Fetal Care: Understanding and Managing Risks for Monochorionic Twins

UCSF experts share their approach to evaluating twins in utero, focused on ultrasound detection of those who share a placenta while developing in separate amniotic spaces. Radiologist Vickie A. Feldstein, MD, and perinatologist Nasim Sobhani, MD, provide anatomical keys to anticipating complications, such as twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. They also present survivorship data from the UCSF Fetal Treatment Center, reflecting the value of early referral for multidisciplinary care.
