Gastroschisis: State of the Art in Translating Experimental Research to the Bedside

Eur J Pediatr Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1694746The survival rate of newborns with gastroschisis (GS) has been increasing in the past decades; however, the morbidity continues to be high, mainly related to the length of hospitalization due to disturbances of motility, absorption, and risk of intestinal infections. The development of basic research with the creation of experimental models has provided enormous advances in the understanding of the pathophysiology of the disease. These models allowed the study of the target genes involved in the embryology of the defect, the influence of the amniotic fluid, and the use of drugs and fetal therapies in an attempt to reduce the intestinal damage and to provide a rapid return of intestinal motility. Our aim was to describe the main GS models and the translational, historical impact of these research advances on the disease.

This article outlines the global surgery activities held at the 66th Annual International Meeting of the British Association of Paediatric Surgeons (BAPS) in 2019. For the first time BAPS introduced a plenary session on global surgery. Topics that were covered include management of birth defects in Low-Middle Income Countries (LMIC), mostly gastroschisis, and community-based involvement in children's surgery, knowing that 2.5 billion children worldwide do not have access to surgical care. The presentation on financial burden for families with children needing surgical care highlighted the route to poverty in the absence of...
