There are very rare cases when some newborn babies suffer from life-threatening abnormalities. Conjoined twins cases often develop once in two hundred thousand births.
Tinashe and Tinotenda were suffering from the problem where they were connected to the stomach. It is more difficult for them to cure their problem because they were born in Zimbabwe where there aren’t much of facilities available.
The Canadian doctors helped the parents of the conjoined twins by taking them to Toronto’s Hospital.
It is very risky to separate a conjoined twin because there is a very less survival rate for them. Tinashe and Tinotenda had a 5 to 25 percent rate of survival chance so the operation was a matter of death and life situation.
The surgery was conducted in March 2005 and even though they were very less chance of survival the surgery went shockingly successful.
Now, Tinashe and Tinotenda are 12 years old living a healthy life with no side effects.
It’s indeed a great miracle for both of these boys surviving a life-threatening operation and the parents of these two twin boys are living a happy life.
