After several disappointments in the past, there is a clear feeling of trust for conjoined twins Veena and Vani. Specialists from Great Ormond Street Hospital, London have given 80 every penny chance for an effective surgery that would separate them and make it workable for the twins to live regularly.
On Saturday, David Dunaway, Head of Craniofacial Unit, Great Ormond Street Hospital, UK, and healing center’s pediatric neurosurgeon, Noor Ul Owase Jeelani audited the state of the conjoined twins and interfaced with their guardians. “We feel that there is a good chance for both of them to get separated safely. There’s no denying the complexity of the whole process, but we already have successfully handled two similar cases in the past,” he said.
Specialists said that the surgery won’t be carried out at one single sitting. “One major surgery is dangerous as it prompts mind swelling and blood misfortune. We will arrange carefully and change over one complex surgery into a progression of clear basic possible surgeries. That is the magnificence of our strategy. There will be five stages and we need to take Veena and Vani to our clinic in UK,” they said.
About four years prior, they had done a comparable surgery on one-year-old conjoined twins from Sudan.“We have seen CT scans and other medical history of Veena and Vani. This is anatomically similar to the Sudan case. We need to do some more tests and prepare 3D models of the brains and vascular system to study sharing of blood between the two,” surgeons said.
“Before, a few specialists came and provided for us trust, however never conveyed on their promises. Since these specialists have guaranteed of 80 percent chance of success, we are prepared to hazard it and give our girls an opportunity to lead an ordinary life,” Murali, twins’ dad said.
