Monochorionic twin pregnancies can be associated with considerable morbidity and mortality, particularly, as this case describes, if associated with twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. This case gives insight into the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of twin-to-twin transfusion treatment, with particular attention to fetoscopic ablation of placental vessels, a technique which optimizes fetal survival whilst minimizing morbidity, and is the treatment of choice for advanced disease.
