated with other abnormalities and/or chromosomal anomalies; however, there is limited information about the incidence of co-morbidities, management strategies and outcomes in this population. This retrospective case review describes key outcomes for 29 infants with exomphalos admitted to a surgical neonatal intensive care unit over a nine-year period.
