Conjoined twins to be separated before Christmas

Post  xominivyox on Wed Dec 10, 2008 4:11 am

Vietnam National Hospital of Pediatrics in Hanoi decided Monday to perform separation surgery on conjoined twins on December 22.

The twins – Nguyen Van Cu and Nguyen Van Co – were born to Dam Thi Chuyen last Tuesday in north central Nghe An Province and have been diagnosed with a heart abnormality.

The hospital said some 20 local doctors would participate in the operation with heart specialists likely coming from the Republic of Korea or Italy to provide professional assistance. It will also sponsor the total cost of the operation, which is estimated at VND100 million (US$5,800).
