A medical team at Pediatrics Department at University Hospital at Al Shtby District in Alexandria، has succeeded in separating two conjoined twins.
The twins were adhesive at the abdomen part of their two bodies.
They also have joint umbilical cord but two separated umbilical veins.
One of the twins has also defects in her heart.
She needs intensive medical care.
Doctors conducted this operation after screening the twin.
They are in stable condition in the Intensive Care at the hospital.
It is worth to mention that high rate of Siamese twins in Egypt and other countries in the third world، is linked to rising percentage of chemicals in food and fresh water.
