Chorionicity was classified as: dichorionic diamniotic (DCDA), monochorionic diamniotic (MCDA) and monochorionic monoamniotic (MCMA).
When ultrasonography reveals the absence of a "twin-peak sign" indicating a monochorionic placenta, the twins are most likely monozygotic; however, a dichorionic diamniotic (DCDA) [4] placenta--as evidenced by the presence of a twin-peak sign and the same sex for both fetuses--is observed in at least 40% of all twin pregnancies and is compatible with both monozygotic and dizygotic twins.
As we know, twin pregnancies can present in a two-placenta double-membrane sac (dichorionic diamniotic), in a single-placenta double-membrane sac (monochorionic diamniotic), or in some version thereof.
Cases of both monochorionic diamniotic and dichorionic diamniotic twin pregnancies were included.
Chorionicity is best seen at the 11-14 weeks scan during which time the dichorionic diamniotic pregnancy shows a twin peak sign (lambda sign).
