Example text

Since long-term morbidity, family implications and health economic costs are increased in children of multiple gestations, the number of infants born as multiples should be considered as the preferable outcome measure16, 17. 9% for quadruplets. In 13 of the 18 countries around 40% of the IVF/ICSI children were born as twins and in 8 European countries nearly 10% of the IVF/ICSI children were born as triplets13. Compared with data from the corresponding ESHRE report from 1997, the incidence of multiple deliveries remained fairly unchanged from 1997 to 1999, apart from a marginal decrease in the incidence of triplets and a minor increase in the incidence of singletons and twins.

There are two major types of placenta: MC and dichorionic (DC), depending on the histological composition of the dividing membrane. In MC placentas, the septum consists of two layers of amnion, while DC placental septa consist of two layers of amnion and two layers of chorion. If the dividing membrane is absent, the condition is described as a monoamniotic (MA), MC twin gestation. DC placentas are found in about 80% of twin gestations and are associated with either DZ or MZ twins. DC placentas may be separate or fused.

4% were spontaneously conceived17. In the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium, a survey in 1999 revealed that in vitro techniques contributed to 26% of the twin deliveries and that 14% were the result of ovarian stimulation with or without IUI24. As previously mentioned, the contribution of ovarian stimulation to the iatrogenic triplet rate in Denmark in 2002 was 48%. Estimation of the contribution of ovarian stimulation to multiple gestations in the USA revealed that approximately 40% of all iatrogenic multiple gestations were caused by ovarian stimulation and 40% by in vitro techniques25.
