 Conjoined Twin Does Not Survive After Surgery

10-month-old conjoined twins Maria Jose and Maria Paz from Chile were operated to surgically separate them.

Following the complex 20-hour surgery, one of the twin girls could not survive due to general organ failure. The surgery was performed to separate them at the thorax, abdomen and pelvis.
