Lucknow: In what seems to be a major breakthrough after the separation of two conjoined twins via surgery, now their organs are developing normally. The fact has been confirmed by the detailed investigation conducted on Wednesday and Thursday. Both the children at KGMU got their report as normal.
Both are now at home healing. After a successful completion of the surgery, the leader of the team, who performed the surgery on these children, Prof. JD Rawat said all their organs are developing in a normal way. Hopefully, their life ahead will be like normal children.
The twins were born on November 19, 2019 at the house of a Kushinagar labourer. The two were joined from the stomach, while the other parts of the body were separate.
The KGMU team had done the surgery in November during COVID times and separated them. They were discharged after being put on ventilator for almost a week. Now they were investigated in detail by calling them for a followup. The leader of the team who performed the surgery, Prof. JD Rawat said that during investigation, it was found that all the internal organs of the children are developing in a normal way. They will be examined again after about three months.
KGMU medical experts say the children were conjoined twins. The stomach and chest were interlinked. A part of the liver was affixed. The rest of the organs were different. The chest bone was also cut. If both had one heart, only one could be saved, but in this case both had different hearts. There was a part associated with the liver, which was removed to split the two.
