Intestinal complications after antenatal fetoscopic laser ablation in twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome



Intestinal complications after antenatal fetoscopic laser ablation in twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome



Journal of Pediatric Surgery 45(1): E5-E8



Twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) occurs in 9% of monochorionic twin pregnancies. An imbalanced blood flow across placental vascular communications produces a hypovolemic condition in the donor fetus and hypervolemia in the recipient fetus, leading to a variety of postnatal complications. We report 3 cases of intestinal injury in TTTS after fetoscopic laser ablation of the communicating vessels: 2 cases of intestinal atresia, and 1 case of necrotizing enterocolitis of 1 twin. Intestinal ischemic diseases have been reported after prenatal laser treatment in TTTS; with this report, we add 3 more cases.
