AIIMS doctors have said that the condition of the craniopagus twins who were surgically separated on Friday will remain critical for at least “one or two weeks”, depending on when they start to breathe without the support of the ventilator.

Dr Girija Prasad Rath, professor, department of neuro anesthesiology and critical care said, “The main concern is that since they were conjoined earlier, it is now a different physiology. They are maintaining blood circulation on their own. This change will have an effect on the functioning of vital organs. They were dependent on each other and are suddenly managing their own physiology. This will take time and will continue to be a challenge for the critical care team.”
