Iraqi Conjoined Twins Chris and Christian to Undergo Separation Surgery

The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, has issued a directive for the treatment of Iraqi conjoined twins, “Christian” and “Chris”  The Surgical and Multidisciplinary Team headed by Minister of Health, HE Dr. Abdullah Al Rabeeah, has reviewed the twins’ case, and all preliminary medical investigations have been completed.  The tests reveal that the twins are joined at the abdomen (type “omphalopagus”), and share a liver.

The separation of the twins will take place at King Abdulaziz Medical City (Ministry of National Guard – Health Affairs) on Thursday, April 10, 2014.  The separation is expected to take approximately seven hours, and will be completed in seven procedural phases.  The surgical team comprises 23 members, including specialists in anesthesia, pediatrics, plastic surgery and nursing.   

Since 1990 the Saudi team has separated 31 pairs of conjoined twins, with an 80% rate of success. The parents of the twins are extremely appreciative and thankful for the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosque’s fatherly gesture, and for his generosity towards their family. We all pray to God for the successful outcome of the operation, and for the well-being of the twins.
