Abstract

Background: Gastroschisis is congenital abdominal wall defect in neonates which needs to be addressed immediately after birth. Various techniques for closure of the defect have been described in literature.
Case Report: We describe a sutureless closure of abdominal wall defect in a 1-day old newborn with gastroschisis.
Conclusion: Plastic sutureless closure could be the preferred technique for managing gastroschisis in resource constrained countries.
