Background. Following vaginal delivery of the first twin, the further management to deliver the second twin is in dispute. Controversial discussions have taken place on the importance of the time interval between the birth of the first and the second twin. Objective. To evaluate factors influencing twin‐to‐twin delivery time interval, and short‐term outcome of the second twin in a complete population‐based cohort in Hesse, Germany. Study design. In a population‐based cohort study, between… Expand

TLDR
The results of the present study show a correlation between umbilical pH and twin-to-twin DTI, but independent of chorionicity, from gestational week 30 to term. Expand
The effect of twin-to-twin delivery time intervals on neonatal outcome for second twins
TLDR
An association, but not necessarily a causality, between twin-to-twin delivery interval and primary outcome was seen and an upper time limit on twin- To-Twin delivery time intervals may be justified, but the optimal time interval needs further studies. Expand
Inter-twin delivery interval, short-term perinatal outcomes and risk of caesarean for the second twin.
TLDR
The inter-twin delivery interval is associated with higher rates of low Apgar scores and higher cord lactate for the second twin, but these associations do not translate intoHigher rates of admission to NICU and their long-term clinical implications are uncertain. Expand
Effect of inter‐twin delivery interval on umbilical artery pH and Apgar score in the second twin
TLDR
The second twin's Apgar score and cord artery pH are probably not affected when the inter-twin delivery interval exceeds 30 minutes, according to this retrospective study on pregnant women with twin gestation who delivered the first twin vaginally at more than 24 weeks. Expand

TLDR
Increasing delivery interval was associated with a significant decrease in pH and Apgar, but there was no difference between monochorionic and dichorionic twins and the predictors of adverse outcome in both twins. Expand

TLDR
In this study, growth discrepancy between twins was significantly correlated to adverse neonatal outcomes, while intertwin delivery time was not an influencing factor. Expand
[Delivery of twins].
TLDR
To reduce the interval twin-to-twin delivery interval and the number of combined vaginal-cesarean births, in the authors' opinion, one must stop to perform external cephalic version and recommend a routinely active management for the second non-vertex twin delivery. Expand
Twin births: cesarean section or vaginal delivery?
TLDR
Dichorionic twins born after 36 weeks of gestation had a higher risk of poor outcome by intended vaginal delivery than by planned cesarean section and statistical differences in outcome by mode of delivery could not be seen. Expand
Umbilical Arterial Blood Gas and Perinatal Outcome in the Second Twin according to the Planned Mode of Delivery
TLDR
For twin deliveries, it is relatively safe to plan for a vaginal delivery, but an effort should be made to reduce the inter-twin delivery interval time. Expand
Induction of labour vs. spontaneous vaginal delivery in twin pregnancy after 36 weeks of gestation
TLDR
There were no statistical differences in patients with twin pregnancies who underwent labour induction and those with spontaneous labour regarding the history of previous caesarean delivery, parity, pregnancy achieved by assisted reproductive techniques, chorionicity and cervical dilation at the admission as well as maternal and neonatal morbidity, and admission to the neonatal intensive care unit.

Birth order, gestational age, and risk of delivery related perinatal death in twins: retrospective cohort study
TLDR
Second twins born at term are at higher risk than first twins of death due to complications of delivery, and Planned caesarean section of twins at term may prevent perinatal deaths. Expand
Time interval in twin delivery--the second twin need not always be born shortly after the first.
TLDR
The results indicate that in cases of uncomplicated twin delivery with a normal cardiotocogram there is no necessity for the second twin to be born as soon as possible after the birth of the first twin. Expand
The significance of the time interval in twin delivery
TLDR
The results indicate that obstetricians, according to the clinical conditions, should accomplish the birth of the second twin as soon as possible after theBirth of the first twin. Expand
[Delivery of the second twin].
TLDR
A retrospective cohort study evaluating the outcomes of 287 consecutive twin pregnancies with a cephalic-presenting twin delivered at a single U.S. institution finds no difference in the neonatal outcome variables they studied, in concert with a recent single-center cohort study from France. Expand
Occurrence and Predictors of Cesarean Delivery for the Second Twin After Vaginal Delivery of the First Twin
TLDR
Prediction of emergent cesarean for the second twin by clinical factors was stronger in term births than preterm births and in infants born to mothers with medical or labor and delivery complications. Expand
Twin Delivery and Neonatal and Infant Mortality: A Population‐Based Study
TLDR
It is suggested that cesarean delivery for twins with estimated fetal weights less than 1000 g together with a more liberal use of vaginal delivery for twin births would have a net effect of increasing perinatal survival while lowering the overall cesAREan delivery rate. Expand
[Effect of birth interval on the rate of cesarean section for the second twin after vaginal delivery of the first twin].
TLDR
No significant differences were seen for neonatal morbidity for all 197 vaginal delivered second twins with increasing interval and in this group the authors have seen a better fetal outcome. Expand
Combined Vaginal‐Cesarean Delivery of Twin Pregnancies
TLDR
There has been a significant increase in combined vaginal‐cesarean and elective cesarean deliveries among twin gestations, with a decrease in vaginal births. Expand
Interval between birth of the first and the second twin and its impact on second twin perinatal mortality
TLDR
The results of this study seem to indicate that with modern management of labor and delivery, as seen in Sweden since 1979, the interdelivery interval has little impact on second twin PNM. Expand
Delivery of the second twin: comparison of two approaches.
TLDR
The data suggest that an active approach diminishes the likelihood of cesarean delivery for the second twin, without increasing the neonatal risk. Expand
