The application of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) termination procedures to complicated cases involving monochorionic twins offers the potential of a less invasive option when compared to endoscopic techniques. The purpose of this study was to compare outcomes between these two techniques.
A total of 149 cases were identified with procedures performed on 146. Indications for selective termination of one fetus were twin reversed arterial perfusion sequence in 53, severe twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome in 43, discordance for fetal anomalies in 26 and selective intrauterine growth restriction in 24. Eighty-eight cases were managed with bipolar cord coagulation (BCC) and 58 with RFA.
