    About Our Services

  • Because of the progression of findings characteristic of twin-twin transfusion syndrome despite amnioreduction therapy, she was offered selective laser photocoagulation treatment.

    Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS)

  • Selective laser photocoagulation of placental communicating vessels

    Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS)

  • The family was counseled about management options that included selective laser photocoagulation therapy for selective bipolar umbilical cord cauterization given the high likelihood of death in the recipient fetus.

    Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS)

  • The only treatment that addresses the underlying cause of the disease and has been shown to reduce the neurologic morbidity of Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome is fetoscopic laser photocoagulation of communicating inter-twin vessels across the surface of the placenta.

    Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS)

  • While selective laser photocoagulation therapy could separate the vascular communications that linked the fates of the two fetuses should one twin die, such therapy would place the donor twin at increased risk for poor outcome due to placental insufficiency given that donor twins almost inevitably have a much smaller portion of placental mass than their larger, recipient co-twin.

  • An increasing body of evidence shows that MicroPulse laser treatments can induce a therapeutic response with no detectable tissue damage and with improved visual function when compared to conventional photocoagulation treatments.

  • MicroPulse is a patented laser technology pioneered by IRIDEX which enables tissue-sparing photocoagulation therapies to treat eye diseases.
