METHODS: We successfully separated one case of thoraco-omphalopagus conjoined twins, with one having d-transposition of the great arteries. After control of sepsis, the twin underwent an arterial switch and complete repair of her cardiac defect.
RESULTS: She made a full recovery and was discharged from the hospital 20 days after surgery.
CONCLUSION: Careful planning, skillful surgical separation and cardiac surgery by a combined medical and surgical team is the key to save the twins in such a rare case.
