Maya and Lydia, the two-month fused premature born were successfully operated last December. Siamese twins are known to be conjoined siblings or identical twins who are born with their one, or the other organ joined together. Maya and Lydia were such infants who had a single fused heart.
The twins were brought to Geneva University Hospital weighing 2.4 pounds each. Barbara Wildharber, the surgeon who headed the team, said, "Separating the babies liver put the babies into pressure". She added on by saying," We were prepared for the death of both the babies, it was extreme." to the Swiss media.
"But it was magnificent. Something I will remember my entire life" - Barbara's (the head surgeon) words.
The smallest pair attached at their livers, chest and skin were operated by a team of doctors including five surgeons assisted by two nurses and six anesthesiologists.
The twins were fused on the liver and chest, merely weighing 4lb 14oz after being born as eight-month premature's along with their triplet Kamilia. They were reported to be completely normal after their birth, but a week later their condition started deteriorating, out of which one suffered from hypertension and the other with hypotension. A sudden need to operate percolated.
The operation was carried out in Bern, Switzerland and it took 5 long hours for them to be operated magnificently with just one percent chance of accomplishment.
The twins emerged out as significantly beautiful prematures after the surgery.
The babies weighed 2.4 pounds each after the outstanding surgery.
