A pair of conjoined twins from Badaun in Uttar Pradesh who were joined at the hip and lower back have been separated following a 24-hour surgery at the AIIMS here, officials said.

The two-year-old girls had a fused pelvis, spinal bones, spinal cord, intestines and shared a common rectum besides having abnormalities of the heart and major blood vessels, a senior doctor said.

The surgery which began at 8.30 am on Friday continued past 9 AM on Saturday, 23 May 2020. A team of 64 healthcare workers including surgeons, anaesthetists, plastic surgeons were involved in the surgery.

The process of anaesthesia and the surgery was very challenging as both the children have a hole each in their hearts, the senior doctor said.

As a part of the surgery, remodelling of the spinal cords, separation of the spines, reconstruction of rectum and blood vessels of the thighs were done. Also, the uterus had to be separated and reconstructed.

The surgery was led by Dr Minu Bajpai, HoD, Department of Paediatric Surgery, with assistance from anaesthetists, plastic surgeons among others.
