Management of ischiopagus twin separation with a focus on W–S incision design

Ischiopagus twins share parts of the spine, central nervous system, gastrointestinal and genitou-rinary tracts with various degrees of severity. Their separation is a surgical challenge. From the perspective of the plastic surgeon, one of the straightforward technical problems of conjoined twin separation is the coverage of the large residual parietal defects determined by the initial skin incisions.

This report provides a description of relevant incision design strategies for ischiopagus separation in order to minimize morbidity related to coverage issues, especially in the abdominal and perineal regions.

AVATAR MEDICAL’s technology allows medical professionals to explore fetal development in its intrauterine environment, to assess anomalies or malformations from different angles and to plan the best neonatal or perinatal care. The VR solution can also allow parents to better anticipate the birth of their newborn and their first encounter.
