Please consider amending the definition of "omphalocele [MP:0003052]" to reflect the following:

"Omphalocele represents another ventral body wall defect..., but it does not arise from a failure in body wall closure. Instead, it originates when portions of the gut tube (the midgut) that normally herniates into the umbilical cord ... (physiological umbilical herniation) fails to return to the abdominal cavity"
