Gastroschsisis is associated with more than 95% long-term survival in high-income countries, yet persistently very poor survival in low-income countries.

This webinar explored the current status of gastroschisis outcomes throughout the world, focusing particularly on low- and middle-income countries and present some clinical and research work that may improve outcomes in different environments. Guest Presenters from throughout the world shared their experiences, isolated the challenges they face, and identified processes to resolve the challenges.

Guest Presenters were asked to address three questions:

  1. What are the primary challenges in their settings?
  2. What measures have been taken to address the challenges?
  3. How have these measures improved outcomes or how are data being collected to assess outcomes?

Learning Objectives

  • To explore current challenges in the care of gastroschisis patients in all environments, with a focus on low- and middle-income countries.
  • To present interventions that may improve outcomes of gastroschisis in diverse health care environments.

Visitors will gain knowledge that may enable them to improve the outcomes of gastroschisis in their own practice.
