Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome
What is Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome?
Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS) affects approximately 15% of identical twins that share a placenta. The condition occurs when blood from one twin (commonly called “the donor”) is transfused into the other twin (commonly called “the recipient”) via blood vessels in the shared placenta. It can also occur in triplet or quadruplet pregnancies in which foetuses share a placenta.
Although it only affects a small number of pregnancies (approximately 2% of twin pregnancies), it is a potentially serious condition and can have life threatening effects on either one or both of the twins.In the normal situation, blood vessels on the surface of a shared placenta of identical monochorionic twins connect to one another. There is a balanced amount of blood that flows in both directions. If there is a disturbance of this balance with more blood flowing from one baby (the donor) to the other (the recipient), TTTS occurs.
