Ervina and Prefina Bangalo, two beautiful baby girls who were born with their heads conjoined back-to-back have been successfully separated after a tough surgery.
A report by Medicalxpress.com sighted by YEN.com.gh indicates that separating twins who are fused back-to-back requires an exceedingly rare surgery for an equally rare congenital defect.
This made the surgery particularly challenging since the back of the head is a far more critical place for blood supply to the brain and drainage of blood away from it.

In the face of all the challenges the surgical procedure confronted them with, a team of 30 doctors and nurses at the Vatican's pediatric hospital in Italy went through an 18-hour surgery and successfully separated the girls.
The twins were born on 29 June 2018 in Mbaïki, Central African Republic, with their rare disorder that reportedly occurs once in every 2 million births.
It is indicated that the toddlers are recovering well a month after their third and definitive separation surgery on 5 June.
