Abstract

We present a case of successful separation of craniopagus conjoined twins. The procedure was staged to permit each child to develop adequate independent cerebral venous drainage and to prevent deleterious, perioperative cerebral edema. Surgical hemorrhage, blood product delivery, and hemodilution were minimized.
