Surgeons in Australia separate conjoined girls from Bhutan

Conjoined Bhutanese Twins Who Share Liver To Undergo Separation Surgery Conjoined twins to undergo life-changing separation surgery at Melbourne's Royal Children's Hospital

The girls were successfully separated after a six-hour operation at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne.

Dr. Karma Sherbub, Bhutan's only pediatrician, flew to Australia with the twins, and was in the operating room for their surgery.

Dr Crameri said if there were any unexpected problems during the operation, the hospital had all the resources and experts on hand that it would need.

"There weren't any things inside the girls' tummies that we weren't really prepared for", he told reporters.

"While it was all swimming next to one another, it wasn't connected in any major way, " he said.

They were brought to Australia with their mother Bhumchu Zangmo in October and have been staying at the Children First Foundation retreat in Kilmore.

It states that 18-member surgical team of RCH specialists will undertake a long, two-staged process to separate the sisters in the RCH's Theatre 6, the hospital's largest operating space.

Elizabeth Lodge, from the charity, said Ms Zangmo was feeling "a little bit scared" about the procedure, but had shown "extraordinary calmness" so far.

"Like any siblings, they're getting cranky, so mom's really looking forward to the operation happening sooner rather than later".

But, in another interview that year, Whitaker also said he felt there was a red line for the probe . I would like to get into two of the things that you reported today.

The twins were born in Bhutan, a tiny Asian kingdom of less than a million people, and were actually the first set of conjoined twins in the country's history.

The procedure, which required 20 doctors and nurses, divided their shared liver and reconstructed their abdomens.

The doctors planned to split the surgical team in half once the initial separation was complete.

They were separated after a marathon 27-hour surgery, despite doctors initially giving them only a 25% chance of making it. About 70% are female, and they are always identical twins.

The girls, Trishna and Krishna, who were joined at the head, underwent a life-saving 32-hour operation. "Conjoined twins may also share one or more internal organs", according to the Mayo Clinic.

Nima and Dawa face each other, and can not sit down together.

The pair were joined at the torso and shared a liver, but turned out not to share part of their bowel, as the doctors once believed. Chang and Eng both married and fathered a total of 21 children between them.

"We saw two young girls who were very ready for their surgery, who were able to cope very well with the surgery and are now in our recovery doing very well", he told reporters.
