Abstract

Selective laser photocoagulation of communicating vessels (SLPCV) is an application of minimally invasive endoscopic fetal surgery (i.e., surgical fetoscopy) performed for severe cases of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS), a complication of monochorionic twin pregnancies. Advances in ultrasound and endoscopy have aided the identification and treatment of this potentially lethal or fatal condition. Surgical fetoscopy, an innovation in the field of surgery and maternal-fetal medicine, benefits patients by reducing the morbidity and mortality associated with TTTS, with minimal risks to the mother.
