We report a case of a dizygotic monochorionic twin pregnancy preceded by intracytoplasmic sperm injection treatment including assisted hatching. On ultrasound examination at 25 weeks' gestation the twins, which had been assumed to be monochorionic, were found to be of different sexes. Karyotyping and zygocity determination were performed on amniotic fluid(More)
Twin gestation is often a hazardous pregnancy and especially the monochorionic twin pregnancy significantly contributes to fetal morbidity and mortality. Among the serious complications with twins, the twin-twin transfusion syndrome complicates 5-35% of monozygotic twin pregnancies with monochorionic placentation. Acardiac twinning, earlier known as(More)
OBJECTIVE Monochorionic twin pregnancies are associated with increased risk of severe complications. Umbilical cord occlusion (UCO) and fetoscopic selective laser coagulation (FSLC) are used as invasive treatment. The study aim was to document treatment indications and pregnancy outcome where UCO and FSLC were used for treating fetal discrepancies and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the impact which introduction of the 11-14 week scan has had on the gestational age at which fetal malformations are detected by ultrasound in an unselected population of pregnant women. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING University hospital, Copenhagen, Denmark, covering the period 1 January 2003 to 30 June 2007. POPULATION(More)
AIM To evaluate whether initiation of anti-hypertensive treatment with methyldopa affects fetal hemodynamics in women with pregestational diabetes. METHODS Prospective study of unselected singleton pregnant women with diabetes (seven type 1 and two type 2 diabetes), normal blood pressure and kidney function at pregnancy booking. Methyldopa treatment was(More)
INTRODUCTION Ultrasound-guided bipolar umbilical cord occlusion (UCO) is used in complicated monochorionic multiple pregnancies in Denmark. The aim of this study was to assess a learning curve in the procedure of UCO. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and two monochorionic pregnancies treated with UCO at Rigshospitalet, Denmark between 2004 and 2015 were(More)
By renal ultrasound examination, urological anomalies may be demonstrated in 1-2% of fetuses and in about 0.5% of newborns. Boys have about twice the frequency of girls. Surgical treatment is indicated in about one fourth of these urological anomalies. If all pregnant women in Denmark were to have fetal ultrasound examination of the kidneys and the urinary(More)
