Pakistan Twins FATIMA, MASHAEL Separated In Saudi Hospital


RIYADH: Pakistani Siamese twins Fatima and Mashael, who were separated here earlier this month, are in a stable condition, according to a local media report on Friday, Arab Media reported.


Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, head of the surgical team, confirmed that the twins’ vital signs were normal and that their lives were no longer in danger.

They have been transferred from the hospital’s intensive care unit to the children’s ward. The twins had been separated at the King Abdullah Specialized Hospital for Children, part of the National Guard’s King Abdulaziz Medical City.

The twins have reportedly started to interact with their parents and the medical team following up on their condition, and were eating normally. The parents of little girls thanked Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and members of the medical team for helping them.

The children had arrived in Riyadh with their parents on March 3 and had undergone surgery to separate them at the lower chest and abdomen. They had to have their joint liver separated and some organs reconstructed. The operation took six hours involving 20 consultants and specialists.

This is the 40th such case undertaken in the Kingdom.
