Siamese twin’s condition remains precarious

The condition of Michal Mueller, one of the Slovak conjoined twins who was separated on September 15, has not changed in the last 24 hours, contradictory to information published on the website of the Children’s Teaching Hospital in Bratislava.

The twins, Miško and Marek, were born on April 11, 2007, and underwent surgery to separate them after they developed respiratory problems. The procedure lasted 19 hours and caused complications that Marek eventually died of on October 4. Miško’s prognosis was better from the beginning, but he has recently developed digestive problems.
