Incidental septostomy, or inadvertent perforation of the twins' dividing membranes, can create a functional monoamniotic twin pregnancy. Our aim was to describe the perinatal outcomes and antenatal management of patients with incidental septostomy after laser surgery for twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS).

Name: Fetal diagnosis and therapy
The insertion site of the fetoscope for laser occlusion (FLOC) treatment of twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) determines the likelihood of treatment success. We assessed a standardized preoperativ...
We sought to assess the incidence of severe neurodevelopmental impairment (NDI) in monochorionic twins treated for twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) and compare it to the incidence in uncomplicate...
Twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome typically occurs in the second trimester in 10-15% of monochorionic twin pregnancies. Vascular anastomoses of monochorionic placentae are the underlying cause of the ...
We report a case of a monochorionic diamniotic twin diagnosed with twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS; stage 3) with co-existing severe cerebral damage in the donor twin at 18 + 4 weeks' gestation. ...
Humanitarian use device (HUD): Use of the fetoscopy instrument sets for selective laser photocoagulation in the treatment of Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS).
Twin-twin transfusion syndrome is one of the most severe complication in monochorionic twin pregnancies and can cause severe impairment of fetal and neonatal outcome. In severe TTTS the fe...
This is a study to compare two treatments (amnioreduction vs. selective fetoscopic laser photocoagulation [SFLP]) in patients with severe twin to twin transfusion syndrome.
Studies shows that the realization of the Ductus venosus Doppler may improve the screening of the twin-twin transfusion syndrome. In this study, we want to compare the outcome of monochori...
This study will be the first study that evaluates the effectiveness of antenatal corticosteroid (ACS) in late preterm twin neonates.
Passage of blood from one fetus to another via an arteriovenous communication or other shunt, in a monozygotic twin pregnancy. It results in anemia in one twin and polycythemia in the other. (Lee et al., Wintrobe's Clinical Hematology, 9th ed, p737-8)
Methods of detecting genetic etiology in human traits. The basic premise of twin studies is that monozygotic twins, being formed by the division of a single fertilized ovum, carry identical genes, while dizygotic twins, being formed by the fertilization of two ova by two different spermatozoa, are genetically no more similar than two siblings born after separate pregnancies. (Last, J.M., A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)
MONOZYGOTIC TWINS who are joined in utero. They may be well developed and share only a superficial connection, often in the frontal, transverse or sagittal body plane, or they may share a partial duplication of a body structure. Alternatively, there may be a small and incompletely developed twin conjoined to a larger, more fully developed twin.
Protein translocase in BACTERIA or CHLOROPLASTS that exports or secretes folded proteins. In GRAM-NEGATIVE BACTERIA, twin-arginine translocase (TAT) is involved in the export of folded proteins to the PERIPLASM. In chloroplasts, TAT is involved in transporting folded proteins across the membranes of THYLAKOIDS.
The condition of carrying TWINS simultaneously.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
