PURPOSE: Umbilical cord hernia is poorly understood and often miscategorized as "omphalocele minor". Careless clamping of the cord leads to iatrogenic gut injury in the situation of umbilical cord hernia. This study aimed to determine the characteristics and outcomes of umbilical cord hernias. We also highlight an alternative repair method for umbilical cord hernias. METHODS: We recorded 15 cases of umbilical cord hernias over 10 years. The patients' data were retrospectively reviewed, and preoperative preparation of the newborn, gestational age, birth weight, other associated malformations, surgical technique used, enteral nutrition, and length of hospitalization were recorded...

OBJECTIVE: Fraser syndrome (FS) is a rare malformation recessive disorder. Major criteria are cryptophtalmos, syndactyly, respiratory, genital and urinary tract anomalies. Few antenatal presentations have been reported. METHOD: We analyzed the prenatal and postnatal fetal phenotype in 38 cases of FS, including 25 pregnancy termination cases, 8 intra-uterine death cases and 4 cases that died after birth. RESULTS: Including both prenatal and postnatal fetal phenotypic evaluation, all cases presented dysmorphic features with nose and ear dysplasia...

BACKGROUND: The management of malrotation in patients with congenital abdominal wall defects has varied among surgeons. We were interested in investigating the risk of midgut volvulus in patients with gastroschisis and omphalocele to help determine if these patients may benefit from undergoing a Ladd procedure. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed for all patients managed at three institutions born between 1/1/2000 and 12/31/2008 with a diagnosis of gastroschisis or omphalocele...

PURPOSE: To investigate the relationship between the thorax diameter and defect diameter of giant omphaloceles as a predictor for fetal outcome. METHODS: In a retrospective study, 17 fetuses with isolated giant omphaloceles were included for evaluation. The anterior-posterior thorax diameter and the defect diameter were measured from ultrasound images. For analysis, the thorax-to-head ratio (T/HC), the defect diameter-to-head ratio (DD/HC), and the quotient of the defect diameter and the thorax diameter (DD/T) were calculated...

BACKGROUND: Reciprocal epithelial-mesenchymal communications are critical throughout lung development, dictating branching morphogenesis and cell specification. Numerous signaling molecules are involved in these interactions but how epithelial-mesenchymal crosstalk is coordinated remains unclear. The ERK/MAPK pathway transduces several important signals in lung formation. Epithelial inactivation of both Mek genes, encoding ERK/MAPK kinases, causes lung agenesis and death. Conversely, Mek mutation in mesenchyme results in lung hypoplasia, trachea cartilage malformations, kyphosis, omphalocele and death...

Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome (BWS) is an overgrowth disorder with various congenital anomalies. Although the most classic constellation includes macrosomia, macroglossia, and omphalocele, nephrourological findings are commonly associated with BWS. Clinical presentation is highly variable because of its complex molecular heterogeneity, which involves changes in DNA methylation and disruption of growth regulatory genes. We report 3 pediatric patients, ages 13 months to 3 years old, who presented with clinical features consistent with BWS...

PURPOSE: Despite the numerous methods of closure for giant omphaloceles, uncertainty persists regarding the most effective option. Our purpose was to review the literature to clarify the current methods being used and to determine superiority of either staged surgical procedures or nonoperative delayed closure in order to recommend a standard of care for the management of the giant omphalocele. METHODS: Our initial database search resulted in 378 articles. After de-duplification and review, we requested 32 articles relevant to our topic that partially met our inclusion criteria...

OBJECTIVE: According to major difficulty for the giant omphalocele management in the visceral reintegration and the parietal closure, many teams use currently conservative treatment by topical application. These techniques are suppliers of a covered eventration and a scar sequela requiring a complementary treatment. We report the place of the tissue expansion as complementary treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Two patients with a giant omphalocele benefited from a protocol of cutaneous expansion for the correction of their abdominal scar±of their residual eventration...

We describe the first case of prenatally detected teratoma of the fetal abdomen wall using ultrasound and fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A heterogeneous mass, partly solid and cystic, originating from the anterior abdominal wall of the fetus close to an omphalocele sac was detected by means of 2D/3D ultrasound and MRI. Amniodrainage was performed and due to sign of impending fetal risk, an emergency Cesarean section was performed. A bulky, crumbly and bleeding tumoral mass was confirmed at delivery...

INTRODUCTION: Neonatal thyrotoxicosis is a life-threatening condition with potentially irreversible neurologic sequelae. Most cases are seen in neonates born to mothers with Graves' disease. Topical iodine-induced hypothyroidism has been reported in neonates, but iodine-induced neonatal hyperthyroidism has not been described; albeit a familiar entity in adults. CASE DESCRIPTION: Herein we present a unique case of a neonate, born with a giant omphalocele, who was treated with topical povidone-iodine dressings to promote escharification, in preparation for delayed surgical closure...

Geographical clusters are defined as the occurrence of an unusual number of cases higher than expected in a given geographical area in a certain period of time. The aim of this study was to identify potential geographical clusters of specific selected congenital anomalies (CA) in Argentina. The cases were ascertained from 703,325 births, examined in 133 maternity hospitals in the 24 provinces of Argentina. We used the spatial scan statistic to determine areas of Argentina which had statistically significant elevations of prevalence...

Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome (BWS) is the most common imprinting disorder and consequently, one of the most common cancer predisposition disorders. Over the past 20 years, our understanding of the genetics and epigenetics leading to BWS has evolved and genotype/phenotype correlations have become readily apparent. Clinical management of these patients is focused on omphaloceles, hypoglycemia, macroglossia, hemihypertrophy, and tumor screening. Until recently, the need for tumor screening has been thought to be largely uniform across all genetic and epigenetic causes of BWS...

BACKGROUND: Pregnant women have higher risks of influenza complications, but vaccine coverage is incomplete. Because concern about fetal harm limits uptake, we investigated risks for preterm delivery (PTD) and specific birth defects following vaccination in the 2011-12 through 2013-14 influenza seasons. METHODS: We used data from the Slone Epidemiology Center's Birth Defects Study. For PTD, propensity score-adjusted time-varying hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were estimated for exposure anytime in pregnancy and for each trimester...

BACKGROUND: Twinning has been associated with many types of birth defects, although previous studies have had inconsistent findings. Many studies lack information about potential confounders, particularly use of fertility treatment. Our objective was to assess the association between twinning and birth defects in the National Birth Defects Prevention Study (NBDPS). METHODS: We used data from the NBDPS, a population-based, case-control study of major birth defects in the USA, to evaluate associations between twinning and birth defects...
