Abstract

Selective reduction in cases of multiple fetuses is used more often nowadays due to the increased number of multiple pregnancies resulting from assisted reproduction. In this retrospective study, we investigated whether twinpregnancies derived from fetal reduction carry a higher obstetric and perinatal risk compared to standard twin pregnancies. We found that the rate ofmiscarriage was 10.6% in the reduction group (n = 158) compared to 9.5% inthe controls (n = 135), Mean gestational age at delivery was 35.7 weeks inthe reduction group versus 35.1 weeks in the control group, Mean neonatal weight at birth was 2.260 g (800-3.750 g) in the reduction group compared to 2.240 g (540-3.360 g) in controls. Perinatal mortality rate was 49.3 parts per thousand after reduction and 42.0 parts per thousand in the control group. There was no statistically significant difference in any of the aboveparameters. Therefore, multifetal pregnancy reduction to twins does not appear to increase obstetric or perinatal risks.
