Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome: Part 1 of 2

Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS) can occur in monochorionic twin pregnancies when abnormal blood vessel connections form in their single shared placenta and allow blood to flow unevenly between the identical fetuses. Perinatologist and twin expert, Dr. Larry Rand, explains the clinical characteristics of TTTS, how it is diagnosed, the various stages of the condition and why it is so important to differentiate between those stages.

This video is part of a series of presentations shared with parents after they have received a diagnosis concerning their twin pregnancy. Presenting twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome in an accurate, thoughtful and direct manner, these videos are designed to take the mystery out of the diagnosis for parents, their families and friends.
