Gradual bowel dilatation and thinning of the bowel wall were confirmed at our institution by fetal imaging, which led to the suspicion of intestinal atresia. The patient underwent repair of the perforation and small intestinal resection, formation of a separat...

In Reply In their letter, Reece and Hulse suggest there may be a correlation between cannabis consumption and gastroschisis based on the high consumption of cannabis in counties where we have found high rates of gastroschisis. To be clear, Reece and Hulse are inaccurate in their statement that we “found rurality was a risk factor for cannabis use.” Instead, we found higher rates of gastroschisis in rural counties. In a follow-up study, we found that fetal exposure to drugs other than alcohol, cocaine, narcotics, or hallucinogenics (odds ratio [OR], 3.27; 95% CI, 1.05-10.15;P = .04) and other noxio...

To the Editor We note the report on the gastroschisis incidence rising 3.1-fold from 1995 to 2012. The 20-fold variation across California mirrors the 10-fold variation across Canada, where the distribution pattern closely mirrored cannabis consumption and from where a cannabis-adjusted odds ratio (OR) of 3.54 (95% CI, 2.22-5.63) has been reported.

Gastroschisis remains a morbid and costly congenital defect, predominantly owing to sequelae of intestinal dysmotility and malabsorption. Although fetal surgical repair has been demonstrated in a lamb model, it is unclear whether this improves intestinal motility and feeding tolerance.
