40 Indian doctors separate twins joined in the skull

Doctors in India have successfully separated conjoined twin boys who were attached at the skull in a marathon surgical procedure that lasted more than 36 hours and involved 40 doctors.
The two-year-old twins, who suffered a rare condition occurring once in about 2.5 million births, underwent the operation at a government-run hospital in New Delhi on Wednesday.

“It was a team work of 40 doctors, 20 nurses and many other paramedical staff. Without their help this would not have been possible,” the All India Institute of Medical Science hospital said in a statement.

 One of the surgeons involved said the most challenging aspect was repairing the holes left in the young boys’ heads after they were separated.
The twins were born in a village in the eastern state of Orissa with shared blood vessels and some shared brain tissue.
The twins were born in a village in the eastern state of Odisha with shared blood vessels and some shared brain tissue. They had undergone the first phase of the separation surgery in August.
“The most challenging job after the separation was to provide a skin cover on both sides of the brain for the children as the surgery had left large holes on their heads,” said Maneesh Singhal, a plastic surgeon who was a part of the operating team.
“The skin was generated from the expansion of two balloons which were placed inside their heads during the first surgery in August,” Singhal told AFP on Friday.
“The next step will be reconstruction of their skulls,” he added.
Conjoined siblings are identical twins who are born with their skin and internal organs fused together, according to the University of Maryland Medical Centre website.
About half are stillborn, and the survival rate is between five and 25 percent.
They develop from a single egg, which splits in the case of healthy twins, but not fully in the case of conjoined siblings.

BREAKING: 15 Heavily Armed Robbers Invade Skye Bank, Shot Dead Two Policemen, Cart Away All Money In Vault

SKYE BANK
Suspected armed robbers killed two policemen at a Skye Bank branch in Ifon, headquarters of Ose local government area of Ondo state, on Thursday.

A witness said the suspects numbering 15 stormed the premises of the bank around 3pm.

He said they blew up the bullet-proof door with substance suspected to be dynamite before gaining entrance.

A yet to be identified man at a medical clinic beside the bank was also reportedly killed.

“On entering into the bank, the robbers packed all the money in the vault, while some of them engaged the policemen in a gun duel outside the bank,” the witness said.

“They were heavily armed. When they got to the bank, they could not enter easily because the bank had stopped attending to customers. So, they had to blow the door up with dynamite.

“For several minutes, they were shooting everywhere, two of the policemen that engaged them were killed but none of the robbers was killed during the shooting.”

Confirming the incident, Femi Joseph, police public relations officer in the state, said the command deployed more officers and men in the scene.

He added that Gbenga Adeyanju, the state commissioner of police, also visited the bank.

“It is unfortunate that we lost two of our men in the incident, but we are still on the trail of the robbers, they went to the bank with sophisticated weapon and inspite of that our men still engaged them,” he said.

“The commissioner of police himself led the team from Akure to the scene, it was when they (robbers) knew that we were closing in on them that they ran away with bullets wounds. We shall get them soonest because our men are still on their trail.”
