  • [Title] [Maternal complications following endoscopic surgeries in fetal Medicine].
  • [Transliterated title] Complicações maternas decorrentes das cirurgias endoscópicas em Medicina fetal.
  • PURPOSE: To describe the maternal complications due to therapeutic endoscopic procedures in fetal Medicine performed at an university center in Brazil.
  • METHODS: Retrospective observational study including patients treated from April 2007 to May 2010 who underwent laser ablation of placental vessels (LAPV) for severe twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS); fetal tracheal occlusion (FETO) and endoscopic removal of tracheal balloon in cases of severe congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH); LAPV with or without bipolar coagulation of the umbilical cord in cases of twin reversed arterial perfusion (TRAP) sequence.
  • The main variables described for each disease/type of surgery were maternal complications and neonatal survival (discharge from nursery).
  • Among 30 interventions performed in cases of CDH, there was amniotic fluid leakage into the maternal peritoneal cavity in one patient (1/30=3.3%) and premature preterm rupture of membranes after three (3/30=30%) fetoscopies for removal of the tracheal balloon.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In agreement with the available data in literature, at our center, the benefits related to therapeutic endoscopic interventions for TTTS, CDH and TRAP sequence seem to overcome the risks of maternal complications, which were rarely considered severe.

  • Ballantyne's syndrome also known as Mirror syndrome is the association of fetal hydrops and maternal hydric retention.
  • The maternal condition is often misdiagnosed as preeclampsia.
  • We report two cases of Ballantyne syndrome associated with materno-fetal Parvovirus B19 infection.
  • In the first case, the syndrome occurred at 26GW in a context of premature rupture of membranes.
  • Parents and medical staff opted for termination of pregnancy because of the poor fetal prognosis.
  • Maternal symptoms regressed after delivery.
  • In the second case, the patient presented a Ballantyne's syndrome at 25GW.
  • Fetal hydrops of any etiology can be associated with this syndrome.
  • Specific treatment of the fetus can avoid maternal complication allowing continuation of the pregnancy.

  • Decreased fetal movement (DFM) perceived by pregnant women sometimes indicates imminent fetal jeopardy.
  • Male infants weighing 2060 g and 1578 g were delivered; hemoglobin was 20.7 versus 10.8 g/dL, respectively; cardiothoracic ratio was 70% versus 44%, respectively, indicating acute twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS).
  • In conclusion, maternal perception of DFM indicated imminent fetal death or jeopardy caused by acute TTTS, suggesting that education regarding DFM for women with twin pregnancy may be clinically important.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Mirror syndrome: a systematic review of fetal associated conditions, maternal presentation and perinatal outcome.
  • INTRODUCTION: Mirror syndrome, also referred to as Ballantyne's syndrome, is normally defined as the development of maternal edema in association with fetal hydrops.
  • The incidence of mirror syndrome is low and few cases have been published.
  • We describe a case report in association with fetal Ebstein anomaly and provide a systematic review on the fetal associated conditions, maternal presentation and perinatal outcome reported for mirror syndrome.
  • DATA SOURCES: A PubMed database search was done until December 2008 (English, French or German) without any restriction of publication date or journal, using the following key words: Ballantyne syndrome, Mirror syndrome, Triple edema, Pseudotoxemia, Maternal hydrops syndrome, Pregnancy toxemia, Acute second trimester gestosis, and Early onset preeclampsia.
  • Reported cases were considered eligible when fetal associated conditions, maternal symptoms and fetal outcome were clearly described.
  • Mirror syndrome was associated with rhesus isoimmunization (29%), twin-twin transfusion syndrome (18%), viral infection (16%) and fetal malformations, fetal or placental tumors (37.5%).
  • Maternal key signs were edema (80-100%), hypertension (57-78%) and proteinuria (20-56%).
  • Severe maternal complications including pulmonary edema occurred in 21.4%.
  • Maternal symptoms disappeared 4.8-13.5 days after delivery.
  • DISCUSSION: Mirror syndrome is associated with a substantial increase in fetal mortality and maternal morbidity.

