• Conjoined parasitic twins joined at the head are described as craniopagus or cephalopagus, and occipitalis if joined in the occipital region or parietalis if joined in the parietal region.• Craniopagus parasiticus is a general term for a parasitic head attached to the head of a more fully developed fetus or infant. Craniopagus parasiticus is an extremely rare type of parasitic twinning occurring in about 2 to 3 of 5,000,000 births. In craniopagus parasiticus, a parasitic twin head with an undeveloped body is attached to the head of a developed twin. Fewer than a dozen cases of this type of conjoined twin have been documented in literature. October 14, 2016 10:19 AM EDT T win boys born with their heads conjoined have been successfully separated following complex surgery that took nearly 16.5 hours.

Jadon and Anias McDonald, who are. Jadon and Anias McDonald, the once-conjoined twins whose separation surgery captivated millions in 2017, are now 3. Their progress in the two years since is. The separation of craniopagus conjoined twins is a very rare and complex challenge.

As with many rare challenges, it presents initially as a deceptively simple problem requiring only the most basic clinical techniques. As in many reconstructive problems, this paradigm mandates that the neurosurgical team. Maged was born March 30, 2004, with a rare birth defect called craniopagus parasiticus. The defect occurs when an embryo begins to split into identical twins but.

A parasitic twin is an identical twin that has stopped developing during gestation, but is physically attached to the fully developing twin. The fully developed twin is also known as the dominant. Conjoined twins Vani and Veena, seen here in in Hyderabad, India, in 2007, are craniopagus twins, which means they were born joined at the head making separation risky. Craniopagus twins are described.

At the age of 24 years, the twins appeared to have adapted well to their disability. The site of union, their relatively advanced age, and the high risk of operation were the reasons for not proposing surgical separation. Conjoined twins who are classified as craniopagus (joined at the cranium) have a rare congenital anomaly.

Despite advances in surgical techniques and critical care, the rate of.

Five types of conjoined twins have been described: thoracopagus (joined at the thorax), omphalopagus (joined at the anterior wall), craniopagus (joined at the cranium, syncephalus, conjoined twins with one head) pygopagus (joined at the ischial region), and ischiopagus (attached at the buttocks).

Other conjoined twins, though, will not be able to survive very long unless they are surgically separated, which often entails that one of the twins will not survive depending on how they are conjoined and what organs are functionally shared between them.

  • We have the same case here in the Philippines, Everytime I saw them on national tv I feel sad for them hope that you consider also to help them. ������ Godbless doctors!

  • I hate this video and everyone in it exept for the twins because of everything the comment section pointed out but also because of the terrible music and editing because yeah its pretty shocking but that other child that didnt survive, thats still a human, shes not some horror movie demon, shes a poor baby who wasn’t able to survive, also the whole “sucking the life force out of the baby thing or whatever”, is that the twin’s fault? No, it isn’t. And i feel that the mother felt NOTHING for the twin because uuuhhhhh ew it’s scary and different or whatever, but again, IT’S STILL A HUMAN BEING. Stop saying it was some kind of monster demon because it sucking the life out of your child. Was it the twin’s fault or the twin’s body’s fault, think about that one.

    Edit: I also HAAAAAAAAAAATE how in 1:34 theres an awful edit lookin like a 90s video game ad with the fast camera movement making it seem like the twin, the head, the parasitic head whatever insults you want to throw at HER. Making HER look like a monster, well you know whos the real monster? Figure it out when you die.

  • Watching this and thinking of the beautiful twins laden and lahen who wanted to be separated to have there own life but with saddness they both didn’t make it as adults the surgery was more risky glad this girl got the chance to be separated and have there own life.

  • Doctors god’s Please Please sar ma India lo 2 children’s twins. Veena Vaani. Same problems please sar half me operation, children’s address Telangana Jilla Hyderabad.. please sar half me ����������������������

  • @SuckOnThisDailyVlg i know that it might sound messed up but its true. maybe they need to believe in jesus and stop praying to other stuff that cant help them. but these poor little boys!:'(

  • I go to this hospital every year for my heart
    I have had 3 surgeries there and all of them have been successful
    I recommend this hospital to all children in London

  • These people who call that baby a parasite are sick in the head and evil. They do it so they don’t have to feel as guilty for killing her, it’s a lot easier to say we removed the parasite rather than we had to kill the baby, and why wasn’t the stump of whatever body she did have covered to keep her warm? You animals.

