Abstract

Twin pregnancy is one of the most important conditions associated with increased perinatal mortality and morbidity. The consequences of twin pregnancy on the mother have not been explored in great detail. The aim of this study was to analyze the population-based data from the United States and delineate the various conditions of twin pregnancies which predispose to maternal mortality. Results of this study show that multiple pregnancy is strongly associated with maternal mortality and requires further analysis in order to prepare appropriate therapeutic and prophylactic protocols.
