Op to remove baby's second head

Doctors have operated successfully to remove a second head from a 10-month-old baby.

Manar Maged was originally one of conjoined identical twins, but her sister failed to develop in the womb.

 

As a result she was born with a second head attached to her own - a condition known as craniopagus parasiticus.

 

Manar, who was otherwise healthy, underwent a 13-hour operation at Benha Children's Hospital, Cairo, on Saturday. She is reported to be stable.

 

Doctors said the second head was capable of smiling and blinking - but not of independent life.

 

The weight of it meant that although Manar developed normally, she could not sit or crawl.

 

A 13-strong team operated on Manar, separating her brain from the conjoined organ in small stages.

 

Shared blood vessel

 

Surgery was complex, as the conjoined head shared a blood vessel with Manar's brain.

 

The surgeons had to cut off the blood supply to Manar's head without triggering a potentially fatal surge of blood to Manar's heart.

Following surgery, Manar could move all four limbs and showed no signs of paralysis.

 

She is breathing normally and has a normal heartbeat and blood pressure.

 

However, Dr Abla al-Alfi, senior consultant at the hospital's neonatal intensive care unit, said there was concern about the baby's liver, which had not functioned normally since the surgery.

 

Manar is likely to remain in intensive care for another week while doctors carefully monitor her progress.

 

Similar surgery was attempted on a girl in the Dominican Republic last year. However, the child died.

That first pic looks photoshopped to hell.

 

*Look at the shadow on the 'head'. It looks like its being cast on a wall directly behind them, but that's the floor. Also, the girl's shadow is nowhere to be seen. Almost like someone pasted the head on and added a drop shadow...

imagine if the child died and only the head stayed alive blinking and smiling for 72 years

If it's a known condition it must have happened before... come on now people, use your second heads.

it's far too small to call whether it's fake or not. if you're judging it's authenticity on a drop shadow alone without seeing what it actually is in the backround (a table, the floor...?), you're really clutching at straws

these days i am doing a ton of research on genetics, using fish as a model. these females produce hundreds of eggs, so at this point i've dealt with thousands upon thousands of embryos.

 

in one instance, i saw a fish, which was produced from normal fish parents with no genetic alterations, develop with two heads. it lived for a few days.

this happens sometimes, and occasionally, they survive into adulthood.

 

there are an incredible number of things that have to go right to produce a healthy human baby. after studying biology, i am amazed there aren't more weird ass mutations running around out there.

 

 

that being said, the picture does look funky.
