Contemporary treatments for twin-twin transfusion syndrome

This review compared laser coagulation, amnioreduction, septostomy and foeticide for twin-twin transfusion syndrome. The authors concluded that laser coagulation appeared to reduce perinatal mortality and morbidity more than serial amnioreduction, but there were insufficient data to evaluate septostomy and selective foeticide. The authors' cautious conclusions appear to accurately reflect the evidence, which was from predominantly non-randomised observational studies.

Maternal complications of fetoscopic laser photocoagulation (FLP) for treatment of twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS)

AIMS: Fetoscopic laser photocoagulation (FLP) has become standard therapy for severe twin-twin transfusion syndrome. Data on adverse maternal events are rare. We performed a literature review to obtain data on maternal complications of FLP.

Recurrent twin-twin transfusion syndrome after selective fetoscopic laser photocoagulation: a systematic review of the literature

OBJECTIVES: Selective fetoscopic laser photocoagulation (SFLP) is now the treatment of choice for twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS). The incidence of recurrent TTTS following SFLP has been inconsistently reported across different studies. We performed a systematic review of TTTS recurrence following SFLP.

Cerebral injury and neurodevelopmental impairment after amnioreduction versus laser surgery in twin-twin transfusion syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the odds of severe cerebral injury and long-term neurodevelopmental impairment in monochorionic twins treated with amnioreduction versus laser surgery for twin-twin transfusion syndrome.

Influence of experience, case load, and stage distribution on outcome of endoscopic laser surgery for TTTS: a review

This review concluded that laser surgery for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome resulted in an average survival of at least one twin of 81.2% and of overall survival of 63.9%. There was no evidence of any impact on outcomes of high caseload, disease severity and improvements in technique. Data came largely from retrospective studies. The conclusions should be treated with caution.

Interventions for the treatment of twintwin transfusion syndrome

Limited evidence suggests the best way to improve survival without neurological impairment in children with twin‐to‐twin transfusion syndrome is to perform laser treatment to the placenta.

Multiple Pregnancy: The Management of Twin and Triplet Pregnancies in the Antenatal Period

This guideline contains recommendations specific to twin and triplet pregnancies and covers the following clinical areas: optimal methods to determine gestational age and chorionicity; maternal and fetal screening programmes to identify structural abnormalities, chromosomal abnormalities and feto-fetal transfusion syndrome (FFTS), and to detect intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR); the effectiveness of interventions to prevent spontaneous preterm birth; and routine (elective) antenatal corticosteroid prophylaxis for reducing perinatal morbidity. The guideline also advises how to give accurate, relevant and useful information to women with twin and triplet pregnancies and their families, and how best to support them.

Elective birth of women with an uncomplicated twin pregnancy from 37 weeks' gestation

The optimal timing of birth for women with a twin pregnancy is uncertain, with clinical support for both elective delivery at 37 weeks' gestation (either by induction of labour or caesarean birth), and for waiting for labour to start spontaneously (expectant management).

Hypertension in Pregnancy: The Management of Hypertensive Disorders During Pregnancy

This clinical guideline concerns the management of hypertensive disorders in pregnancy and their complications from preconception to the postnatal period. For the purpose of this guideline, ‘pregnancy’ includes the antenatal, intrapartum and postpartum (6 weeks after birth) periods. The guideline has been developed with the aim of providing guidance in the following areas: information and advice for women who have chronic hypertension and are pregnant or planning to become pregnant; information and advice for women who are pregnant and at increased risk of developing hypertensive disorders of pregnancy; management of pregnancy with chronic hypertension; management of pregnancy in women with gestational hypertension; management of pregnancy for women with pre-eclampsia before admission to critical care level 2 setting; management of pre-eclampsia and its complications in a critical care setting; information, advice and support for women and healthcare professionals after discharge to primary care following a pregnancy complicated by hypertension; care of the fetus during pregnancy complicated by a hypertensive disorder.

Neonatal Jaundice

Jaundice is one of the most common conditions requiring medical attention in newborn babies. Approximately 60% of term and 80% of preterm babies develop jaundice in the first week of life, and about 10% of breastfed babies are still jaundiced at 1 month of age. In most babies with jaundice thevre is no underlying disease, and this early jaundice (termed ‘physiological jaundice’) is generally harmless. However, there are pathological causes of jaundice in the newborn, which, although rare, need to be detected. Such pathological jaundice may co-exist with physiological jaundice.

Antenatal Care: Routine Care for the Healthy Pregnant Woman

The original antenatal care guideline was published by NICE in 2003. Since then a number of important pieces of evidence have become available, particularly concerning gestational diabetes, haemoglobinopathy and ultrasound, so that the update was initiated. This update has also provided an opportunity to look at a number of aspects of antenatal care: the development of a method to assess women for whom additional care is necessary (the ‘antenatal assessment tool’), information giving to women, lifestyle (vitamin D supplementation, alcohol consumption), screening for the baby (use of ultrasound for gestational age assessment and screening for fetal abnormalities, methods for determining normal fetal growth, placenta praevia), and screening for the mother (haemoglobinopathy screening, gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia and preterm labour, chlamydia).
