Feto-fetal transfusion syndrome (FFTS) in monochorionic triplets is a rare clinical entity which may share the principal adverse perinatal outcomes of twin-twin transfusion syndrome. Recently, favorable prognoses regarding morbidity and mortality in twins after selective laser photocoagulation of placental communicating vessels (SLPCV) have been described. But descriptions of this procedure in monochorionic triplet cases are limited. This is the case report of an experience of SLPCV applied to… CONTINUE READING
