The aim of this study was to determine the effects of intrauterine environment on the magnitude of intrapair differences in six somatic traits of monozygotic (MZ) and dizygotic (DZ) twins (1,263 pairs; 424 MZ twins and 839 DZ twins). Differences in intrauterine environments of MZ twins enforced division of the research material into four groups: (1) MZ-MC-TTTS - MZ twins from monochorionic (MC) pregnancies with twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS), (2) MZ-MC (without TTTS)-MZ twins from MC pregnancies without TTTS, (3) MZ-DC-MZ twins from dichorionic (DC) pregnancies, and (4) DZ-DZ twins...

BACKGROUND: Twins, compared to singletons, have higher perinatal mortality and morbidity. The aim of this study was to describe the twinning rate, epidemiological variables and hospital outcome of twin deliveries and to find out ways of better management of twins in our part. METHODS: A retrospective evaluation of the outcome of 92 twin pregnancies during one year study period (1st January 2014 to 31st December 2014) was conducted at BPKIHS. Twins delivered within the institution were included but cases less than 28 weeks gestation were excluded...

REVIEW
Kathryn M Maselli, Andrea Badillo
Historically, the gold standard for the treatment of congenital malformations has been planned delivery at tertiary care center with attempted post-natal repair or amelioration of the lesion. Over the last few decades however, rapid advances in imaging and instrumentation technology combined with superior knowledge of fetal pathophysiology has led to the development of novel intrauterine interventions for most common fetal anomalies. Great success has already been seen the treatment of previous devastating anomalies such as myelomeningocele (MMC), congenital cystic malformations of the lung, twin-twin transfusion, and sacrococcygeal teratomas...

Pulmonary artery, and rarely aortic, calcifications have been reported in sporadic case reports in the recipient twin of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. This presentation is more likely to be secondary to the haemodynamic alterations in the recipient twin, but must be differentiated from idiopathic infantile arterial calcification as the clinical implications, treatment, and prognosis may be drastically different.

BACKGROUND: The rare M(k) M(k) phenotype is the result of a deletion of the coding regions of both GYPA and GYPB. Red blood cells (RBCs) of individuals homozygous for the rare M(k) gene lack all MNS blood group antigens and have no glycophorin A or glycophorin B. This phenotype is extremely rare and only four families have been reported. CASE REPORT: A 28-year-old woman was referred for assessment of recurrent early neonatal deaths. She was found to be apparently homozygous for M(k) ...

Each year over 90 million units of blood are transfused worldwide. Our dependence on this blood supply mandates optimized blood management and storage. During storage, red blood cells undergo degenerative processes resulting in altered metabolic characteristics which may make blood less viable for transfusion. However, not all stored blood spoils at the same rate, a difference that has been attributed to variable rates of energy usage and metabolism in red blood cells. Specific metabolite abundances are heritable traits; however, the link between heritability of energy metabolism and red blood cell storage profiles is unclear...

BACKGROUND: Monochorionic diamniotic (MCDA) twin pregnancies are associated with adverse perinatal outcome. Intertwin discordances at the time of nuchal translucency (NT) screening may have a value in the prediction of fetal loss or twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. We aimed to determine the ability of intertwin NT and crown rump length (CRL) discordances among MCDA twins to predict adverse outcomes. MATERIAL AND METHODS: All MCDA twins with a documented routine ultrasound at 11 to 13+6 weeks' gestation, and known pregnancy outcome between August 2003 and August 2012 were included...

INTRODUCTION: Twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) is the major cause for fetal demise in monochorionic diamniotic pregnancies. Estimated combined cardiac output (CCO) has not been studied in this setting. The primary aims of this study were to compare CCO in twin donor and recipient fetuses and assess differences in CCO before and after laser coagulation therapy. A secondary aim was to evaluate the relationship of CCO with perinatal mortality, defined as intrauterine or neonatal mortality (≤30 days of age) in fetuses that underwent laser coagulation therapy...

Circulating nucleic acids have revolutionized prenatal diagnosis in the last decade, allowing non-invasive screening for single gene or chromosomal defects using a single sample of maternal blood. In addition to DNAs, RNAs from the placenta are released into the maternal blood from early in pregnancy and may reflect changes in gene expression occurring within the placenta. Measuring circulating RNA may therefore provide insights into the placental transcriptome without the need for invasive testing. Combined with advances in next-generation sequencing and molecular analyses, it may be possible to measure circulating RNA to improve our understanding of placental pathology and develop novel non-invasive biomarkers for pregnancy complications and monitoring high-risk pregnancies...

OBJECTIVES: Amniopatch is a proposed treatment of iatrogenic preterm premature rupture of membranes (iPPROM). We studied characteristics associated with successful amniopatch treatment of iPPROM after fetoscopic laser surgery for twin-twin transfusion syndrome. METHODS: Patients with iPPROM within 15 days of laser surgery treated with an amniopatch were studied. Factors associated with amniopatch success (i.e. cessation of leakage with normalization of amniotic fluid volume) were tested univariately and in multivariate logistic regression models...

BACKGROUND: Acardiac monochorionic twins lack cardiac function but grow by passive perfusion of the pump twin's deoxygenated arterial blood through placental arterioarterial (AA) and venovenous (VV) anastomoses and by hypoxia-mediated neovascularization. Pump twins therefore must continuously increase their cardiac output which may cause heart failure. Our aims were: to adapt our twin-twin transfusion syndrome model for acardiac twin pregnancies, to simulate pump and acardiac twin development, and to examine the model for early prognostic markers of pump twin survival...

Monochorionic multiple pregnancy has a higher risk for obstetric complications, including those due to the development of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome and reversed arterial perfusion syndrome (TRAP sequence). The latter occurs in 0.1% of all monochorionic pregnancies. The basis for TRAP sequence is a relationship between arterial and venous anastomoses from the appropriate placental areas, causing a recipient fetus to develop at the expense of a donor fetus. The presence of abnormal anastomoses is considered to be a main cause of acardia...

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...
