Subchorionic Hematomas and Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes among Twin Pregnancies

By on July 22, 2020

Abstract

Subchorionic hematomas, or subchorionic hemorrhages, are common ultrasound findings in early pregnancy.   However, their significance is uncertain.  Some believe they increase the risk of many pregnancy complications, including pregnancy loss / miscarriage.  In prior studies we demonstrated that subchorionic hematoma does not appear to increase the risk adverse outcomes in singleton pregnancies.

In this study, we present similar results regarding twin pregnancies – subchorionic hematoma does not appear to increase the risk of adverse outcomes in twin pregnancies.
