The North Texas Lead Doctors Separate Conjoined Twins After an 11-Hour Surgery: The US FDA Joins the WHO to Investigate Contaminated Syrups Responsible for Children’s Deaths

US surgeons receive praise for successfully separating three-month-old conjoined twins. In the Live breaking news today, it took 11 hours to separate the twins, JamieLynn Rae Finley and AmieLynn Rose, in a hospital in North Texas. 

Amanda Arciniega and James Finley were surprised to learn that they will have twins in 2022, according to the available information. They also learned from their physician that their babies are conjoined. 

Arciniega said they were quiet when returning home. Of course, it is also sad news, and they feel bad that it happened to them like that. The two daughters shared a common liver and were joined at the abdomen. Before giving birth, the couple was in touch with specialists based at Cook Children’s Medical Center to ensure safe delivery. They also discussed ways of separating omphalopagus twins.

The physician, Dr. Jose Iglesias at Cook Children’s Hospital, said the conjoined twins possess a distinct anatomy. According to the Medical Director (Pediatric Surgery), the birth of conjoined twins is full of surprises. One of them will be reserved, and the other may be a little feisty. 

Over 50 doctors are engaged in separating omphalopagus twins

The eleven-hour surgery involved the cooperation of more than fifty doctors, anesthesiologists, and nurses. All the staff worked actively and carefully to separate the conjoined twins. The surgery on one baby has been completed, while the wounds on the other baby have not yet healed. 

The doctors said it took 11 hours on January 23, 2023, to complete the surgery, and Jaimelynn and Aimelynn are now moved out of the operation theater and resting on their beds. The physicians and family members shared happy moments after a successful surgery. Until now, both girls spent their lives in the hospital, but now they will lead happy life. The physicians will closely monitor the twins through their teenage years.

The US FDA collaborates with WHO to investigate the causes of over 300 children’s deaths

The deaths of more than 300 children in Africa and Asia due to the administration of contaminated syrup for the treatment of coughs will be investigated by the WHO, the US FDA, and other international organizations. According to the latest BNN world news, cough syrups are believed to be contaminated with ethylene glycol and diethylene glycol, which are harmful to humans. WHO found and announced information about these contaminated cough syrups on October 5, 2022. 

Acute kidney disease is the leading cause of death in children under the age of five. The US FDA said it has no evidence of these cough syrups entering the US at that time. Haryana, India-based Maiden Pharmaceuticals Limited has manufactured these products, including Magrip N Cold Syrup, Makoff Baby Cough Syrup, Kofexmalin Baby Cough Syrup, and Promethazine Oral Solution, which are found to be contaminated and have caused the deaths of children.

The US FDA does not indicate products described by the WHO in 2023 and 2022 have entered the US drug chain. However, the regulator is engaged in identifying the impact of this hazard. The regulator said it has put in place strict controls on products manufactured using sorbitol solution, maltitol solution, propylene glycol, glycerin, and polyethylene glycol.
