Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Monozygotic twins are, as recently described in this journal, subject to many complications (1) including the twin reverse arterial perfusion sequence (TRAP) which has an incidence between 0.3 and 1%. Arrested cardiac development within the abnormal twin and failure of the heart due to reverse perfusion by the co-twin through placental vascular anastomoses, have been proposed as underlying etiologies (2). We describe a case that demonstrates aspects of the evolution of TRAP. © 2012 The Authors Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica © 2012 Nordic Federation of Societies of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
