OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare monoamniotic-monochorionic and diamniotic-monochorionic twin placentas and to estimate the incidence of twin-twin transfusion syndrome in monoamniotic-monochorionic twin pregnancies. STUDY DESIGN We analyzed the angioarchitecture and cord insertion distance in 24 monoamniotic-monochorionic and 200 diamniotic-monochorionic placentas. RESULTS Compared with diamniotic-monochorionic placentas, monoamniotic-monochorionic placentas had… CONTINUE READING
