Twin sisters conjoined at heart and liver survive separation procedure against all odds


Savannah and Scarlett were born conjoined at the heart and liver in April in Gainsville, Florida.

Less than five percent of conjoined twins survive their first 24 hours and doctors gave the sisters almost not chance at all. 

Surgeons practiced the separation procedure on a 3D printed conjoined heart for eight weeks before attempting to operate on the girls.

And against all odds both girls survived separation surgery and are now almost ready to go home with mother Jacquelyn, father Mark and their three-year-old sister.
