Did you know...

Did you know that Pygopagus conjoined twins account for 17% of conjoined twins?

We have recently posted vol.18 no.1 of East and Central African Journal of Surgery on Bioline. The case study "Successful surgical separation of conjoined twins: First experience in Rwanda" by Nyundo et al. details the first successful separation of Pygopagus conjoined twins in Rwanda. Pygopagus conjoined twins are "joined back-to-back, facing away from each other". The article includes photos and details about the procedure, as well as more background information about conjoined twins.
