Background: The definitive surgical management of gastroschisis is the return of the eviscerated abdominal content into the abdomen as soon as possible. Objectives: Assess the efficacy of using a sutureless elastic ring silo (SERS) for the management of gastroschisis. Methods: Neonates with gastroschisis were enrolled at Songklanagarind Hospital between January 2006 and December 2008. A primary repair (PR) was attempted in all cases. If this was not possible due to concerns about abdominal compartment syndrome, a stage abdominal closure with a silo pouch was fashioned: a traditional silo (TS) or SERS. When the bowel was completely reduced, a second-stage closure was performed in the operating room. Data collected included general demographic data, size of defect, associated anomalies, hospital course, mode of gastroschisis closure, duration of parenteral nutrition (PN) and ventilator, first feeding age, complications, and length of hospital stay (LOS). Results: Twenty-nine children with gastroschisis were treated (PR: 9, TS: 9, and SERS: 11). There were no differences (p >0.05) concerning gender, mode of delivery, APGAR scores, gestational age, birth weight, or defect size. A preformed silo was employed in 20 of 29 cases, TS in nine (31%), and SERS in 11 (38%) cases in an average operative time of 80.6 and 40 minutes, respectively, a significantly shorter operative time in the SERS (p =0.007). Overall, there were no differences (p >0.05) concerning duration of ventilator support (10.2 days), duration of PN (21.3 days), first feeding age (15 days), LOS (26.5 days), and complication. Conclusion: The use of a sutureless elastic ring silo with readily available inexpensive materials is simple, safe and efficacious in our setting.
