Study of Ventricular and Aortic Wall Movements in Monochorionic Twins

Lead Physician: Helena Gardiner, M.D.

The primary outcome measures are measurement and within-twin-pair comparison of left and right ventricular strain and umbilical cord coiling in uncomplicated MCDA pregnancies using off-line, non-Doppler speckle tracking techniques. The secondary objective is to compare these results with pregnancy events, specifically the development of TTTS and recognition of selective growth restriction. Patients with a monochorionic diamniotic pregnancies will be invited to take part in the study.
