Twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) is a multifactorial disorder that develops in 9-15% of diamniotic-monochorionic twin gestations. While the pathogenesis of TTTS remains poorly understood, unbalanced deep artery-to-vein (AV) anastomoses have traditionally been implicated in the gradual shift of blood from donor to recipient. The aim of this study was to define the placental markers of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, with special emphasis on the deep AV anastomoses. A prospective… CONTINUE READING
