Abdominoschisis

Last revised by Dr Daniel J Bell on 18 Dec 2019

Abdominoschisis (plural: abdominoschises) refers to a split or defect in the abdominal wall. Some authors use the term synonymously with a gastroschisis. When the defect continues into the thoracic region it is termed a thoracoabdominoschisis. A large abdominoschisis is considered part of the limb body wall complex 2.
