Method: Retrospective analysis of 18 cases treated in Clinica Alemana, between 2005 and 2008. Results: 72.8% of the pregnancies had at least one survivor at neonatal discharge. No case needed a second fetoscopy. There was no rupture of the membranes in patients without symptoms before surgery. There were no neurological sequels in survivors. Conclusions: The maternal and perinatal outcome is similar to international series and demonstrates feasibility in our country by experienced operators.
