Abstract

BARBA J, Susana  and  CARVAJAL C, Jorge. Pautas de manejo del embarazo múltiple complicado con la muerte fetal in útero de un gemelo. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2012, vol.77, n.2, pp. 159-168. ISSN 0717-7526.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262012000200014.

Twin pregnancy is associated with increased perinatal mortality and morbidity compared with singleton pregnancy. A serious complication in a twin pregnancy is the intrauterine fetal demise of one fetus; this situation involves a larger risk of morbidity and mortality for the surviving fetus and the pregnant woman. Based in the best available evidence we suggest a management guideline to optimize the outcomes of the surviving twin and the pregnant women.

Keywords : Twin pregnancy; single fetal demise; surviving fetus.
