Conjoined twin girls, Miracle and Testimony Ayeni, have been successfully separated.
A team of expert at United States based Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital successfully separated the twins in a surgical procedure that took 18 hours.
Miracle and Testimony Ayeni, were born fused together at the lower half of their bodies, they shared a colon, their kidneys were hooked, and their pelvises were fused and open, causing their legs to splay out at 90 degree angles.
The surgical team leader, Dr. Max Langham said their condition is rare, adding that it occurs maybe in one of every 5 million births.
“I was so excited. Those tears that you see back there, those are tears of joy, because if you see the way the twins are before, and you see them now, you would be grateful to God,” the twins’ mother Mary Ayeni was quoted as saying.
