A set of conjoined twins from the Eastern Cape are successfully separated during a sensitive operation at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital in Cape Town . The hospital says the twins were delivered to the hospital in February once they were only four days old. The proud mother, 31 year-old Ntombikayise Tyhalisi, said after the unique operation that she couldn’t believe that she would be ready to hold Siphosethu and Amahle in separate arms after their birth. the top of paediatric neurosurgery at the hospital, Professor Tony Figaji says the babies were joined at the top in what’s mentioned as craniopagus twinning, the rarest sort of conjoined twinning. It occurs approximately once in every two-point-five million live births within the world. He says both patients and their mother do well.

Their 31-year-old mother, Ntombikayise Tyhalisi, said beforr the successful operation she didn’t think that she would be ready to hold Siphosethu and Amahle in separate arms as they were conjoined. The twins were born with their heads attached to every other which isn’t very unusual when it involves twins, there are always possibilities of them being conjoined.

 

 

It happens almost once in every 2,5 million live births within the world, sometimes it happens that they need to lose one twin to save lots of the opposite so once they both survive it’s actually an excellent deal. the oldsters are excited about this whole because it is extremely rare for both twins to form it, and this is often quite pleasing to the oldsters as they’re getting to have their twin babies having the ability to measure separate lives.
