Fetal Gastroschisis

A congenital defect in a baby's abdominal wall that allows the infant's intestines to protrude into the amniotic sac, causing them to cease their normal movement.

Fetal Hernia/Hydrocele

During fetal development, a sac surrounding an infant's normally descending sexual organs does not close, allowing the intestine to bulge through the opening, or fluid build-up.

Fetal Intestinal Atresia

A congenital defect in which a part of the intestines fails to form properly, resulting in an obstruction or blockage.

Fetal Omphalocele

A congenital defect of the abdominal wall allowing some abdominal organs to protrude through it. A translucent membrane or sac covers the protruding organs.
