Delayed cord clamping in newborn babies from twin pregnancy

A.M. Predescu (Măreșescu), M.I. Vlădăreanu, S. Vlădăreanu


Rezumat: Multiple pregnancies are unique situations in which obstetricians and neonatologists may hesitate in performing the delayed cord clamping (DCC). The delayed clamping of the umbilical cord appears to be beneficial for the term newborn and also for the premature ones. Studies have shown that the prematurely born twins who received DCC required less transfusions and treatment with surfactant for respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) compared to the newborns for whom the precocious clamping of the umbilical cord was performed. DCC is feasible and safe for the twin pregnancies with dichorionic twins. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommended (in 2020) the delayed umbilical cord clamping for at least 30-60 seconds after birth in vigorous term and preterm infants, the milking not being recommended, especially in very preterm babies (below 28 weeks).
Cuvinte cheie: delayed clamping, newborn, twin pregnancy.
