Dr. Reuben pedia- trician for the girls, told a news conference Wednesday a final "rehearsal" will be held Satur- day. Doctors and staff have had several conferences on the oper- ation procedure. "We have every hope of sepa- rating them so they can live healthy, normal he said. The twins, bom Oct. 28, are joined by a small band of tissue between the bottom of the breastbone and the navel. How- ever, the doctor said the surgi- cal team is confident almost all the body systems are separate. "I don't think the operation Itself is a particularly difficult one. It's (he uniqueness of the case itself that makes it seem so." The operation will take about three hours, Dr. Weinberg said. Two sets of general surgeons will operale, two doctors to each twin. A specialist in chest surgery and a plastic surgeon will be on hand, as well as Dr. Weinberg and the doctor who delivered the babies. There also will be two anes- thesiologists, several nurses and laboratory technicians. In all, there will be about 20 persons involved in the opera- tion. MAKE SPECIAL SUPPORTS Dr. Weinberg showed the news conference special sup- ports made to hold the twins in position for the operalion. The baby-sized supports are shaped like facing letters Rs. The babies will be bound onto the supports securely, so they can be lifted onto separate tables, each with her own team, after they are separated. The operation to close the wounds will be carried out in separate operating rooms. Dr. Weinberg said the proce- dure, including the use of the H-shaped supports, is the same as has been used in operations to separate Siamese twins in the past. It is similar to one performed lest April in Toronto to separate Heather and Kriston, Canada's only surviving conjoint twins. The Toronto twins, now eight months old and healthy, also were joined face-to-face at the abdomen. But Dr. Weinberg said Cyn- thia and Christine do not have as large a band joining them. TISSUE .JOINS LIVERS There likely is a small band of liver tissue joining the two livers, but Dr. Weinberg said the surgeons are reasonably certain each child has its own complete liver system. There is a possibility some part of the breastbone may be shared by the twins, 'which will make the operation more diffi- cult. The possibility that there is a common chest cavity also exists. Dr. John Bead, tospital ad- ministrator, said cost of the op- c r a t i o n might be "around but most of this is "hidden" costs that are part of the hospital's regular budget for staff, eouipment and so on. The fees to the doctors involved will be paid under the Alberta Medi- cal Care Insurance Plan, but that would not cover prepara- tion time for the operation. Asked why the twins are not being sent to Toronlo to the team that performed the sur- gerv last April, Dr. Weinhers said all the necessary surgical. experts arc here as well. "There are no specialists lor siamesc-twin o p e r at ion s." added Dr. Bernard Snell. medi- cal director of the hospital. He said Siamese twins are bom only about once in every to births.