  • [Title] Maternal plasma and amniotic fluid angiogenic factors and their receptors in monochorionic twin pregnancies complicated by twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.
  • OBJECTIVE: Angiogenic factors play a role in human placentation and may be aberrant in severe twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS).
  • The aim of this study was to investigate the maternal plasma and amniotic fluid angiogenic factor and receptor concentrations in twin pregnancies complicated by TTTS and to evaluate the effects of fetoscopic laser ablation.
  • Circulating angiogenic factors and their receptors were measured in the maternal plasma and the recipient twin's amniotic fluid by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and/or FAST Quant human angiogenesis array.
  • This was independent of fetal size, amniotic fluid volumes or the number of apparent placental arteriovenous anastomoses.
  • In TTTS pregnancies, amniotic fluid VEGF-C, VEGF-A, Ang-1 and the sVEGFR-1/PlGF ratio were increased compared to paired maternal plasma concentrations (P < 0.0001) while amniotic fluid concentrations of PlGF, Ang-2 and soluble tyrosine kinase with immunoglobulin-like/epidermal growth factor-like domains 2 (sTie-2) were significantly lower than plasma concentrations (P < 0.0001).
  • No significant association between maternal plasma and amniotic fluid concentrations of angiogenic factors was noted.
  • CONCLUSION: Maternal angiogenic activity is decreased in severe TTTS, with an increased sVEGFR-1/PlGF ratio and concentrations of Ang-2 and VEGF-D in the maternal plasma compared to uncomplicated MC twin pregnancies.
  • Maternal circulating PlGF concentrations decrease and the sVEGFR-1/PlGF ratio increases transiently in response to fetoscopic laser ablation, but in general the angiogenic factor and receptor concentrations studied are altered little by this therapy.

  • [Title] 'Intellectual Products' associated with 'Transfusion History': Top Publications.
  • [Transliterated title]
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'Intellectual Product' for 'transfusion history'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Intellectual Product'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.
  • Results: Group one includes 13 publications, and group two 5475 publications.
  • Here are the top 7.

  • [Title] Feto-fetal transfusion syndrome in monochorionic quadruplets.
  • BACKGROUND: Endoscopic laser ablation of placental vessels is now the preferred treatment for severe feto-fetal transfusion syndrome in twin gestations, and has been well-documented in triplet gestations as well.
  • CASE: Stage IV feto-fetal transfusion syndrome was diagnosed at 20.3 weeks of gestation between two of a set of monochorionic, tetramniotic quadruplets.
  • Feto-fetal transfusion recurred at 22 weeks between the initial donor and the two previously unaffected fetuses.
  • CONCLUSION: Treatment of feto-fetal transfusion syndrome in higher-order gestations is challenging because of the increased pregnancy risks, the difficult angioarchitecture and the risk of recurrence.

  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of maternal nifedipine on fetal survival when started 24-48 hours before selective fetoscopic laser photocoagulation (SFLP).
  • STUDY DESIGN: We conducted a case control study of consecutive cases of twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) in which TTTS cardiomyopathy was treated with maternal nifedipine 24-48 hours before SFLP, compared with gestational age and stage-matched control cases.
  • There was a significant increase in overall fetal survival in nifedipine-treated cases compared with control cases (237/284 [83%] vs 232/308 [75%]; P = .015).
  • CONCLUSION: Maternal nifedipine is associated with improved recipient survival in TTTS that undergoes SFLP.
  • This is the first study to suggest a benefit of adjunctive maternal medical therapy in patients with TTTS who undergo SFLP.

  • OBJECTIVE: To report the incidence of fetal and maternal complications after selective fetoscopic laser surgery for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS).
  • Fetal complications (double and single intrauterine fetal death, recurrence of TTTS, twin anemia-polycythemia sequence (TAPS), reversal of TTTS, cerebral lesions in one twin) and maternal complications were recorded, and retrospectively analyzed.
  • Double and single fetal death occurred overall in 7.3 and 36.0% of cases, respectively.
  • Eighteen cases (12.0%) of fetal complications had a second procedure (6 repeat laser, 4 serial amnioreduction, 8 bipolar cord coagulation).
  • Major maternal complications occurred in 9 cases (6.0%), 3 of which required admission to intensive care unit.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Fetal complications are common after fetoscopic laser surgery.

  • OBJECTIVE: We sought to assess fetal cardiac function in monochorionic twins before and after therapy for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) and compare it with control subjects.
  • STUDY DESIGN: We conducted prospective longitudinal assessment of fetal cardiac function in cases undergoing curative fetal therapy for TTTS (n = 39) until 4 weeks postoperatively and in uncomplicated monochorionic twins (n = 23).
  • Fetal cardiac function was assessed by the left and right ventricular myocardial performance index, atrioventricular valve flow pattern, ductus venosus a-wave, and umbilical vein pulsations.
  • Fetal cardiac function was grossly abnormal in recipient twins of TTTS when compared with control subjects (P < .001 for all indices) but normalized by 4 weeks postoperatively.

