There are plenty of outstanding ISUOG events for you to put in your calendar, such as ISUOG Fetal Anomalies 2019, First Trimester, and Urogynecology and pelvic floor ultrasound, the 15th ISUOG International Symposium, our next Basic Training course, and ISUOG2019. It's also your final opportunity to register to live stream the ISUOG Education Courses 'Multiple pregnancy' and 'Placental insufficiency' - so don't miss out.
The incidence of twin pregnancy is rising, due mainly to advanced maternal age and resultant widespread use of assisted reproductive techniques. It is associated with a high risk of perinatal mortality and morbidity, particularly in monochorionic pregnancy, with complications such as selective fetal growth restriction and twin–twin transfusion syndrome contributing to this risk. This new Virtual Issue from Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology presents a selection of recent papers reporting on screening, management and prevention of preterm birth in twin pregnancy. These papers are FREE to read for a limited period.
The February issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology has a special focus on twin pregnancy, including a series of papers on the management of monoamniotic twin pregnancy, with an accompanying Editorial addressing pitfalls in this area of research. Also included in this issue are studies on two-dimensional ultrasound for postmortem examination, the cost-effectiveness of first-trimester screening and early aspirin initiation for early-onset pre-eclampsia, and the association between pelvic floor muscle trauma and contraction in parous women.