  • Que desagradable la forma en que se refieren al bebé malformado como una cosa o un parásito. Simplemente era una bebé mal formado sin posibilidades de sobrevivir. Se toleró su separación y muerte en favor la supervivencia del único que podría vivir.

  • A lot of people are sensitive to the other child being referred to as “IT” however the situation is so unusual most people are confused as to what to call the child.

  • The one on the left at the end was left vegetative by the surgery and unfortunately died later. Thankfully he sister is doing fine.

  • Man dat breaks my heart dat da one dey call a parasite has to go thru all of dis, not being fully formed, she look so adorable wen she was drinking milk n blinking, reminding me dat shes alive, where ever she is, she is now with God in heaven away from dis world we live in, now in peace aswel with many others, who help open r eyes to all different beauties n understanding of life.:’|

  • To those who say “are we playing God? ” shut it. God didn’t make a human organism to be the smartest for no reason. He knew that we will need this interlectual in the future. Great job to the medic staff.

  • Did they make that poor baby travel all the world to appear 3 minutes on the show?? Why didn’t they send Oprah there?? Those people make me sick.

  • The day I knew that doctors are the basic need for human’s life. Thanks for everyone who gave a hand for the separation of those beautiful twins safa and marwa

  • at least some of the hospital staff recongized Islaam as a conscious, human baby, and seemingly gave her some love and comfort. I’m not judging the parents, though. It must be devastating, nobody should have to go through this! And they had to take care of their other kids. But still, it’s so heartbreaking to see Islaam being treated like a thing, deprived of love…

  • Two brains, it’s them not her. They didn’t speak veey respectfully about her as a human being, even if she was not fully developed who knows how much conscience she had but then this was an extremely rare case.

  • …they concentrated on “THE NICE BABY”…, if I understant that correctly Manar is not nice and she`s ugly? Oh my god people! Isn`t it bad enough that you called the conjoined twin it?

  • I feel grateful and appreciate this doctor’ surgery team❤️
    How lucky we are when we were born with a normal body, didn’t have to undergo a mass of terrible pains while separating.
    Please do not feel pessimistic because of not being hot trend or less attractive and Do not take what we’ve already possessed for granted!

  • agree. It is very primitive of these medical professionals to be calling her a parasite instead of calling her a baby. They don’t call them twins, they call it one baby with two heads. There is clearly two babies with two functioning brains. One unfortunately has no heart and is living off the blood supply of the other. If she was also born with a heart then they would probably try to keep both alive. Unfortunately, one would have had a very sad existence and was probably better off dead anyway but they could have at least acknowledged that it was too a baby and that there were two babies.

  • Mably some body can make a robotic machine for the “paricite” with a artificial stomach,lung and heart and disposal waste. It possible BUT it would use a lot of power. I feel sad mow

  • I mean, people in this comment section are more focused on how they referred to the other twin and not the fact that this child survived!? Get over yourself, please. This was 2005, social justice warriors didn’t exist yet.

  • This is why I dont have sex with my sister. Well, I don’t have a sister (unfortunately) but if I did, I would look for someone else to marry.

  • You gotta respect surgeons after seeing this kinda stuff. Imagine doing a surgery with expections of success less then 10%. Everything’s against them, yet they keep doing it for 30+ hours. Those people are heros

  • People just love to hate Oprah ���� even the mother cudnt believe it why U forcing empathy when in yo own lives wouldn’t know how to react and stop acting like she insulted the baby!!

  • Really unbelievable and amazing work by the surgeons. I remember the initial story of these two twins from awhile ago, and I recall that they said it was totally unthinkable that they could ever be separated. And now they’ve been seperated?? Incredible.

    I can understand the surgeons frustration and regret though. It’s probably not a nice feeling to have knowing a decision you made caused a stroke in the healthier twin. But it was because of him that they are still alive, and now able to live more normal(and certainly independent) lives. I hope he knows that.

  • @naenaebabii21 Exactly, it kinda makes me mad that they end up always being seen, and heard, and some people “pay” to visit and see their children, the only thing “special” is that some of them are practically mutants = _ =

  • What an amazing work by the doctors! Great professionals!

    The “English” parents of the “English” kids spoke brilliant English language!

