OBJECTIVE An explorative retrospective study following a case-series of fetuses with isolated gastroschisis, to evaluate if small-bowel dilatation may be indicative for emerging obstetric complications. The secondary aim was to establish preliminary normative curves for the external diameter and wall thickness of eventerated fetal small bowel in(More)
