CONDE, Andrés; ZUNINI, Santiago  and  SOSA, Claudio. Estudio descriptivo de los nacimientos con gastrosquisis en el Centro Hospitalario Pereira Rossell. Rev. Méd. Urug. [online]. 2013, vol.29, n.1, pp.16-25. ISSN 1688-0390.

Summary Objective: to learn about the incidence of vaginal or C-section deliveries of complex pregnancies of fetus with gastroschisis and born here, at the Pereira Rossell Hospital Center Method: descriptive study of newborns with gastroschisis who were born at the Pereira Rossell hospital center from January, 2005 through, May 2009. The figures entered in the database of the pediatric surgery department were used, together with the data in the deliveries book and the Perinatal Computing System associated to maternal data. Results: these data reveals a 9.82/10,000 birth rate, higher than the incidence internationally reported. Vaginal delivery accounted for 35.1% compared to 62.2% of C-section deliveries. No meaningful difference of weight at birth was found in connection with the way to deliver: 2,322.69 g in vaginal deliveries (± 314 g), compared to 2,215 g (± 391 g) in C-sections, and neither was it found in terms of gestational age at birth, 36 weeks being the average in both cases. Conclusions: no significant differences were found in terms of the incidence of complications, both medical and surgical, regardless of the way to deliver. The latter, does not constitute a prognostic factor for the evolution of the newborns carriers of gastroschisis at our hospital center.
