Viznani gubbala, Kommuri Jeevitha

Abstract


BACKGROUND : The twin to twin transfusion syndrome is a serious complication of monochorionic twins. Where one twin blood transfused into other through arterio-arteriolar of placental vascular anastomosis.

CASE CHARACTERSTICS : A 22 years old lady with 32weeks period of twin gestation and previous history of cesarean section 2 years back was referred from area hospital to Konaseema institute of medical sciences(KIMS) with USG  report showing Twin to twin transfusion syndrome(TTTS).

 CONCLUSION : We propose that, it should be possible to predict the underlying placental         anatomy by frequent detailed ultrasound scanning including full biometry, as soon as   monochorionicity is established.
