SEPARATED BY HISTORY - MAKING
Chicago: The Brodie Boys, Roger and
Rodney, Siamese twins of Moline Ill., shown here being fed some
months ago, have been separated by an unprecedented 12-hour, 40
minute operation at The University of Illinois Educational and
research Hospital, Dec. 17. Late reports said the
15-month-old twins were in critical condition after the long
session of surgery.
The twins had been joined at the
top of their heads and the separation was the first successful one
of its kind in medical history.
