OBJECTIVES The goal of fetoscopic laser surgery for twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) is to ablate all placental vascular communications, thereby separating the fetal circulatory systems. We sought to ascertain the frequency and clinical implications of residual vascular communications (RVC) post preferential sequential selective laser photocoagulation of communicating vessels (SQLPCV). STUDY DESIGN TTTS placentas treated via preferential SQLPCV were examined. Patency of vascular… CONTINUE READING
