Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the characteristics and diagnostic accuracy of prenatal ultrasonography in the diagnosis of abdominal wall malformations. Method: The characteristics of 113 pregnancies terminated due to abdominal wall malformations were analyzed. Results: In cases of gastroschisis and omphalocele, similar female dominance was observed. Among the associated malformations, those affecting the cardiovascular system and the extremities were especially common. Regarding the diagnostic accuracy of prenatal sonography, autopsy confirmed sonographic diagnoses in 91% of omphalocele cases and 79% of gastroschisis. Conclusion: Prenatal sonographic diagnosis is more accurate in omphaloceles than in gastroschisis.
