Twin Medical Information

A multidisciplinary team was formed headed by Dr. Abdullah Al Rabeeah, in order to plan the work-up and management of Talia and Taleen. The team held their first official meeting on Wednesday, 24 September 2003 at 4:00pm. The following tests were arranged:

  1. Blood work to assess the function of blood, kidneys and liver.
  2. Testing skin; mouth and nose for bacteria and fungi.
  3. Assessment of the heart by Eccho (ultrasound) and EKG.
  4. Total body x-ray.
  5. Ultrasound for liver, kidneys, genitalia, and abdominal blood vessels.
  6. C-T Scan of chest and abdomen.

During the meeting of the multidisciplinary team, the following results were determined:

  1. The twin are joined at the lower chest and abdomen.
  2. The lower sternum and ribs are joined.
  3. There are two separate hearts, but there may be a small joining of the pericardium (covering of the heart). However, Taleen has a defect between the ventricles of her heart (VSD).
  4. The twin share a liver.
  5. There is only one umbilicus.
  6. The abdominal cavity is shared, but the bowels appear separate.
  7. The pelvis and lower limbs are separate.

In addition, the multidisciplinary team decided the following:

  • Talia and Taleen are potentially separable.
  • The rehearsal operation will be done on Tuesday, 30 September 2003.
  • The operation to separate Talia and Taleen will be on Saturday, 04 October 2003 at 7:30am.

The operation will be live via the Internet. National and international media will cover and broadcast the operation.
