KalingaTV News Network

Cuttack: The medical test reports of conjoined twins of Nayagarh district, Ganga and Jamuna revealed yesterday that the twins share a single heart and liver, posing a bigger challenge for doctors treating the babies.

Citing the findings of the medical tests, Cuttack Sishu Bhawan Superintendent Saroj Satpathy informed on Monday that the CT scan and ECG findings point at the existence of a single heart with certain congenital defects in the twins.

While the condition of the babies are not stable and they have been kept in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of the Sishu Bhawan, a few more medical tests are pending on them before doctors could take a call to prepare a conclusive report said Satpathy.

Born to Kishor and Sumitra Dutta of Sarankul village of Nayagarh district on December 1 at a private hospital, the twins were shifted to Cuttack Sishu Bhawan in the same evening. After visiting the hospital on Sunday, State Health and Family Welfare Minister Pratap Jena assured the couple to bear all medical expenses of the twins’ treatment. He also announced that if necessity arises, the babies will be provided treatment in hospitals located outside the state .