  • [Title] Evidence to inform decisions about maternal-fetal surgery: technical brief.
  • OBJECTIVE: To summarize the state of research in maternal-fetal surgery regarding the surgical repair of abnormalities in fetuses in the womb.
  • DATA SOURCES: We searched MEDLINE from 1980 to 2010 for studies of maternal-fetal surgery for the following conditions: twin-twin transfusion syndrome, obstructive uropathy, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, myelomeningocele, thoracic lesions, cardiac malformations, and sacrococcygeal teratoma.
  • We compiled information about how fetal diagnoses were defined, maternal inclusion criteria, type of surgery, study design, country, setting, comparators used, length of follow-up, outcomes measured, and adverse events.
  • Twin-twin transfusion is the most studied condition, with 84 studies including 2,532 pregnancies.
  • Maternal outcome data were rare.
  • CONCLUSION: Although developing rapidly, maternal-fetal surgery research has yet to achieve the typical quality of studies and aggregate strength of evidence needed to optimally inform care.

  • [Title] Maternal cell-free messenger RNA in twin pregnancies: the effects of chorionicity and severe twin to twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS).
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of chorionicity and severe twin to twin transfusion (TTTS) on maternal circulating cell-free messenger RNA (cf-mRNA).
  • SETTING: A UK tertiary referral Fetal Medicine Center.
  • METHODS: Maternal cf-mRNA encoding glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 1(VEGFR-1(Flt-1)), vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A), Endoglin, placental growth factor (PlGF), tyrosine kinase with immunoglobulin-like and EGF-like domains 1 (Tie-1), angiopoietin 1 (Ang-1) and angiopoietin 2 (Ang-2) were measured by a quantitative two-step real-time PCR assay after extraction from maternal plasma.
  • CONCLUSION: Maternal cf-mRNA could be reliably detected for GAPDH, PlGF, VEGF-A, Endoglin, Ang-1 and Ang-2 in twin pregnancies and a significant difference was demonstrated in VEGF-A, Endoglin and Ang-2 between uncomplicated twins and MC twin pregnancies complicated by TTTS.
  • If such alterations in maternal cf-mRNA precede the onset of clinically apparent disease, this may be used as an adjuvant blood test to complement ultrasound screening.

  • [Title] Prenatal management and perinatal outcome in giant placental chorioangioma complicated with hydrops fetalis, fetal anemia and maternal mirror syndrome.
  • BACKGROUND: Giant placental chorioangiomas have been associated with a number of severe fetal complications and high perinatal mortality.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of giant chorioangioma with fetal hydrops, additionally complicated by severe anemia, mild cardiomegaly with hyperdinamic heart circulation and maternal mirror syndrome.
  • Intrauterine blood transfusion and amniodrainage was performed at 29 weeks.
  • Worsening of the fetal and maternal condition prompted us to proceed with delivery at 29 + 5 weeks.
  • Maternal course was favourable, mirror syndrome resolved in the second day and the patient was discharged four days following delivery.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In the case described here, fetal condition got worse despite of the anemia correction and amniodrainage.
  • Our outcome raises the issue whether additional intrauterine clinical intervention, as intersticial laser, should have been performed to stop further deterioration of the fetal condition when progressive severe hydrops develops.

  • [Title] Sonographic findings in severe fetomaternal transfusion.
  • Fetomaternal hemorrhage (FMH) or fetomaternal transfusion syndrome is the leakage of fetal red blood cells into the maternal circulation.
  • Massive FMH can cause substantial fetal morbidity and mortality.
  • Sonographic evidence of severe FMH syndrome includes fetal hydrops and other fetal anemia-related findings.
  • The peak systolic velocity in the middle cerebral artery has extensively been used for the prediction of fetal anemia and for the timing of the first intrauterine intravascular transfusion (IIVT).
  • We present a case of severe FMH syndrome that was diagnosed during the 24th week of pregnancy.
  • The actual increase in the fetal Hb after each transfusion was much lower than the expected.
  • The management of fetal anemia caused by severe FMH is difficult, and the anemic fetuses do not respond well to serial IIVTs as the transfer of blood to the maternal circulation continues.

