Ten-month-old Conjoined Baby Girls Survive World-First Successful Operation to separate them


World-first successful surgery to separate conjoined twins who were connected at the chest and abdomen was recorded at Texas US.
Knatalye Hope and Adeline Faith Mata were born in Texas last April and were welcomed by parents Elysse and John Eric.
The couple, from Lubbock, were told that their twin girls would be conjoined and when they were born it was found their shared the same chest wall, lungs, pericardial sac (the lining of the heart), diaphragm, liver, intestines, colon and pelvis.
Earlier this month, a team of more than 26 clinicians, including 12 surgeons, six anesthesiologists and eight surgical nurses at the Texas Children's Hospital operated to separate the 10-month-olds.
The 26-hour surgery was the first time twins conjoined at the chest and abdomen in this way had been separated successfully.
