Selective fetocide using US-guided cord occlusion or radiofrequency ablation has been described when there is a coexisting fetal anomaly, growth restriction, or a chromosomal abnormality in 1 twin (heterokaryotypia).
After that the operation becomes fetocide, and is meant to be carried out only in cases of serious handicap or if there is a serious threat to the mother's health.
