Her 8th week ultrasound scan revealed a dichorionic diamniotic twin gestation.
In April 2015 a case of dichorionic diamniotic twin delivery presented at Shifa International Hospital in a multigravida (G 6 P 3+2) mother.
Delivery for uncomplicated dichorionic twin pregnancies should be considered at 37 weeks' gestation, a week earlier than is generally recommended in the United States, according to a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies that reported rates of stillbirth and neonatal mortality at various gestational ages.
Results of a large, robust meta-analysis of 32 studies (including 35,171 women with uncomplicated twin gestations) indicated that 37 weeks' gestation be considered ideal timing in uncomplicated dichorionic twin pregnancies, and not before 36 weeks for monochorionic twin pregnancies, to minimize perinatal deaths.
Mirror-image trigger thumb in dichorionic identical twins.
Her first pregnancy at 2012 was diagnosed to be dichorionic twin pregnancy and her second pregnancy at 2014 was a singleton pregnancy.
Non-identical twins are dichorionic, diamniotic twins and the differences in their genetic makeup would be similar to siblings born as a result of pregnancies separated by time.
Increased perinatal mortality and morbidity in monochorionic versus dichorionic twin pregnancies: clinical implications of a large Dutch cohort study.
When ultrasonography reveals the absence of a "twin-peak sign" indicating a monochorionic placenta, the twins are most likely monozygotic; however, a dichorionic diamniotic (DCDA) [4] placenta--as evidenced by the presence of a twin-peak sign and the same sex for both fetuses--is observed in at least 40% of all twin pregnancies and is compatible with both monozygotic and dizygotic twins.
The inclusion criteria included singletons and dichorionic twins with severe fetal abnormalities at >24 weeks' gestation.
