LIVER SEPARATION:

The plan is to localize the blood supply of the liver from each twin and bile ducts.
The line of fusion is to be identified, and a catheter is to be passed behind the liver to mark the site.
The separation will be conducted to minimize blood loss using ultrasound dissection and Argon laser with control of bleeding with unipolar diathermy.
After completing each segment of the liver, the edges will be approximated with absorbable sutures 3/0 (liver needle).


CHEST AND ABDOMINAL WALL SEPARATION:
This will be done with plans not to turn the twins upside down.


RECONSTRUCTION OF ABDOMINAL WALL DEFECT AND PECTUS CARINATUM:
This will be done in conjunction with Plastic Surgery. The teams plan to avoid using and prosthetic tissue for coverage and also to correct the chest wall deformity, if the medical condition of the twins allows and there is no pressure on the underlying structures.
