Fierling, R; Däster, C; Arlettaz, R (2015). Heteropagus twins: report of two cases. Cheseau-sur-Lausanne: Swiss Society of Neonatology/Schweizerischen Gesellschaft für Neonatologie.

Abstract

Heteropagus twins are an extremely rare form of asymmetrical
conjoined monochorial monoamniotic twins with an estimated incidence of less than one per one million live births (1). An often-used synonym is «parasitic twins». The term heteropagus describes twins in which one of them has a mostly intact body that is able to survive and which is referred to as «autosite», while the ounterpart, referred to as «parasite», is only rudimentarily developed being physically attached to and nourished by the other twin.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
