    Abstract

    The course of gestation and labor and the outcome of 31 triplet pregnancies were analyzed. Early diagnosis is very important for improving the rate of fetal salvage in multiple pregnancy. The outcome of triplet pregnancies was better in the group of patients with induced ovulation than in the group with spontaneous ovulation. The most frequent antenatal complications were preterm labor (97%), pregnancyinduced hypertension (46%), and anemia (20%). In this series the favorable results were due to earlier diagnosis, prolonged hospitalization, and planned delivery, usually by cesarean section.
