Fertility Treatment Twins More at Risk for Hospitalizations

Researchers analyzed outcomes and hospital admissions for all twins born in Western Australia between 1994 and 2000.

"We found that twins conceived following ART treatment had a greater risk of adverse perinatal outcome, including preterm birth, low birth weight and death, compared with spontaneously conceived twins of unlike sex [ULS SC].

ART twins were four times more likely to be admitted to neonatal intensive care than ULS SC twins, and were more likely to be admitted to hospital during the first three years of their life," Hansen said.

"After adjusting for confounding factors such as year of birth, maternal age, parity and so on, ART twins still had a nearly two-thirds higher risk of being admitted to neonatal intensive care, and a higher risk of being admitted to hospital in their first three years of life, although this was only statistically significant in their second year, when their risk was nearly two-thirds higher," she said.
