Conjoined Saudi twins undergo medical tests

RIYADH: A specialist medical team headed by Minister of Health Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah carried out preliminary medical tests on two Saudi conjoined twins at King Abdulaziz Medical City in Riyadh on Wednesday.
The twins were flown to Riyadh from Baha on board an air ambulance following instructions from Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah.
After arrival at Riyadh Air Base, the twins were taken to the city where they were admitted to the intensive care unit for the newborn.
After carrying out tests, Al-Rabeeah said that the twins were conjoined at the abdomen, pelvis and intestines, and sharing urinary and reproductive organs. He said more tests would be carried out on the twins over the coming three weeks to ascertain the viability of their surgical separation.
The minister thanked King Abdullah for his humanitarian gesture to meet all expense of the transportation, medical tests and surgical separation of the twins.
Al-Rabeeah is internationally renowned for his expertise in the separation procedures of conjoined twins. He has so far performed about 30 successful surgeries on conjoined twins from within the Kingdom and several other countries at the King Abdulaziz Medical City. King Abdullah met the entire cost of the surgical separations.
