Triplet & higher-order multiple pregnancies are well known to be associated with increased unfavorable outcomes. Study reviewed the perinatal outcomes in women among a triplet pregnancy who underwent fetal reduction versus expectant management at a university hospital in Hong Kong.
Result: The mean age of the mothers was 33.68±3.09 years. Around 33% of triplet pregnancies had ovulation induction and 77% of triplet pregnancies by IVF. The mean gestational age of the mother was 239±11.64 with range of 197 to 262 days. The miscarriage (pregnancy loss before 24 completed weeks) rate in our study was 3%. In our study it is found that delivery rate at ≤32 Weeks of gestation was 7.5%, delivery rate at ≤35 weeks was 56.7% & delivery rate at >35 weeks was 43.3%.
