Surgical management of congenital omphalocele in kid
Rama T, Divya T and Rasmita Panda
A newborn female kid was admitted to the Veterinary dispensary with ruptured amnion covering and intestinal mass protruding out through umbilical opening. It was diagnosed as congenital omphalocele. Under proper anesthesia, the soiled protruded intestine was washed with normal saline and pushed through the opening followed by suturing. The proper post- operative care and aseptic measures were taken to prevent any kind of contamination. On 10th day the suture was removed and the kid appeared apparently healthy. It has been concluded that the surgical management done for treating congenital omphalocele in kid has good prognosis.
