Monofasic diastolic filling of the right ventricle; hallmark of diastolic function. Panel c: Myocardial severe interstitial edema with fiber dissociation and sporadic vacuolar myocyte degeneration of the twin A fetal heart. Panel d: Hypertrophic vacuolization and nuclear pleomorphism of extravillous throphoblast, with interstitial edema and areas of fibrinoid necrosis of placenta (✷). Panel e: Neonatal echocardiography of twin B. M-mode long axis of the left ventricle. Evidence of mild septal hypokinesia with an overall preserved global contractility
