Vanishing Twin Syndrome Left Handed
Demise of one fetus: Vanishing twin syndrome is the demise of one twin sometime during the pregnancy. One study suggested it occurred about 20-30% of twin pregnancies. Most commonly it occurs early in the pregnancy and generally the remaining fetus has a good outcome. Its' occurrence later in pregnancy can be associated with adverse maternal and fetal outcomes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Vanishing twin syndrome lost at 7 weeks. What is the likelihood that remaining twin will have something wrong with it?
Hi, 11 weeks pregnant with dichorionic twins, my 2nd twin is near right cornual region, adj. Myometrial thickness 3.9mm, is it a serious condition?
Possibly.: Typically the pregnancy grows in the path of least resistance - i.e. Inside the uterus. Most likely everything will be fine; if you or your obstetrician are concerned about this, an MRI should help put everyone's mind at ease by imaging the entire pelvis and uterus in detail. Best of luck! ...Read more
Odds of having complications pregnant with twins? My dad is a fraternal twin and my boyfriends dad is a fraternal twin, are my chances high for twins?
Probably not: The fact that both are twins probably doesn't increase your chance of twins. In general spontaneous twin pregnancies are pretty safe. Just have a higher chance of a cesarean delivery.. ...Read more
Days/weeks.: Stillbirth (see picture) is very common. Of liveborns, 80% of affected infants die within the first month of life; only 5% survive the first six months. Severe intellectual disability, seizures, and failure to thrive are noticeable in survivors over 1 year of age. No interventions for fetal benefit are ethically justifiable during pregnancy (no cesarean section, no fetal monitoring indicated). ...Read more
I have a fraternal twin brother with microdeletion 22q11.2 (velocardiofacial syndrome). What are the chances my children will have the same disorder?
Minimal: These odd micro-deletion syndromes are thought to arise as new defects which could be dominantly passed. Unless you carry it, you won't pass it to your kids and they would have the same risk as the general population to acquire it (new). You might benefit from discussing any and all genetic risk issues from both sides of the family with a geneticist. ...Read more

None of the above: Down syndrome happens when an extra 21 chromosome is present in all the cells of the body. It happens before conception when the donor egg fails to shed one of its 21 chromosomes in the formation of the egg; the male 21 joins the female pair & creates an embryo with 3 number 21's. It has nothing to do with traits or mutations in the gene code. ...Read more

Yes: As a pediatric cardiologist, I have many patients who have hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Many are doing rather well, attending school. Obviously all do not survive, and some struggle with serious health issues and multiple medications. The "long" long term is not known at this time. Just over 20 years ago many doctors offered no surgery, and just hospice type care. We've come a long way. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How rare is it to have a simian crease (a single palmar crease) on both palms without having down syndrome?
Fairly common: A single sided simian crease is found in about 10% of the population, whereas having it on both palms is found in about 5%. When a condition is seen in this many people, it is considered somewhat common. Many more people who have a simian crease have normal chromosomes than have down syndrome. ...Read more
