OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to gain insight on the cause of absent or reverse end-diastolic velocity (AREDV) in the umbilical artery (UA) of the donor twin by analysis of individual placental mass and vascular anastomoses in patients with twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) treated with laser. STUDY DESIGN TTTS patients who successfully… CONTINUE READING
