Cuttack:4/12/17; Monday evening brought a heart wrenching news for thousands of well-wishers of the conjoined twin of Nayagarh-Ganga and Jamuna. The twins, admitted to Sishu Bhavan here are born with a single heart and liver.

Doctors at the SCB have confirmed this after conducting a series of tests. After preliminary diagnosis, the medical team had informed that if any of the vital organs are fused, it would be difficult to separate them.

“The CT Scan shows that the two share one heart and one liver and there is a strong suspicion that the heart is not functioning properly. It may be defective,” Paediatrics HoD at Sishu Bhavan, Prof Saroj Kumar Satpahy said.

The conjoined twins are under conservative management and all essential supportive care is being provided to them at the ICU of the sick newborn care unit.
