Raipur doctors separate conjoined twins

Doctors of a Raipur hospital on Tuesday successfully separated 10-month-old conjoined twins after a four-hour long surgery.

Raipur, May 29 : Doctors of a Raipur hospital on Tuesday successfully separated 10-month-old conjoined twins after a four-hour long surgery.

The twins were joined to each other from chest to stomach. The liver of one was joined to the other's pericardium.

Ram and Laxman, the conjoined twins, had been under the supervision of doctors at the Ambedkar Hospital for the past ten months.

"It took us a total of four hours to perform the surgery. We had been studying this case for the past one-month and the operation went according to our plans. It was perfectly investigated by our doctors. We were aware what we were going to do," said Doctor A.K. Sharma, Head of Surgery at the hospital.

"The doctor is like god and he took care of food and lodging and everything. They should also be given help in education," said Premvati Kole, mother of the conjoined twins.

In July 2003, a Singapore hospital conducted an unprecedented operation to separate 29-year-old Iranian conjoined twins, Ladan and Laleh Bijani, who were joined at the head. The sisters, both law graduates, were separated but died 90 minutes apart from massive blood loss.
