Newly-opened CIMFH Brings Hope to Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome Babies
Last year, Kristi Morris and her twin daughters almost didn’t survive her pregnancy.
At 19 weeks, she was diagnosed with Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS), where one twin gets too much amniotic fluid, and the other doesn’t get enough.
Prior to the opening of Children's Hospital Colorado's new Colorado Institute for Maternal and Fetal Health (CIMFH), a family like Kristi’s had to leave the state to receive treatment for TTTS, a condition that still has an unknown cause.
"Without treatment, this is close to 95 percent fatal," said Dr. Timothy Crombleholme, Children's Colorado's surgeon-in-chief, director of the Colorado Fetal Care Center and director of the CIMFH.
Watch how our newly-opened CIMFH is helping save TTTS babies' lives.
