Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) is a leading complication following fetoscop ic laser coagulation (FLC) for twin-twi n transfusion syndrome (TTTS). Our primary objective was to describe the impact of improvements in surgical technique on survival and rate of PPROM over time .. The secondary objective was to assess potential risk factors for PPROM.
