Ejura hospital officials separate Siamese twins

The Ejura Government Hospital in the Ashanti Region has recorded a first case of delivery of Siamese twins.
According to health workers at the facility, they performed a caesarian section to remove the babies after the mother, 28 year old Asamawu Abdallah had undergone a similar surgery two years ago.
The babies, both females are conjoined to the abdomen.
The C-section, which started at about 6:30pm ended at 7:00pm Saturday evening.
Medical Superintendent at the Ejura Government Hospital, Dr. Mensah Manye, who confirmed the incident said the twins were receiving medical attention.
Dr. Manye indicated that he performed a more complicated case at the New Edubiase hospital in the Ashanti region five years ago.
He said the twins in that case shared vital organs like the heart and lungs, a condition he described as a very delicate one.
The mother is being monitored by health workers at the Ejura Government Hospital.
The babies will also be referred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) for a surgery to be conducted.