  • [Title] Discordant blood chimerism in dizygotic monochorionic laser-treated twin-twin transfusion syndrome.
  • BACKGROUND: Twin-twin transfusion syndrome occurs in 10% of monozygotic monochorionic twin gestations and results from an unbalanced exchange of blood from the donor to the recipient fetus through placental anastomoses.
  • CASE: We present a case of twin-twin transfusion syndrome with differing fetal sex treated with in utero laser surgery.
  • CONCLUSION: Despite in utero separation of the fetal circulations remote from delivery, hematologic chimerism persisted after birth.
  • We speculate that the greater degree of blood chimerism in the recipient compared with the donor was related to the pathophysiology of twin-twin transfusion syndrome before laser surgery.

  • OBJECTIVE: To examine and to compare postpartum maternal and neonatal complications and morbidities in women with HELLP syndrome (HELLP group) and women with severe preeclampsia without HELLP syndrome (severe preeclamptic group).
  • METHODS: In this retrospective study, 111 patients in the HELLP group were matched with 467 patients in the severe preeclamptic group according to maternal and neonatal complications and morbidities.
  • RESULTS: The rate of transfusion of blood products and acute renal failure was significantly greater in women with HELLP syndrome.
  • One maternal mortality (0.9 % ) was found in women withHELLP syndrome, and no maternal mortality in women in severe preeclamptic group a.
  • It was found that HELLP syndrome cases had significantly lower gestational age and fetal bodyweight.
  • The simultaneous presence of HELLP syndrome and preeclampsia, along with oliguria, ascites, thrombocytopenia, elevated liver enzymes and caesarean delivery, was associated with post-partum complications.
  • CONCLUSION: This study shows that maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality are increased in pregnancies complicated by severe preeclampsia with HELLP syndrome.

  • [Title] Results of laser therapy in twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome: our experience.
  • OBJECTIVE: The authors of this paper present the results of laser treatment in twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.
  • The incidence of preterm rupture of membranes (4 cases - 4.3%), dual intrauterine fetal demise (7 cases - 7.4%) and miscarriage or delivery (8 cases - 8.5%) during the first week after surgery were the main reasons of pregnancy loss in the analyzed group.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite a lower incidence of dual neonatal survivals than in other series, the results of the first years of experience with laser treatment of twin-twin transfusion syndrome are encouraging, and prompt us to improve our surgical skills to achieve better outcomes.

  • [Title] Suspected twin-twin transfusion syndrome: how often is the diagnosis correct and referral timely?
  • OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to describe a single center's experience with referrals suspected to have twin-twin transfusion syndrome.
  • METHODS: A retrospective review was performed for patients with suspected twin-twin transfusion syndrome referred to a fetal treatment center between November 1, 2006, and June 1, 2010.
  • RESULTS: Of the 324 patients referred for twin-twin transfusion syndrome, the diagnosis was confirmed in 249 (77%): Quintero stage I in 28 (11%), stage II in 50 (20%), stage III in 150 (60%), stage IV in 15 (6%), and stage V in 6 (2%).
  • The other 75 patients who were referred for suspected twin-twin transfusion syndrome had a diagnosis of either a discordant amniotic fluid volume that did not meet the criteria for Quintero stage I twin-twin transfusion syndrome (56%) or selective intrauterine growth restriction (44%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest that patients with confirmed twin-twin transfusion syndrome are referred with advanced stages of disease (69% stages III-V), with 59% of referrals made after 20 weeks' gestation.

