Abstract
Presently, there is not much literature on therapy of severe gastroschisis with concomitant ultra-short bowel syndrome in newborn, even though the numbers of patients are rising. For an early starting treatment, there is even no data at all. We are presenting the case of a premature born child who had severe gastroschisis with a type 3b atresia of the small intestine and a resulting ultra-short bowel syndrome. It is usually recommended to wait some time with the therapy, but there is no concrete strategy or guideline in case waiting is not an option. For this reason, we now present our approach with an early serial transverse enteroplasty procedure, which entailed a positive result.
