“The baby was given general anaesthesia and the torso and trunk of the parasitic twin – which had two arms but no head or heart – was detached from the host baby. “Then we also detached the lower limbs of the parasitic twin from the host, which included disarticulating the right and left lower limbs as they were attached by the joints. “We controlled the bleeding and fashioned skin flaps to close the resulting wound.”
