Тwin reversed arterial perfusion (TRAP) sequence is a rare complication in monochorionic twin pregnancy. It is the most serious type of transfusion syndrome (ТТТS). One twin has serious malformations, and due to the fact that the heart is almost always missing, it is often called acardiacus. TRAP sequence is present in less than 1% of monochorionic pregnancies, while the incidence compared to normal pregnancies is one in 35,000 pregnancies. This paper presents the diagnostics, evaluation, and completion of pregnancy in a primipara with twin pregnancy complicated by the ТRAP syndrome.
