Surgery for eight-limbed toddler


A large team of doctors in Bangalore operated on a toddler to remove extra limbs from a partially developed, conjoined twin. The girl, two years old, was joined at the pelvis by another pelvis and arms, but no head. Surgeons removed the extra limbs and transferred a kidney from the twin to Lakshimi in a marathon effort that took about 27 hours. The girl has been given an 80% chance of survival.

A scan of her skeleton is shown below.
