Cuttack: Since there is no improvement in the health condition of the Nayagarh conjoined twins Ganga-Jamuna and their early critical stage does not allow for the risk to be undertaken, their operation of separation like the Kandhamal conjoined twins Jaga-Kalia is not possible at present.

This was revealed at a press meet covened by Sishu Bhavan Superintendent Dr Saroj Satpathy.

Besides him, Dr Manoj Patnaik, HOD, Cardio Surgery, SCB informed, “The twins are being nasal-fed as they are unable to take oral feeding. They are regularly on saline as well as oxygen. Other medicines are also administered when their condition deteriorates.”

“At present no improvement is being observed. We’ve sustained it. Kids like them having critical statistics in their vital organs rarely survive. Except individual brain as they are sharing all other vital organs, chance of survival is less. They are having lots of cardiac anamolies. Even their operation is also very risky and cumbersome,” he explained.

Dr Manoj Patnaik, HOD, Cardio Surgery, SCB informed, “If we venture into operation at this critical and early stage, it is extremely dangerous.”

In his reactions, father of the conjoined twins Ashok Kumar Rath said, “The doctors say that their condition is bad, but today it has improved. However, doctors say that their condition is not so good. I’m witness to it as I’ve seen that they are unable to survive without oxygen. However, the doctors are still on their concerted efforts.”

“I’m hopeful that at least one of them would survive. If the doctors try out, both may survive. If referred outside, I’m even ready to go there,” the anxious father stated.
