In this video, the specialists at Children’s Hospital Colorado explains what Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS) is, the causes, stages and treatment of this syndrome. If left untreated, TTTS can cause significant problems for both twins, yet with a minimally invasive corrective surgery using advanced laser technology, the blood exchange between twins can be stopped and a healthy pregnancy can continue. Watch more to learn about TTTS and some of the most advanced imaging capabilities in the country.

The disorder of identical twin pregnancies happens when the twins share, or transfuse, blood unequally through the shared blood vessel connections within their placenta. This results in one twin donating more blood to the other, causing problems in both twins. While the exact cause of this disorder is not completely understood, it is known that it develops in the second trimester. There are 4 stages of this disorder, and while it can resolve itself during the first stage, if it progresses and remains untreated, TTTS can be fatal. With a minimally invasive corrective surgery using advanced laser technology, the blood exchange between twins can be stopped and a healthy pregnancy can continue.
