Management of Patent Omphalomesenteric Duct - Is Umbilicoplassty Is Must? In Neonates

Eti Sthapak, Vijai Datta Upadhyaya


Abstract: Patent omphalomesenteric duct (POMD) a rare entity, reportedly occurring in approximately 15 % omphalomesenteric duct anomalies. The basic step in the treatment of POMD is to excise the whole tract extending from umbilicus to intestine. As the approach dealing with such anomalies involves the umbilicus so it becomes mandatory not only to achieve a cure but also a good cosmetic result. This study is conducted to describe a new operative technique which not only provides an adequate exposure to peritoneal cavity but also achieves a better cosmetic result without umblicoplasty.
