Update on Iraqi Conjoined Twins (Not Separated)
12 March 2006

In a statement today Dr. Abdullah Al Rabeeah, Head of the Multidisciplinary Team, explained that the Iraqi Conjoined Twins, Fatima and Zahra, arrived at KAMC-Riyadh on 5 February 2006 “6/01/1427H” and were admitted to the hospital. Soon after their arrival the twins developed a urinary tract infection that led to an infection in their blood which necessitated their transfer to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). Following aggressive treatment, the twins recovered sufficiently to enable the Multidisciplinary Team to start the workup to study their internal organs, but the twins then developed another infection in their chest and blood which hindered further tests to study their anatomy.

Again they required very close treatment in the PICU, and are now being followed by the PICU Consultants and Pediatric Infectious Disease Consultants.

According to Dr. Al Rabeeah, the condition of the twins continues to be critical as their body structure and weight exposes them to such infections. It is hoped that once they are over this critical period the Multidisciplinary Team will be able to continue their investigations to determine whether they will be candidates for separation.


Iraqi Conjoined Twins
Arrive at King Abdulaziz Medical City-Riyadh

Following the intervention of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the Iraqi conjoined twins, Fatima and Zahra, arrived at King Abdulaziz Medical City-Riyadh on 5 February 2006 with their parents.

Dr. Abdullah Al Rabeeah, Head of the Multidisciplinary Team stated that the twins’ condition is stable, although they have a low weight of approximately 3.2 kg and require an intensive feeding program.

The twins are joined at the lower part of the chest, abdomen and pelvis and share one genital organ and anus. It is also likely that they share one large bowel. The twins have one single lower limb each, with a third deformed shared limb.

The twins will undergo a comprehensive assessment, work-up and investigation to determine if they are candidates for separation. However, they will need to reach a weight of approximately 8.0 kg and, if separation is viable, it is anticipated to take place in 2-3 months time.

The initial examinations will include the following specialist disciplines: Anesthesia, Pediatric Urology, Pediatric Surgery, Pediatric Orthopedics, Plastic Surgery. The twins are currently under the care of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Dr. Al Rabeeah again stated his appreciation of the fatherly and humanitarian generosity of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, and the continuation of the Kingdom of Humanity in reaching out across geographical and cultural barriers to aid those in need regardless of race, color or beliefs. He also expressed his appreciation to HRH Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince, Deputy Premier and Defense Minister for his directive in providing the Medical Evacuation Jet.
