Second conjoined Bangladesh twin out of coma after miraculous separation operation

November 21, 2009

(ChattahBox) — The second of two conjoined twins who were separated during 32 hours of surgery on Monday and Tuesday, in Australia has woken from an induced coma, and blew her guardian a raspberry. The child, Krishna, suffered complications during the operation to separate her from her twin, Trishna, for which both were heavily sedated. Trishna, was said to now be “100 percent perfect” after waking up on Thursday.  The prognosis on Krishna also looks good so far, but doctors will have to see how she responds over the next couple of days.
Having both of them now awake is a bit of a miracle. The technically challenging and risky surgery  required dividing the connected skulls, brains and blood vessels of the conjoined twins and was initially given only a 25 percent chance of complete success. It took two years of planning and preparatory operations to set up the final separation for the twins who are now close to 3 years of age.

The girls’ surgery has made news in Bangladesh, where their mother, Lavlee Mollik, 22, wept when she and husband Kartik, 35, heard they had survived the surgery. The impoverished couple, from the city of Khulna, gave the conjoined girls up for adoption when they were 16 days old because they were unable to provide medical care for them.
