In Delhi, India, amazing surgeons were able to separate twin infants that were conjoined at the top part of their heads. The twin boys names are Kalia and Jaga. Kalia and Jaga were in their surgery for nearly twenty hours. The surgeons and doctors working with the twin boys and their family say the boys are now in the ICU. Thirty doctors assisted in the sixteen-hour surgery for the twin boys. The operation is one of the first of its kind in the country of India at a state-run hospital.
One in three million births worldwide children are born with this rare condition. Kalia and Jaga were born with conjoined and share brain tissues and blood vessels through their heads. Randeep Guleria, the director of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in the nation, stated the next step with the twins is very critical. Randeep says during the next month he will base the twins healing on the certainty of the surgeons. Also, on how they did with the boys. The condition that the boys suffer from is craniopagus, and in most cases, children with this illness die shortly after birth.
Conjoined Twins Separated
Twin boys Kalia and Jaga are from a small village on the east side of Orissa state in India. They were able to travel with their parents to prep for the surgery. Physicians say that typically infants will have a fifty-fifty chance of living with this condition. Sadly both boys are suffering from other medical issues as well. Kalia suffers from serving kidney problems and nausea.
While the other twin boy Jaga suffers from heart issues since his birth. Randeep Guleria, the director of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, reports that that at birth Jaga was the healthier twin. Be that as it may, his heart problems are going away. He also adds that Kalia’s kidneys are receiving treatment with medications that seem to be working. Also, he is slowly getting stronger and better.
