INTRODUCTION: : Minimally invasive fetal therapeutic procedures reduce the morbidity and mortality in monochorionic (MC) twins and in fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). MC pregnancies share their blood systems due to communicating vessels over their single placenta and may develop specific complications: Twin-to-Twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS), Selective intrauterine growth restriction (sIUGR), Twin Anemia-Polycythemia Sequence (TAPS), Twin Reverse Arterial Perfusion Syndrome (TRAP) or anomalies in one...

Monochorionic twin pregnancies are at risk of unique complications due to placental sharing and vascular connections between placental territories assigned for each twin. Twin anemia-polycythemia sequence (TAPS) is an infrequent but potentially dangerous complication of abnormal placental vascular connections. TAPS occurs due to very-small-caliber (< 1 mm) abnormal placental vascular connections which lead to chronic anemia in the donor twin and polycythemia in the recipient twin. TAPS may occur spontaneously or following fetoscopic laser photocoagulation of communicating placental vessels for twin-twin transfusion syndrome...

INTRODUCTION/OBJECTIVES: Recent studies suggest redness (color) discordance of the placental basal plate may be a marker for twin anemia-polycythemia sequence (TAPS), a recently described complication of diamniotic-monochorionic twinning characterized by marked intertwin hemoglobin (Hb) discordance in the absence of oligohydramnios-polyhydramnios. In this study, we determined the clinicoplacental and choriovascular correlates of basal plate color discordance in monochorionic twin placentas, and assessed its value as postnatal indicator of TAPS...

Monochorionic twin pregnancies are at increased risk for adverse outcome compared to dichorionic twin pregnancies and singletons. Monochorionic-specific complications include twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS), twin anemia-polycythemia sequence, single intrauterine fetal demise and its consequences on the co-twin, and selective intrauterine growth restriction. Whereas the natural history of monochorionic-specific complications carries a high risk of fetal death or severe neurologic disability, a framework now exists, based on well-designed clinical trials, for optimal treatment of these entities...

OBJECTIVES: Optimal outcomes after fetoscopic laser surgery (FLS) for twin-twin transfusion (TTTS) depend on the successful completion of ablation of all placental anastomoses. Our objective was to determine the incidence and risk factors for the occurrence of recurrent TTTS (rTTTS) or twin anemia-polycythemia sequence (TAPS) after FLS, and focusing on the impact of different diameters of the cannula. METHODS: A secondary analysis of prospectively collected data of 666 consecutive patients undergoing laser surgery for TTTS from 2 centers was performed...

We report the case of severe retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in the donor twin with twin anemia-polycythemia sequence managed with the novel treatment of intrauterine blood transfusions. The fellow polycythemic twin was managed with intrauterine venesection and developed only mild ROP. Thus, despite intrauterine improvement of the twins' hemodynamic conditions, the risk of developing severe ROP remained in the donor twin.

The incidence of pregnancies with multiple gestational sacs has increased with the use of assisted reproductive technology because more than one embryo is frequently transferred. The splitting of one or more embryos further complicates the pregnancy. Some of these complications include intrauterine fetal death, growth restriction, discordant birth weight, and preterm delivery. Monozygotic twins suffer from a few unique complications including twin-twin transfusion syndrome, twin reversed arterial perfusion sequence, and twin anemia-polycythemia sequence...

Twin anemia-polycythemia sequence (TAPS) is characterized by a wide discrepancy of hemoglobin between two monochorionic fetuses without sign of twin oligo-polyhydramnios sequence. A primiparous woman with monochorionic diamniotic twin transferred for preterm labor. Ultrasonographic evaluation at 32+3 weeks of gestation revealed increased middle cerebral artery-peak systolic velocity (77.4 cm/sec, 1.69 multiples of median) in donor and decreased in recipient twin (36.4 cm/sec, 0.79 multiples of median), the twin was diagnosed with TAPS...

Twin anemia polycythemia sequence (TAPS) is defined by significant intertwin hemoglobin discordance without the amniotic fluid discordance that characterizes twin-twin-transfusion syndrome (TTTS) in monochorionic twin pregnancies. TAPS is an uncommon condition which can either occur spontaneously, or following fetoscopic laser ablation for TTTS. This complication is thought to result from chronic transfusion through very small placental anastomoses; however, the pathogenesis of TAPS remains unknown. Consequently, there is no consensus in the management of TAPS...
