If you have the surgery for gastrochesis, what are the chances it will revert?

In brief: Less than 5%

The description of reversion of a gastroschisis is really the development of an incisional hernia at the repair site with or without evisceration of the intestines.
This represents a breakdown or impaired healing of the surgical site. Evisceration is extremely rare, while the risk of developing a hernia at the site is probably around 5% of cases. This can be re-repaired surgically.

I have not seen it revert once it is corrected.
