Know the astonishing details of separation surgery of Odisha conjoined twins”

The doctors, however, said that the condition of the twins, who were joined from their heads, is critical but stable.

"We have done the surgery but it is still a long journey for the children". One of the babies was shifted to ICU at 11.45 pm and the other baby at 2.30 am, a statement said.

Asked if the chances of survival for both the kids were the same, Mahapatra said that Jaga was more fragile health-wise and his condition was more critical now. Twins joined at the head are rare, occurring once in 25 million live births; it is even rarer for them to share the vein carrying blood back from the brain to the heart.

Citing the criticality of the case, the doctors said the next 18 days were extremely critical to ascertain the success of the surgery.

The condition of Kalia is much better than his brother Jaga, informed sources. The health condition of the children is stable.

Called Jagga and Balia by their family, the twins were referred to AIIMS from the Cuttack District Hospital in Odisha, where they were born. The conjoined twins were admitted to the AIIMS on July 13. Both Jaga and Baliya, who underwent the first phase of surgery to separate on August 28, were wheeled into the operation theatre and anesthetised.

Elaborating the challenges during the surgery, Guleria said: "There was a situation in which one of the kids did not have blood nerves, which had to be created".

In the country, two similar surgeries had taken place earlier to separate twins joined at the head but were not successful as the children died during the procedure.

A team of about 30 specialists from the institute's neurosurgery, neuro-anaesthesia and plastic surgery departments performed the second phase of the marathon surgery. The State Government had sanctioned '1 crore from the Chief Minister's Relief Fund (CMRF) for their treatment.Parents of the twins said they are happy to know that the surgery passed off well. During several weeks of observations and tests, including magnetic resonance imaging scans of the twins' heads, prior to surgery, doctors also improved the boys' general health through nutrition and medications.
