The Press and Journal (Inverness, Highlands, and Islands) - - WORLD NEWS -

Con­joined twins from Bhutan have been sep­a­rated af­ter a six-hour op­er­a­tion at an Aus­tralian hospi­tal.

The pro­ce­dure di­vided the 15-month-old girls’ shared liver and re­con­structed their ab­domens.

Joe Crameri, the head of pae­di­atric surgery at Mel­bourne’s Royal Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal, said the girls, Nima and Dawa, were do­ing well af­ter the surgery.

The girls were joined from the lower chest to just above the pelvis.
