OBJECTIVES Increased perinatal mortality in monoamniotic twin pregnancies is attributed to cord accidents in utero and at delivery. We evaluated the following parameters in monoamniotic pregnancies: (1) the incidence of cord entanglement; (2) the effect of sulindac on amniotic fluid volume and stability of fetal lie; and (3) the perinatal outcome with our current management paradigm. METHODS This is a retrospective review of monoamniotic pregnancies of >or=20 weeks' gestation managed with… CONTINUE READING
