Background/Purpose: Contact with amniotic fluid (AF) causes intestinal damage in gastroschisis, which has been shown to be caused by intraamniotic meconium. However, whether this intraamniotic meconium-induced intestinal damage is concentration dependent has not been investigated previously. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of intraamniotic human meconium at various concentrations on the intestines of chick embryo with gastroschisis.
