Twin pregnancy: the role of ultrasound in management.
Ameri-can College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
The earlier age at delivery of multiple gestations is a reflection of the increased incidence of preterm labor and obstetric intervention for complications such as preeclampsia, abruptio placentae, fetal growth restriction, and increased risk for stillbirth that occurs as the number of fetuses increases [30-33]. Mongelli M, Wilcox M, Gardosi J.: Estimating the date of confinement: ultrasonographic biometery versus certain menstrual dates.
The tendency for multiple gestations to be delivered earlier than singleton pregnancies should not be interpreted that multiples should be assigned an earlier estimated due date.
Determining the Estimated Due Date The estimated due date (EDD or EDC) is the date that spontaneous onset of labor is expected to occur. Conceptional age, menstrual age, and ultrasound age: a second-trimester comparison of pregnancies of known conception date with pregnancies dated from the last menstrual period.
The accuracy of the ultrasound estimate of the gestational age varies according to the gestational age.
"Ultrasound measurement of the embryo or fetus in the first trimester (up to and including 13 6/7 weeks of gestation) is the most accurate method to establish or confirm gestational age" .
