Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome

by Skupski Daniel W

This book Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome provides detailed information about the diagnosis and therapy of Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS). The information is presented so as to allow the reader a broader understanding of the lessons learned from the study of TTTS in the context of medical advances in general. The chapters are organized in a logical progression including summary information for ease of understanding, extensive use of figures, broad coverage of past, present and future important advances, and a global perspective on the disease from the point of conception to the long-term effects on the children born after suffering from TTTS. The newest techniques for diagnosis and therapy are reviewed in detail, including how to follow monochorionic pregnancies in the second trimester to establish an early diagnosis, laser therapy, the monitoring of pregnancies after therapy and the long-term follow-up of children born with this dreaded disease. Important information in each chapter is highlighted in tables and summary boxes. Figures are numerous and detailed to speed readers’ understanding.
