Abstract

Pseudoamniotic band formation is a rare complication of invasive in-utero interventions and occurs in 1.8-3.3% of cases of fetoscopic laser photocoagulation for twin to twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS). We report a case of successful release of pseudoamniotic bands that followed laser photocoagulation for twin to twin transfusion syndrome using a partial carbon dioxide uterine environment.
