Abstract

In utero diagnosis of conjoined twins by ultrasonography compels physicians and parents early in the pregnancy to make decisions concerning possible surgical separation and the alternative of pregnancy termination. The case reports presented offer additional information for physicians and parents to make informed decisions at a crucial time by illustrating long-term physical and psychological outcomes of 14 surgical survivors.
