Israeli Hospital Separates Dead Siamese Twin From Living Sibling

Although the operation is considered a success, the surviving twin is still fighting for his life. Only 150 such cases have been recorded in the past 126 years.

The first operation in Israel to separate a rare type of Siamese, or conjoined, twins was carried out in Haifa's Rambam Medical Center. Although one twin was stillborn and the second is fighting for his life, the operation on Monday is still being considered a success.