  • It looks like they would’ve been better off leaving it alone now there gonna grow up and not be able to do anything for themselves

  • !just do it. Start thinking of something you really really want because this is astounding. The person who sent this said their wish came true 10 minutes after they read the mail so I thought what the heck! You have just been visited by Dr. Suess’s cat in the hat, he will grant you one wish make your wish when the countdown is over 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 MAKE A WISH! send this to 10 videos within the hour you read this. If you do your wish will come true

  • Brilliant surgery as all these Surgeons & nurses successfully separated these 2 Babies. Yes as Christians we apply The Good Samaritan principal to all People of all races & religions Luke 10: 25 37 We Praise The Lord for this brilliant surgery

  • Wow this was a very insensitive interview. Not only because Oprah kept referring to baby Islaam as a parasitic head but bc her body langue showed her weirded out disgust. She avoided looking at the mother and baby.
    And why did they laugh at the mother’s expressed desire for Manar to be a doctor one day?? Shame on Oprah AND the audience.

  • imagine she unwillingly flying once again all the way from Egypt to the US to visit Opera for nothing. It must be hard for her and the delicate baby. This interview was disturbing

  • I searched ‘Addiction’ on YouTube to listen to a song by Dope, then it didn’t pop up but I saw ‘My strange addiction’ or something like that, couldn’t stop watching those, and then ended up here.. the fuck is this

  • People need to look up what Parasite means..Islam was a parasite because she was sucking the life out of her sibling thus about to kill them both. It’s sad but true

  • “First of all, welcome” she says as she welcomes herself to get close and adjust the baby’s blanket without even asking the mom’s permission. Just so she can expose the operated side of the baby’s head to the audience and camera. Ew

  • Imagine the poor baby growing up and seeing this video and seeing what could have been her sibling but was probably thrown away and called a head:(

  • ?So what happened to the other baby? Did he die so they had to do the operation to remove him? Or did they kill him to save the other baby? And while he was here how did he eat and poo? Did he not eat at all? How was he able to survive?

  • Gosh…the other baby was a complete human he just couldn’t develop properly…and I think its not fair to call him a “parasite” or the head…

  • It is unbelievable what these doctors have done, separation of co-joined twins is usually a high risk surgery in which many patients have died, I still remember one history about it i once heard here in youtube

  • Oprah no disrespect but….it’s not ok to touch someone else’s baby to remove their covering for others to view. Ask the mother and if she contents she will remove the head scarf herself. That made me uncomfortable. I’m sure there was no Ill intent but it was deinately an over step of a mother’s boundaries.

  • Anyone else hate that they’re calling the baby with no limbs an it instead of a name. The baby deserved a name to and a chance to live if they could look to find one.

  • Again, the Constitution mentions “people born,” not the contents of a womb, at any stage of development.
    As far as I’m concerned, the only one who has the right to decide whether a pregnancy continues is the one who’s pregnant. It’s her body, her decision.

  • Not sure why this showed up on my newsfeed. But what a vile and inhumane way for billionaire Oprah to describe a poor innocent baby as a parasite. So saddened by the lack of empathy and respect shown for life in all its forms. Bless the baby’s brave soul x

  • Poor little baby. It must have been awful for her family to go through all this pain and worry. It is unbelievable that the head of the clinic first decided to do the operation for free and than made a media circus out of it. This child has been treated as a freak. How can educated people such as surgeons do this? The father had to find out about his daughter by seeing a picture in a local paper. This is disgusting. All the clinic was thinking about was how much fame they would make and how much money they could gain. The family seems never to be informed or asked anything about their feelings. Also the fact that the great mufti had to give his ok to go on with the churgery is unbelievable. its the decision of the parents and the doctors, no religion is involved. If you want to take religion in the process, maybe one can ask why their precious god made this awful mistake? First he gives them a sickly child and then they are going to thank them for a solution that man has made possible. What a joke.

  • Im sorry how can doctors stomach watching pieces of the human being like skulls and stuff and 1. Not throwing up 2. Not killing the person these people are truly amazing

  • These doctors are indistutable geniuses, but it really concerns me, are those twins alright after operation, the difference of their look before and after operation really bothers me, seems like part of brains were damaged duting operation, hope they will live a normal life without any mental issues, can someone tell me if this would change in time?

  • aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…. large inhale… aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  • I feel so bad for both babies. That is horrible they acted as if the baby without a body wasn’t human. They wouldn’t acknowledge her as human! The other baby wasn’t a condition or a parasite! She was a baby! She died!

  • @reneinehv wow take a chill pill my friend!! what the hell life has done to you to be such a miserable person? not loved enough or not taken care of? I feel like i’m responding to some psycho who wants to commit suicide after killing as much people as he can!! gross..oh you do have a black heart and I respect your opinion but you should respect that every one in this world deserve to live, the world isn’t involved about you!!

