Abstract

Multiple gestations account for 1-2% of all pregnancies but contribute disproportionately to the incidence of both perinatal loss and fetal structural abnormalities. Ultrasound examination provides essential information about screening for, and the management of, such defects, including accurate determination of chorionicity, assessment of risk, invasive testing and selective termination if appropriate.
