A set of siamese twins weighing 2.5 at birth were successively separated on Thursday, by a team of medical experts at  University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan


The separation of the siamese twins born 3.00 a.m by one Jumoke Ajibola, a 26-year-old patent medicine vendor residing in Jos, took the team of experts led by Dr Kayode Ogundoyin about three hours.



The siamese twins, a baby girl and another that was partly formed, were joined in the honeypotl area and shared one heart. The partly formed siamese twins only had legs and intestines, but no head.

The surviving twin, currently at the intensive care unit of the hospital is responding well to treatment and weighed 2kg after the surgical separation which included a reconstruction of her honeypot.

Hospital sources confirming the incident disclosed that the partly formed twin had been sent to pathologist for assessment of what caused the problem.

Also, tests carried out on the baby girl indicated that she need not fear any complications from her parasitic twins later in the future.

Separation of siamese twins usually take more than 3hrs.This was easy bcos one of d twin was malformed and already dead. I look forward to wen we will separation siamese twins who will both stay alive.Nigerian doctors are really working hard in a harsh environment.

Thank God. Who says Nigerian doctors are not good. What they need is adequate funding of our hospitals.