  • Lol Im sorry for laughing, its sad it really is, but i wonder….. if you were to break the conjoined twins leg would Rishabh feel it?

  • I really wish people would start taking fertility treatments more seriously and understand the very high percentage of risk involved with it. This really could have been prevented. Some people just want children (selfishly) at whatever cost. I’ve seen people who just insist on taking it all into their own hands. Science is wonderful, but sometimes I wish people would check in more with themselves and really make better decisions. There could have been another way. But of course no one brings that up. Yet it’s a very valid point. The fact that it happened for me just shows that the powers that be are trying to teach us to be more careful with these types of decisions. Human cause so much pain and needless destruction on this planet. RIP to these two beautiful HUMAN souls! And yes it’s obvious the baby’s died at 2 from the brain infection but I beg to say she died a little over the course of two years mourning her sister she prob had no idea why she was taken from her. Just horrible and could have been prevented.

  • this was double speak we hear so much today to avoid calling life a life. a baby is a human from the moment its own DNA is formed.

  • the way she address the other baby the PARASITIC BABY, is so wrong, it is still a human being, just not fully develope, i know shes famous but this is a NO NO NO, this is so disrespectful

  • so sad they’ve just killed the other child and don’t even care about him, he was a a person too, he had a brain he could smile, cry, drink, be scared happy and everything, it just didn’t have a fully formed body, I’ve seen plenty of people without libs don’t mean they are not people, don’t know I feel sad whenever they call him parasitic twin instead of knowledge that he was a living being

  • Oprah! What a racist woman I’m shocked she even has a picture of the white baby!! Oprah hates white people!!! God bless America ����!!!!Oprah is pathetic!!!

  • Please stop worrying about oprah’s use of correct terminology.

    I’m more worried about the fact that flew these people all the way from egypt just to be on her show for 5 minutes.

  • The second baby had her own personality and was aware! it’s awful to refer to her as a parasite! she was a conjoined twin who couldn’t survive on her own. very sad story.

  • I’m sorry, but this is why I’m pro choice. This is so sad. More than sad, devastating. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone. Could you imagine being a baby innocent unknowing why this incredible pain and confusion and risk of death and inevitable future of more pain…

  • حمادة والمصري اكرهكم كرها ليس له متيل انتم شفارة لم تساعدوني انتم.دمرتوني لا تساعدوني ابتعدوا مني و من حياتي او سادبحكم يوما ما اكرهكم

  • Did Islam have any awareness? I saw she can blink and suckle so I really wonder if she had senses and was able to process her world her around her

  • The definition of parasite explains that your conjoined but feeding or solely surviving on the other twin which the other twin was. She was conscious yes but only survived by essentially killing both of them.

  • Imagine having tinnitus that, instead of a ringing noise, it’s a CRYING BABY, all day all night, all day all night..! AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Isn’t the sucking behavior and faces, a brain stem function? So, just how conscience is the parasitic twin? So, in theory, the second baby would’ve been the same even if she hadn’t had a brain.

  • both beautiful sweet girls so sad she was up moving so sad she passed away her eyes were so bright they are both beautiful sweet little baby’s god bless sweet girls….

  • The parasitic baby was definitely conscious. However it didn’t have any internal organs and no chance of survival.. think of quality of life.

  • ISIS, BOKO haram, and other Terrorist group all fight to kill Science, but fail to acknowledge that Science has saved more lives than their stupid mission

  • What really fucks with my head is the fact that Islaam is conscious. Imagine what it would be like to not have to eat or breathe, but still actually be there…

  • They killed Islam, weird to say that bc of the name but they literally killed the other baby. In my eyes that was horrible, it was amazing to me. I wish they worked harder on keeping both alive. Realized they were born that way for a reason. You could tell they had completely different personalities which was so interesting.

  • I wouldn’t be able to keep a child like this… and once I would have learned they were stuck together I probably would have asked for a abortion..

  • I feel bad for the other baby. it’s not a parasite. she’s just an unfortunate baby. She has emotions. It shouldn’t be just Manar. it’s them.

  • I can’t stand Oprah, she’s so disrespectful…like who calls a baby that didn’t develop right, “a parasite.” Dumb woman. With all the money she’s got maybe she should go back to school & learn a bit. She make black woman look bad.