  • [Title] [Fetoscopic guided laser occlusion for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome in 33 cases].
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical effect of fetoscopic laser occlusion of chorioangiopagous vessels (FLOC) for monochorionic diamniotic twins (MCDA) pregnancies complicated with twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome(TTTS).
  • METHODS: The clinical data of 33 consecutive cases of TTTS from Mainland China, who had FLOC in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of Prince of Wales Hospital (The Chinese University of Hong Kong) from November 2003 to December 2010, were reviewed and analyzed for peri-operative complications, perinatal outcomes and fetal survival rate.
  • (1) Pregnancy characteristics: the mean maternal age was 30; the median gestational age at FLOC was 23(+4) weeks; according to the Quintero staging system, 3 cases were Quintero staging I, 14 cases were Quintero staging II, 7 cases were Quintero staging III and 9 cases were Quintero staging IV.
  • For the 3 stage I cases, FLOC was performed for severe maternal symptoms of polyhyramnios or severe fetal cardiac dysfunction. (2) COMPLICATIONS: intraoperative complications occurred in 5 patients including four uterine bleedings at the puncture site, one placental vascular anastomosis bleeding.
  • Postoperative complications occurred in 6 patients including 2 abortions and 1 intrauterine death within one week after operation, 2 abortions and 1 amniotic band syndrome occurred from two to four weeks after operation. (3) Perinatal outcome and fetal survival rate: the median interval of 33 patients between FLOC and delivery was 9(+4) weeks; the median gestational age at delivery was 31(+6) weeks; the gestation at delivery was less than 24 weeks in 6% (2/33), 24 to 28 weeks in 21% (7/33), 28 to 32 weeks in 18% (6/33), 32 to 37 weeks in 55% (18/33).

  • OBJECTIVE: To determine preoperative predictive factors for donor and recipient death after laser ablation of placental vessels in twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.
  • STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of North American Fetal Therapy Network center laser procedures, 2002-2009.
  • Factors significantly associated with donor fetal death were low donor estimated fetal weight (odds ratio [OR], 0.69; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.55-0.87) and reversed end diastolic velocity in the umbilical artery (OR, 4.0; 95% CI, 1.54-10.2); for recipient fetal death-low recipient estimated fetal weight (OR, 0.65; 95% CI, 0.44-0.95), recipient reversed "a" wave in the ductus venosus (OR, 2.39; 95% CI, 1.27-4.51) and hydrops (OR, 3.7; 95% CI, 1.1-12.7); for recipient neonatal death-low donor estimated fetal weight (OR, 0.54; 95% CI, 0.30-0.95), high recipient estimated fetal weight (OR, 1.55; 95% CI, 1.06-2.26) and recipient reversed end diastolic velocity in the umbilical artery (OR, 7.8; 95% CI, 1.03-59.3).
  • CONCLUSION: Preoperative findings predict fetal and neonatal demise in twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome treated with laser therapy.

  • [Title] Factors affecting maternal and perinatal outcomes in HELLP syndrome: evaluation of 126 cases.
  • OBJECTIVES: To ascertain the characteristics, clinical features, and maternal fetal outcome in HELLP (hemolysis elevated liver enzymes, low platelets) syndrome at a tertiary referral center.
  • RESULTS: Of all deliveries 0.9% were complicated by HELLP syndrome.
  • Of the cases with HELLP syndrome 79 (62.6%) had preeclampsia, 28 (22.2%) had eclampsia and 19 (15.2%) had a diagnosis of HELLP syndrome.
  • Thirty-one (24.6%) cases were nullipara and 95 (75.4%) multipara; of which 32 women (25.4%) were in Class I, and 94 (74.6 %) in Class II of complete HELLP syndrome.
  • Magnesium sulphate to prevent convulsions and corticosteroids (12 mg betametazone) to enhance fetal lung maturity were administered.
  • Maternal mortality occurred in ten cases (7.93%).
  • CONCLUSION: HELLP syndrome is a pathology associated with a high incidence of maternal and perinatal complications.
  • Laboratory parameters in cases with HELLP syndrome are not efficient in detecting perinatal results, but can be used as risk denominators in evaluating maternal complications.
  • Therefore, for patients with HELLP syndrome, standard antenatal follow-up protocols should be applied in order to obtain early diagnosis and improve the speed of transfer to obstetric departments with expertise in this field.

  • [Title] The pediatric surgeons' contribution to in utero treatment of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the outcome of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) treated using a combination of endoscopic fetal surgery-specific techniques and surgical restraint.
  • The best treatment option is obliteration of the intertwin placental anastomoses, but fetal surgery carries significant maternal and fetal risks.
  • METHODS: We developed a minimally invasive approach to fetal surgery, a unique membrane sealing technique and a conservative algorithm that reserves intervention for severe TTTS.
  • RESULTS: Ninety-eight cases of TTTS were managed in a pediatric surgery/maternal-fetal medicine collaborative Fetal Treatment Program-39 were observed (40%) and 59 underwent LASER (60%).
  • Applying fetal surgery-specific endoscopic techniques, including port-site sealing, reduces postoperative complications.
