Dallas, Oct. 13 (Reuters): Two-year-old Egyptian twins separated at the crown of their heads were in a medically induced coma today and US doctors said the boys were doing well after spending their first ever night apart.
Dr James Thomas, director of critical care at the Children’s Medical Centre in Dallas where the boys were separated yesterday, said the twins were doing very well.
“They had a very good night. They stayed in good shape. There were no major problems,” Thomas told ABC’s Good Morning America show.
Ahmed and Mohamed Ibrahim were separated about 27 hours after the intricate procedure began and they were given a chance at living independent lives.
