An abdominoschisis refers to a spilt + / - defect in the abdomen. Some authors however use the term synonymously with a gastroschisis. When the defect continues into the thoracic region it is then termed a thoraco-abdominoschisis. A large abdominoschisis is considered part of the limb body wall complex 2.
