The girls come from Taizhou, east China's Zhejiang Province. They shared a liver and a digestive tract before the surgery and have congenital heart disease, doctors said.

Although the operation was successful, the girls still face many challenges to survive, such as the failure of internal organs after the surgery, they said.

Seventy doctors and nurses have been taking care of the two girls in the hospital.
