Objective To compare neonatal morbidity and mortality in a large cohort of triplet pregnancies with singleton and twin neonates managed at a single tertiary center over a short time. Methods Records from all triplet pregnancies managed and delivered from 1992 to 1996 were reviewed for neonatal outcome data. Pregnancies delivered before 20 weeks' gestation and neonates with lethal congenital anomalies were excluded. The comparison group comprised all singleton and twin neonates managed in the… Expand
Neonatal outcome of triplet versus twin and singleton pregnancies: a matched case control study.
TLDR
Triplets have a similar outcome to twins and singletons when matched for gestational age, and the closer the Gestational age is to term the better is the outcome. Expand
Twins and triplets: the effect of plurality and growth on neonatal outcome compared with singleton infants.
TLDR
Intrauterine growth restriction and prematurity are the principal issues that drive neonatal mortality and morbidity rates in multiple gestations and data on a large number of twins and triplets provide reassurance that neonatal outcome at all viable premature weeks of gestation are similar to singletons.

MATERNAL AND NEONATAL OUTCOME OF TRIPLET VERSUS TWIN AND SINGLETON PREGNANCIES
TLDR
This study concluded that this study could be use- ful in counseling patients with respect to the anticipated perinatal outcome of triplet pregnancies and the risks of maternal morbidity and obstetric complications are increased in triplets pregnancies. Expand
Impact of gestational age at delivery of the economics of triplet pregnancy.
TLDR
Triplet pregnancy charges averaged almost $190,000 each, which does not include charges associated with assisted reproductive technologies, which are almost all related to the expense of prolonged neonatal intensive care, and are significantlyrelated to the gestational age at delivery. Expand
Maternal and fetal outcomes of triplet gestation in a tertiary hospital in oman.
TLDR
The maternal and neonatal outcomes of triplet pregnancies in a tertiary care centre in Oman were similar to those reported in other studies. Expand
Obstetric complications and perinatal outcome in triplet pregnancies
TLDR
Over a 15-year period there were 35 triplet pregnancies beyond 24 weeks that delivered at the King Fahad Hospital, an incidence of 1 in 1,099 deliveries, with pre-term labour being the most common followed by anaemia. Expand

TLDR
Triplets and quadruplets have a similar neonatal outcome as twins when matched for gestational age, and there is no influence of birth on the neonatal mortality of triplet pregnancy. Expand
Infant and perinatal outcomes of triplet pregnancy in Auckland: better than expected?
TLDR
Although triplets represent a significant burden on the regional NICUs the outcome, including those <1500 g at birth, compares favourably with that reported. Expand
Comparative outcome study between triplet and singleton preterm newborns
TLDR
Mothers of triplets were more likely to receive prenatal tocolytic treatment and more antenatal steroids for foetal lung maturation, and to be delivered by caesarean section, than singleton preterm newborns. Expand
Perinatal care improves the outcome of triplets.
TLDR
Advances in neonatal care, but also the delivery of infants in better overall condition must be the explanation for improved outcome of triplet gestations managed by modified care. Expand

Maternal and perinatal complications in triplet compared with twin pregnancy.
TLDR
This data of the anticipated perinatal outcome in triplet and twin pregnancies may be used to counsel women with a triplet pregnancy considering selective reduction to twins, mainly related to the lower birth-weight. Expand
Maternal morbidity associated with triplet pregnancy.
TLDR
Antenatal and postnatal maternal complications occur in almost all triplet gestations, suggesting that such pregnancies be managed at centers that have appropriate multidisciplinary expertise available. Expand
Perinatal outcome in triplet versus twin gestations
TLDR
Maternal and neonatal outcome was evaluated in 15 triplet and twin pregnancies that were matched for maternal age, race, type of medical insurance, delivery mode, parity, and history of previous preterm delivery to determine whether triplet pregnancies are associated with a significantly worse perinatal outcome. Expand
The improving outcome of triplet pregnancies.
TLDR
Results of this study suggest that cesarean section is the preferred mode of delivery in triplet pregnancies and compare favorably with recent reports on twin pregnancies. Expand
Costs of triplet pregnancy.
TLDR
Combined maternal and neonatal costs per individual baby delivered was approximately $21,000, far from prohibitive, even in times of close attention to health care expenditures. Expand
The maternal and neonatal outcome of triplet gestations.
TLDR
Perinatal mortality rates have improved in recent years but remain higher than for singleton gestations, despite increasing experience with triplets, and the rate of maternal complications is high. Expand
The outcome of triplet, quadruplet, and quintuplet pregnancies managed in a perinatal unit: obstetric, neonatal, and follow-up data.
TLDR
Early diagnosis by ultrasonography, meticulous antenatal care, early hospitalization, delivery by cesarean section, and on-site availability of a neonatologist for each baby at the time of delivery are the probable major determinants of improved outcome. Expand
Outcome of twin, triplet, and quadruplet in vitro fertilization pregnancies: the Norfolk experience.
TLDR
Triplet and quadruplet IVF pregnancies have increased obstetrical and neonatal complications compared with IVF twins and the perinatal mortality and the incidence of congenital malformations are comparable in all three groups. Expand
Outpatient triplet management: a contemporary review.
TLDR
The corrected perinatal survival rate was 95% in this contemporary review of outpatient triplet management and represents a major improvement in the expected outcome for triplets. Expand

TLDR
Triplet pregnancy of over 20 weeks gestation occurred 20 times during 75,506 deliveries at a referral hospital, highlighting the importance of early identification and referral center care for these vulnerable pregnancies. Expand
