Nigerian Conjoined Twins Separated By Indian Doctors

The formerly conjoined twins are now healthy and happy after they were successfully separated in a marathon "nerve-wracking" operation in India by a team of 40 specialists. The one-year-old girls from Nigeria, sporting matching bright pink dresses, sat patiently on their parents' laps as doctors explained the separation last month during an 18-hour operation at a New Delhi hospital.
"Usually the twins are joined in the head or the upper body. It posed a huge challenge to our team of doctors," Jain said. Malama Badariyya Badaru, the mother of the twins, said she was overjoyed at finally being able to hold the girls in her arms "individually".
The single surgery was carried out in three stages, preparation, separation and then reconstruction of their shared organs which include the lower spine, lower intestinal and urinary tracts as well as Cores. "We carried out rehearsals using dummies. All tubes, wires, injections and drugs were colour-coded in pink or blue (for each girl) to avoid any mistake," he said. Jain said only 15 percent of all conjoined twins are born with this type of condition, known medically as pygopagus. Medical literature lists just 32 such cases, he said. Glory to God
