According to officials at the Albert Royer Hospital, in reports reported by BBC, the Siamese “were linked by the sternum, the pericardium, that is to say the envelope of the heart, and mainly by the livers”. Sophie and Adja have successfully undergone the operation that will allow each of them to live independently of each other.
These two Siamese sisters were born linked by the liver to the hospital of Pikine, in the eastern suburbs of Dakar, the Senegalese capital.
Aged only 48 days, they were admitted to the hospital Albert Royer of Dakar, where “they were separated successfully,” informs the communication department said hospital.
This is the first time that such an operation has taken place in this hospital which is located in the National University Hospital Center of Fann, Dakar.
