Successful Separation Surgery of Conjoined Twins at Texas Children's

After only 10 months of living conjoined, Knatalye Hope and Adeline Faith Mata, twin girls born in April 2014, underwent a successful separation surgery on February 17 at Texas Children’s Hospital. A team of more than 26 clinicians including 12 surgeons, six anesthesiologists and eight surgical nurses, among others, worked together to separate the girls who shared a chest wall, lungs, pericardial sac, diaphragm, liver, intestines, colon and pelvis.

"This surgery was not without its challenges, with the girls sharing several organ systems. Our team has been preparing for this surgery for months, and we've done everything from working with our radiology experts to build a 3D model of their organs, to conducting simulations of the actual separation surgery," said Dr Darrell Cass, FAAP, pediatric surgeon and co-director of Texas Children's Fetal Center. Dr Cass is a member of the AAP Section on Surgery.
