A 15-month-old girl, Nima and Dawa, who were adults in the upper torso, complicated the operation well. "It's a relief, and joy is also," said chief physician Joe Cramer.
Two dozen doctors, nurses and nurses took part in the operation at Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne. Shortly after a successful surgery, the clinic has published photos of how the little ones will be in their beds for the first time in their lives. According to medical data, they already breathe on their own.
Physicians managed to distinguish the common liver of the two girls. The digestive tract is also isolated. Fortunately, in the opinion of physicians, there were no surprises during surgery. "After each operation, the next 24-48 hours will be a challenge, but we have no doubt that the result will be good," Cramer said.
The children will stay in the hospital for a while. Along with them is their mother Bhumchu Zangmo. The cost of the operation – over 200,000 euros – will be covered by Australia's Victoria State, which has Melbourne. The family would not have collected such money.
A two-year Sia separation operation in Bangladesh was carried out at the same hospital. The operation lasted for a total of 38 hours. Trishna and Krishna live today in Australia.
