This association is attributed to intrauterine vascular compromise. Furthermore, a probable omphalomesenteric artery (OMA) remnant was found on the right side of the defect opposite the umbilicus and extended with bifurcation to the mesenteries of the colon and ileum, between which colonic atresia occurred. This provided further evidence in… CONTINUE READING
