We are reporting a case of twin reversed arterial perfusion (TRAP) sequence occurring in a dichorionic triamniotic triplet pregnancy with successful percutaneous prenatal treatment and excellent neonatal outcome. TRAP sequence was diagnosed at 11 weeks in a spontaneous dichorionic-triamniotic triplet. Sonographic assessment showed persistent arterial flow(More)
OBJECTIVE Residual anastomoses after fetoscopic laser surgery for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) may lead to severe postoperative complications, including recurrent TTTS and twin anemia-polycythemia sequence (TAPS). A novel technique (Solomon technique) using laser coagulation of the entire vascular equator was recently investigated in a(More)
OBJECTIVE Ventriculomegaly (VM) is the most common brain anomaly in prenatal ultrasound (US) diagnosis. There is a general trend to perform fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) when VM is severe (greater than 15 mm) and/or it is not isolated. The role of MRI is debated when VM is borderline (between 10 and 15 mm) and isolated. Some authors have subdivided(More)
Congenital hiatal hernia is a condition characterized by herniation of the abdominal organs, most commonly the stomach, through a physiological but overlax esophageal hiatus into the thoracic cavity. Prenatal diagnosis of this anomaly is unusual and only eight cases have been reported in the literature. In this paper we describe a case of congenital hiatal(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the predictive value of cervical length (CL) measured at mid gestation for spontaneous preterm birth (PTB) in triplet pregnancies. METHODS Retrospective study on asymptomatic triplet pregnancies followed at five Italian tertiary referral centres, between 2002 and 2015. CL was measured transvaginally between 18-24 weeks of gestation.(More)
Fetal pleural effusion, a nonspecific accumulation of fluid in the pleural space, is an uncommon anomaly which can be associated with aneuploidy and a range of other structural malformations or genetic syndromes. Spontaneous resolution is not rare and confers a good prognosis. Perinatal outcome is better for those fetuses without hydrops than those(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the incidence of fetal and maternal complications after selective fetoscopic laser surgery for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS). METHODS A total of 150 cases of TTTS were treated from January 2004 to June 2009 (period 1, 2004-2006, 62 cases; period 2, 2007 to June 2009, 88 cases). Fetal complications (double and single(More)
INTRODUCTION Vascular anastomoses in monochorionic (MC) twin placenta can be easily identified with color-dye injection. The aim of this study is to analyze the relationship between different type of anastomoses and twin pregnancy complications. METHODS From January 2011 to October 2014, MC placentas were analyzed with color-dye injection and five group(More)