  • Today i meet with a family member of this twins!
    They belong to KP Province of Pakistan and it’s surgery was done in England.
    He told me the whole story how we reach England and he say who support us in this difficult moment i realize and finally i want to write that
    “Humanity never dies, People are still alive that cooperate with each other and saving humanity”
    This 17 surgeries lost more than 10M dollars.
    Love you people of England
    Love you England. Long Live England. Thanks Brilliant Doctors.
    #LongLiveEngland #BrilliantDoctors #TheyPracticallySaveHumanity

  • For some reason it is hurting my heart to hear Islaam called a second head. I feel like she was her own person and now she isn’t with us. I totally understand the fact that both babies would have died without that surgery and they had to save the viable one, but she was still a child.

  • It says “persons born,” not “persons.”
    I didn’t miss it. I wrote: “I can’t find anything to corroborate that.”
    According to dictionaryDOTreferenceDOTcom:
    fetus: “Origin: 1350–1400; Middle English < Latin fētus bringing forth of young, hence that which is born, offspring, young still in the womb..." So, the word has been around longer than you indicated, and it's usage has changed over the centuries, as is true of many other words. So what?

  • Guys it’s not a parisite it’s another kid it was suppose to be twins until there heads got callapsed inside the stomach and got stuck together

  • @reneinehv oh really? then who did create them? and btw these twins are egyptians not indian, epic fail!! anyway I didn’t ask you to believe in god but you should respect the fact that every person deserves to be alive no matter how sick he or she is.. and you won’t understand such a thing.. narrow-minded people like you think disabled kids should die, however people like me think that you’re the one who is disabled with a black heart.. I feel sorry for you

  • This is brilliant work, I appreciate the tiresome hard work done by the doctors to save the life of these twins but all was Grace of God without Him nothing could be successful! I’m over the moon to see the twins regain their freedom.

  • Why do some people bring religion inthis.. this is purely science allah has got nothing to do with.. seriously one should have the knwledg of science…

  • This is sad, extremely sad. The head of the undeveloped baby may be conscious and alive but is completely reliant on the fully developed baby. It’s not a ‘fair’ situation but they cannot simply let the head live with the child.  

  • My granddaughters and I watched this, I can’t begin to tell you the joy I have for this family. No one wants to see their child suffer and be ridiculed for something they have no control of. I thank God for the doctors that gave his family hope and that performed the surgery. I wonder how they are doing today. Thank you for sharing your story. God Bless.

  • I’m here because i saw that 2 girls with one head
    And i was like is it possible to split there head and everything will ho alright and great
    Or they’ll stuck together forever
    But thank god
    There’s a way
    I feel better

  • From London Brixton, this is just amazing. Wishing the little ones a happy recovery, big blessing to the team of doctors,nurses. xxx

  • OMG, I saw this at my grandma’s house when I was pretty little, and I really didn’t want to watch this. But she wouldn’t change the channel for the world, and wouldn’t stop complaining about the images. XD

    Watching again to see how it ends.

  • I hate people calling the abnormal twin it. Its a baby and you cut her off of the other baby and you dont even try to give her a name. I consider cutting off a living baby from another living baby murdering.

  • Ha Ha you’ll be the laughing stock of YouTube for that! YOU are the “dumb arse” as Africa is NOT in Europe. I happen to know that because I’m English and we are in Europe. (Do you have any idea where England is?) I expect you are American, as we know they don’t educate their kids very well. Go look at a globe, you TWIT

  • I’m on your side but there are rare occasions where abortion is acceptable like if the child where to be born in a way that puts the mother at risk of death or rape victims (debatable)

  • I feel so bad for both of them, this is so depressing and should never be wished upon a baby. But if the other twin is effecting the well developed one then it’s either they both die or one of them die. I’m sorry I would have loved them both if they were like my sisters but it would break my heart even more if they both die. At least save one of them.

  • This mother had no choice but I’m sure it did hurt the mother which is why they where using that word. Others find their way to coop with their trauma

  • First of all I’m not an American and I’m against the strategies of Foreign Policies of the US Government.Talking about the attack and occupation of countries!!!But it’s strange to me that everyone,curse and hate the”Evil”USA but when there’s a surgical procedure or medical treatment they always use the US to save their Citizen’s lives!!!

  • I hope your friend doesn’t know you think he’s not a person simply because he’s a carpenter.
    I didn’t say the Constitution says anything about fetuses. I said it refers to “persons born.”
    I can’t find anything to corroborate that.
