Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The sonographic diagnosis of a twin pregnancy complicated by acardius anceps of one fetus, total placenta previa, uterine overdistension, and preterm labor is presented and management is discussed. Attempted selective fetocide is described, but was not successful. Clinical management of severe discordant sonographic dysmorphology is discussed, and diagnostic criteria for sonographic diagnosis of acardia are presented.
