Monochorionic (MC) twins represent a significant proportion of perinatal morbidity and mortality. Overall, 1 of 3 MC twin pregnancies will develop complications in relation to the MC placenta and the presence of interfetal placental anastomoses. From a clinical standpoint, these complications can be grouped into four main types of clinical problems: chronic transfusion, acute transfusion, growth discordance, and discordant malformation. Differential diagnosis of MC twin complications is still… CONTINUE READING
