The Australian surgeons have successfully divided Siamese twins


In the Australian city of Melbourne, State of Victoria, surgeons have successfully divided 15-month-old Siamese twins from Bhutan. The The Guardian edition reports about it. Girls Nym (Nima) and Dawa were born grown together around a stomach and the lower part of a thorax. Besides, they had one liver for two. In Bhutan there were no experts having sufficient qualification for division of Siamese twins therefore the help had to be looked for abroad. The government of the Australian State of Victoria has agreed to pay operation and treatment which will cost not less than 350 thousand Australian dollars (about 17 million rubles). Reimbursement for air flights and accommodation were undertaken by the charitable organization Children First Foundation. Nym and Dawa, their mother and the Bhutan pediatrician who watched over health of sisters have arrived in Melbourne in October. After survey the Australian doctors have decided to postpone surgical intervention to November that girls had time to gain weight. Operation in which about 25 health workers under the leadership of the children's surgeon Joe Crameri participated continued nearly six hours. "We are quite sure of a favorable outcome, however, as well as in all postoperative cases, we will attentively watch their state in the next few hours" — Crameri after division of twins has said. In July it was reported that residents of the Philippine city of Iligan have raised money for removal of a twin parasite at 14-year-old Veronika Kominges. The girl was born with two excess extremities and an oblong outgrowth on a stomach and a breast from under which blood and liquid with an unpleasant smell exuded.
