Maternal Hypotension during Fetoscopic Surgery: Incidence and Its Impact on Fetal Survival Outcomes

Table 4

Fetal survival outcomes of patients with and without intraoperative hypotension. The acute survival rate of the recipient and donor twins was determined by ultrasound or fetal echocardiogram performed on days 3–5 after fetoscopic surgery. The survival rate at birth of the recipient twin and donor twins was defined as live birth at delivery.
