Author(s): Radhika Bajpai and Gargi Sharma
Abstract: Prematurity is a known complication associated with multiple pregnancy. Fetal reduction has emerged as a promising option to reduce the complications associated with multiple pregnancies and hence giving couple a chance to parent one or two healthy babies. But fetal reduction is not totally free of risks. We present a case of dichorionic triamniotic triplet pregnancy conceived following in-vitro fertilization (IVF) managed with fetal reduction of monochorionic pair followed by spontaneous expulsion of reduced twin and successful delayed interval delivery of the healthy fetus after a latent period of 31 days.
