Conjoined twins DIE days after delivery in Lagos

A set of conjoined twins delivered by medical experts at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) have died.

LASUTH’s Chief Medical Director (CMD) Prof. Adetokunbo Fabamwo broke the news yesterday in a chat with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

On October 5, the hospital’s management announced the delivery of the twins at its Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at an estimated gestational age of 33 weeks and six days.

According to the CMD, although the set of twins died, their mother is doing well.

He said: “The nature of their joining was so complex. They are joined from up to down, which is so complex. Moreover, they must have reached a certain age before they are separated.

“The first twins had congenital heart issues that weren’t compatible with life. When you have abnormalities like that, there are usually other abnormalities in the body.

“She was the first that died on Sunday. “When it happened, we quickly moved to separate them by assembling a team of multispecialty experts from LASUTH and other hospitals.
