ABSTRACT: During the period 1996-98, 5 neonates underwent operative repair of gastroschisis at the Department of Pediatric Surgery, Christian Medical College Hospital, Vellore. While one patient was closed primarily, the other 4 patients underwent silo creation using plastic material cut from a urine drainage bag. Two of these had a successful result and have been followed up for more than 6 months. The other two died of causes unrelated to the repair technique. We conclude that this plastic material from urine drainage bag is a freely available, cheap and effective alternative to other materials in the staged closure of gastroschisis.
