Abstract

Cardiac dysfunction could be present in twins with anamnestic twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) (1). An 8-year-old monochorionic diamniotic twin pair with anamnestic TTTS was referred for echocardiographic examination. Twins presented prematurity at birth (donor twin: weight, 1,570 g; Apgar: 3-7-9; recipient twin: weight: 2,490 g; Apgar: 8-9-10).
