Saudi surgical team announces death of one of the separated Yemeni conjoined twins
The Saudi specialist surgeons team that successfully operated the separation surgery of the Yemeni conjoined twins in King Abdulaziz Medical City in Riyadh Sunday, announced that one of the twins died on the second day of the separation surgery.
The death was a result of a severe drop in blood circulation and heart failure, despite full medical care provided for him, citing that the surgical team had faced great difficulties and challenges during the separation process, which made the deceased’s condition critical after the operation.
The surgical team added that the condition of the other twin is stable but he is still under observation in the Intensive Care Department of King Abdullah Specialist Padiatric Hospital in King Abdulaziz Medical City in Riyadh.
The medical team extended its deepest condolences to the parents of the twins, asking Allah Almighty to grant them patience and solace.
