Figure 1. Management flow diagram in the present study of 83 MD-twin cases. FLP: fetoscopic laser photocoagulation, TTTS: twin-twin transfusion syndrome. Figure 2. Progression of MD-twin score in the 6 cases with poor outcome. Figure 3. (A) ROC curves obtained by the multivariate analysis for core model and their associating variables (BW, AF, delivery week). (B) Enlarged details in the gray-coated area in (A), specifying the corner of ROC curve for core model set at sensitivity of 50% and specificity of 98.7% (arrow). Figure 4. (A) Predictions of a poor prognosis in the present study of 83 MD-twin cases using the core model set. (B) Multivariate view separated by the AF discordance and the BW discordance variables. Note the 6 cases (Case A-F) with adverse outcome individually indicated in the graph.
