In the present study 90 multiple pregnancies were examined. These were subdivided on the basis of the number of embryos involved (74 twins, 10 triplets, 6 quintuplets) and on whether they were followed at our clinic for the entire pregnancy or not. In each group we analysed certain variables, calculating the respective mean values and standard deviations. We used the ANOVA test to discriminate the eventual differences in the means of the variables analysed, operating a p < 0.05 significance value. In addition, significant differences were analysed by the test of Contrasts (Scheffe F-test). The concept that emerged from the data investigated is that careful management of these pregnancies, carried out in high-level structures, can reduce the incidence of complications on both the maternal and fetal side and thus prevent "minimal brain damage" in the newborn.
