Iranian surgeons successfully separate conjoined twins

Two female siblings who were connected to each other at birth were successfully separated in an hours-long surgery in a hospital in the southern Iranian city of Shiraz.

Ten-month old Roghayeh and Um al-Banin, who shared parts of small intestine, pancreas and duodenum, went through a high-risk surgery to amicably part ways.

The twins had undergone a previous surgery when they were 3.5 months old to get their livers separated, when the doctors found they share more vital organs.
