导读:安安和心心是两位四个月大的连体女婴,在上海儿童医疗中心经过了六个小时的手术后,成功地从胸部和腹部分开。手术从周一上午9点开始,由四组医生同时连续工作了六个个小时。这两位女婴在出生两小时后就转入了上海儿童医疗中心,但因体重太轻,无法在当时完成手术。女孩的母亲是一位来自浙江的39岁女子,她在产前检查时就发现双胞胎女儿是在胸部连体,采取了医生的建议后,她决定产下双胞胎女婴。连体婴儿很罕见,全世界范围内约每5到10万新生儿中会出现一例。

SHANGHAI - Surgeons have successfully separated 4-month-old twin girls joined at the breast and abdomen after an operation lasting almost six hours.

An An and Xin Xin were on Tuesday in stable condition at the intensive care unit of Shanghai Children's Medical Center, where doctors say they will need help from breathing apparatus for some time.

"The girls have separate hearts, so the connection was not complicated," said Chen Qimin, one of the doctors involved in the surgery.

The operation began at 9 am on Monday and involved four groups of doctors working simultaneously for almost six hours. "As well as separating the girls' hearts and livers, we also needed to reshape their breast bones and remodel their breasts with titanium-alloy plates," Chen said.

When An An and Xin Xin were born in April this year, they were connected by the liver and a sac surrounding the heart. They were transferred to Shanghai Children's Medical Center two hours after their birth.

"At that time they weighed a combined 4.9 kg, and they needed to gain more weight before we could operate," Chen said. "They weighed 10 kg (on Monday) after several months of comprehensive nursing in the center."

The twins' mother, a 39-year-old woman from Zhejiang province who declined to be interviewed, discovered her babies were conjoined during a prenatal check 18 weeks into her pregnancy. After learning that the twin girls were only connected at the liver, chest bone and heart sac, she decided to go ahead with the pregnancy under doctors' advice.

The Shanghai Children's Medical Center has previously separated two pairs of conjoined twins. "Compared with the previous two, this is the first time a pair has been diagnosed during prenatal tests. We closely observed the twins during the pregnancy," said Liu Jinfen, president of the center.

He added that research will be carried out to better detect congenital deformities at the early stage of pregnancy.

Conjoined twins are rare, with the deformity occurring once in every 50,000 to 100,000 births worldwide.

China has a high incidence of congenital deformities, and each year about 800,000 to 1.2 million newborns are affected by birth defects, such as congenital heart disease, cleft lip and palate and digestive tract problems.
