Hoang Truc Nhi and Hoang Dieu Nhi undergo daily physical therapy at 2 p.m. at HCMC Children's Hospital. The twins, now 14 months old, used to be conjoined at the pelvis. They were classified Ischiopagus Tetrapus (Quadripus) conjoined twins for having a symmetrical continuous longitudinal axis with their area of union not broken anteriorly. If a pair of conjoined twins is born for every 200,000 births, only 6 percent are classified thus, doctors said. Around 100 doctors and nurses from major southern Vietnam hospitals participated in their separation surgery in July. Photo: VnExpress
