OBJECTIVE We sought to assess long-term neurodevelopment of children who were treated prenatally as part of the Eurofoetus randomized controlled trial. STUDY DESIGN The study population was composed of 128 cases of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) included and followed up in France. Survivors were evaluated by standardized neurological examination(More)
Monochorionic twins are subjected to specific complications which originate in either imbalance or abnormality of the single placenta serving two twins. This unequal placental sharing can cause complications including twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS), twin anemia-polycythemia sequence (TAPS), selective intrauterine growth restriction or twin reversed(More)
Monochorionic twins are subjected to specific complications which originate in either imbalance or abnormality of the single placenta serving two twins including twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. The diagnosis is well established in overt clinical forms with the association of polyuric polyhydramnios and oliguric oligohydramnios. The best treatment of(More)
OBJECTIVES Cardiomyopathy in the recipient twin is a marker of severity in twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS), making it a potentially valuable tool for staging the disease. This study aimed to provide a quantitative description of cardiac function in the recipient twin. METHODS Consecutive monochorionic pregnancies complicated with TTTS and treated by(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the incidence and risk factors of limb constriction defects that are related to pseudoamniotic band syndrome (PABS) after selective fetoscopic laser surgery (FLS) in fetofetal transfusion syndrome (FFTS). STUDY DESIGN All consecutive cases of FFTS that were treated by selective FLS between 1999 and 2006(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the incidence and nature of prenatal brain damage following fetoscopic laser selective coagulation (FLSC) of placental vessels for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS). DESIGN Retrospective observational study. SETTING Single center cohort. POPULATION All consecutive cases referred for TTTS treated by FLSC between 2003 and(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims to compare outcomes of active management of monochorionic diamniotic twin pregnancies complicated with severe intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) of one twin before 24 weeks with continuous or intermittent absent or reversed end-diastolic flow (AREDF) in the umbilical artery, with or without twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome(More)
OBJECTIVE Fetal urine production in twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) reflects the hemodynamic imbalance between the donor and recipient twins but it has not been measured in this particular condition. The aim of this study was to measure fetal urine production using three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound in donor and recipient twins before and after(More)
OBJECTIVES Study the outcomes of triplet pregnancies (GGG) complicated with twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) treated with laser fetoscopy. METHODS Retrospective study of interventions, outcomes and perinatal follow-up of GGG treated for TTS. RESULTS Between 2002 and 2013, 25 GGG complicated by TTTS were seen in our center, 20 dichorionic and 5(More)
OBJECTIVE To review prevalence, management and prognostic factors of pulmonary stenosis (PS) in monochorionic diamniotic (MCDA) pregnancies complicated by twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS). METHODS Retrospective study over the last 10 years in a single referral center. We reviewed fetal echocardiography data of all MC twin cases with diagnosis of(More)
