Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Our objective was to determine the best method to approach a multifetal pregnancy reduction of a patient with a multiple pregnancy of grand order (12 fetuses). Transvaginal ultrasound-guided reduction was performed in three stages. Successful outcome was achieved. The patient delivered twins at 37 weeks' gestation. The published and unpublished literature is reviewed and discussed in the light of this case. Our conclusion is that a multifetal pregnancy reduction of grand order can be performed in stages to achieve the desired number of fetuses.
