Conjoined 15-month-old twins attached at the pelvis and sharing three legs have been successfully separated.
Muaiman and Muaimin Azli were separated at Kuala Lumpur Hospital, Malaysia, in a 24-hour operation involving a 60-strong medical team, including 19 surgeons and anaethetists.
"With proper rehabilitation, both boys can lead a fairly normal and independent life," said Zakaria Zahari, the head of the paediatric surgery has said.
He said the case was the hospital's most complex so far because the twins shared genitalia and a bladder.
Both boys are in a stable condition following the July 14 operation. Muaimin will get a prosthetic leg, while Muaiman will keep both of his legs.
Their dad, mechanic Azli Sabran, 40, said: "I feel so relieved. I could not sleep well before the surgery as I was so worried.
"For now, I'm just glad that they are safe."
The twins are the 14th conjoined pair to be separated at the hospital and the 21st in the country.
