Although some epidemiological studies have reported that there was no difference in the risk of perinatal complications according to the birth order, recent studies have shown that the risk of perinatal mortality and neonatal morbidity was high in the second twin than the first twin, and the inter twin delivery interval have been suggested as an important risk factor associated with incidence of delivery related complications in second twins7-9.
