Conjoined twins are separated

November 18, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A pair of formerly conjoined Bangladeshi twins were in serious but stable condition after surgery to separate them. The toddlers were born joined at their heads.

Trishna and Krishna, who turn 3 next month, shared a section of skull, blood vessels and brain tissue. They underwent 25 hours of surgery and reconstruction by a team of 16 surgeons and nurses.

It is too early to know whether the girls suffered any brain damage during surgery.
