  • Palestinian conjoined twins separated at Hadassah hospital

    December 27, 2011 | 12:44 pm

    Surgeons at Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem separated conjoined twins in utero.

    The babies shared a placenta and major blood vessels. Their lives were in danger in the womb of their 25-year-old mother, from a Palestinian village, who was in her 20th week of pregnancy.

    The babies’ blood supply was separated using a laser device inserted in the womb.
