Indian Doctors Separate Twins Joined In The Head In A 36 Hour Marathon Surgery


Doctors in India have successfully separated conjoined twin boys who were attached at the skull in a marathon surgical procedure that lasted more than 36 hours and involved 40 doctors.




The two-year-old twins, who suffered a rare condition occurring once in about 2.5 million births, underwent the operation at a government-run in New Delhi on Wednesday (Oct 25).



One of the surgeons involved said the most challenging aspect was repairing the holes left in the young boys' heads after they were separated. The next step will be reconstruction of their skulls," he added.


Conjoined siblings are identical twins who are born with their skin and internal organs fused together, according to the University of Maryland Medical Centre website. They develop from a single egg, which splits in the case of healthy twins, but not fully in the case of conjoined siblings. About half are stillborn, and the survival rate is between five and 25 percent.
