Abstract

We describe the anesthetic considerations during urgent complete separation of newborn premature omphalopagus conjoined twins. Separation was performed in the first 24 hours of life owing to small bowel obstruction in both infants, as well as a shared omphalocele. The preoperative preparation, as well as anesthetic implications of organ system immaturity and cross- circulation, is described.
