Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Three cases of acardius amorphus with twin reversed arterial perfusion (TRAP) sequences are reported and the histomorphological and clinical aspects are discussed. The patho-physiology of the twin pump is briefly described. Precise prenatal assessment of the morphology of the acardius is recommended for an accurate monitoring of the perfuser in order to plan proper fetal therapy and timing for delivery.
