Objective. The previous studies of monochorionic monoamniotic (MCMA) twins reported perinatal mortality rates as high as 70–80%. The recent trends have been towards significantly improved outcomes, though results from all studies have not been consistent. Method. A retrospective cohort analysis of all MCMA pregnancies ≥20 weeks delivered in a single university institution from 2001 to 2009, using a computerised hospital database. MCMA twins are managed by a close antenatal surveillance program… Expand
