Laser Ablation and Cord Coagulation in Twin-to- Twin transfusion Syndrome
The most common procedure to treat TTTS is reduction amniocentesis. This procedure involves draining the amniotic fluid from around the recipient twin. This procedure may improve circulation in the donor twin especially if the anastomosis or cross connection is superficial in the placenta and the TTTS is at a lower stage.
