Head of a medical surgical team that was successful in separating the Sudanese conjoined twins – Wadah and Ramah – in late October said on Sunday the two infants have left the intensive care unit, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Rabiah also described the twins’ situation as “stable and reassuring” and “there are no signs of any complications” after one week when his team conducted the surgery.

The operation took place in King Abdullah Specialist Hospital for Children in the capital Riyadh.

The Sudanese twins’ operation is number 42 in a series of successful surgeries separating Siamese twins in Saudi Arabia.
