Unlike gastroschisis, fetuses with an omphalocele have a higher risk of associated anomalies of the cardiovascular system (16-20%), genitourinary system (40%), and the central nervous system (4%) (Pickett, 1979). Complications involving the gastro intestinal system can also present, such as atresia of the bowel (secondary to vascular compromise), incomplete rotation of the intestine, and occasionally abnormal fixation of the liver.
