Safa and Marwa, the rare conjoined twins from Pakistan were successfully separated in Great Ormond Street Hospital, London. The twins were born by caesarian section in early January 2017 in Peshawar, Pakistan.

The two year old twins had undergone three major operations to separate their heads at the Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Safa and Marwa

They had their first operation at the age of just 19 months in October 2018.

This was a very rare case where the girls were craniopagus twins, with their skulls and blood vessels fused together. Craniopagus twins are those who will be fused at the cranium.

According to Britain’s National Health Service, one in every 2.5 million births produces conjoined twins and only 5% of them are fused at the head.

The hospital had previously separated craniopagus twins in 2006 and 2011, which was all successful.

The technology of virtual reality and 3D printing had been used in the surgery, for creating an exact model of the girls’ anatomy. This helped the doctors to view the complex structure of their skulls as well as the positioning of their brains and blood vessels.

Four major operations with a total time of 55 hours had been done in this medical case with about 100 medical staff included. Reports said that all the amount was funded by a private donor.

The girls were discharged from the hospital and sent with their mother Zainab and their grandfather Mohammad Sadat Hussain.

Accidents Health News

The life of Vincent Lambert (42), the severely brain-damaged French patient who became the centre of France’s right-to-die case, came to an end on Thursday.

His death occurred after the doctors removed his life supporting aids, says his family. Lambert had came up with a road accident in 2008 and had been suffering from severe brain damage after that accident. At the time of accident, he was just of age 32 and had recently become a father.

He was the subject of a long term legal war between his parents, who wanted to keep him alive, and his wife Rachel, who believes he should have the right to die with dignity.

“He is minimally conscious but he is not a vegetable”, said his mother. “Keeping him artificially alive and totally dependent? For him, that would be unacceptable”, said his wife.

The painless killing or so called Euthanasia is not legal in France. But the law allows the doctors to put the severely and terminally ill patients into deep sedation.

The issue of Lambert, apart from his own family, has been taken up by the whole country, with different opinions and street demonstrations.

His death was reportedly marked at 08:24 (06:24 GMT) on Thursday, nine days after his life aids were removed.

Germany and Netherlands are on toxic caterpillar infestations, whose tiny toxic hairs that spreads through wind causes severe allergic reactions and skin irritations in humans and pets.

This year’s mild winter and warm spring provided a good environment for the caterpillars to increase enormously in number. Firefighters, with flame torches and special vacuum cleaners, are trying to destroy nests of the invasive species, across Germany.

Late in July, these caterpillars are expected to turn into pupae and then the threat will be decreased.

The return of the Oak processionary moth caterpillars made the restaurants, swimming pools and schools across Germany to close.

The Western Ruhr region of Germany is a densely populated area and is severely affected by these caterpillars.

These caterpillars, of about 2-3cm (about one inch) are moving towards and spreading on the trees at night time. Specialists said that there will be around 700,000 hairs in a mature caterpillar, which will be spreading severely through winds. These contains an irritating toxin that causes itchy, blistering rashes, which may last for weeks.

Reports said that six people in the western city of Munster had to undergo eye operations to remove the caterpillar hair that got stuck on their corneas.

Amsterdam’s Red Light District is quite famous where prostitutes offers their “services”, from behind a window. These ‘Window displays’ may come to an end soon, as Amsterdam’s mayor Femke Halsema has announced options to radically revamp this Red light district, including closing down brothels in the city centre.

Halsema has been trying to implement new rules in the city’s sex trade in two decades. This includes the banning of sex workers called ‘window workers’, standing in window-fronted rooms.

Halsema said that these new modifications in rules are as a part of protecting sex workers from gawping tourists and to combat a rise in human trafficking.

The prostitution will not be banned completely, she said. To the medias, she said, “I think a lot of the women who work there feel humiliated, laughed at and that’s one of the reasons we are thinking about changing”. The prostitution was legalised by Dutch government in 2000.

Four major modifications will be considered to be implemented. This includes: shutting down of the city centre brothels and shifting them to another place, reducing the number of brothels, ending of window displays and and stepping up the window workers’ licensing.
