Trial of AMNIOECHANGE in Gastroschisis Affected Foetuses
Randomized Trial of AMNIOECHANGE in Gastroschisis Affected Foetuses
Hypothesis: Gastroschisis is a localised disruption of the abdominal layer. It occurs early in gestation, and the bowel is therefore bathing in the amniotic fluid and can be constricted at the level of the abdominal hole. The bowel is therefore submitted to different injuries partly attributable to the contact with amniotic fluid contaminated by digestive compounds and inducing an inflammatory reaction. Experimental studies on animal models and preliminary data in humans indicate that changing regularly the amniotic fluid (i.e. AMNIOECHANGE) would improve the outcome of theses fetuses and then neonates.

Primary Objective: To compare prospectively the effect of AMNIOECHANGE against classical care on the delay of full enteral feeding in gastroschisis affected foetuses


  • Multicenter, Randomized.
  • Inclusion at 20 GA (gestational age) weeks.
  • AMNIOECHANGE every 2 weeks from 30 GA weeks

Subject: 140 inclusion during 3 years

Analysis: Triangular Sequential Evaluation

Phase 3
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
The AMNIOECHANGE consists of a transabdominal infusion of saline (heated to 37 ° C) with a needle 18 or 20 gauge under ultrasound monitoring while avoiding the placenta. In the case of a normal amniotic fluid, it must be replaced volume per volume of saline (eg depending on the tank where the puncture is made, it can be 300 per 300 ml). The total amount of amniotic fluid exchange is 600-900 ml. In cases of oligohydramnios, the AMNIOECHANGE results in a normalized volume of amniotic fluid.
  • Active Comparator: AMNIOECHANGE
    The AMNIOECHANGE consists of a transabdominal infusion of saline.They will be repeated every 15 days from 30 week of amenorrhea.
    Intervention: Procedure: AMNIOECHANGE
  • No Intervention: placebo
    This will be done at the same place and under the same aseptic conditions a AMNIOECHANGE true.
    Intervention: Procedure: AMNIOECHANGE
