Twin girls who shared parts of their brain tissue, skull and blood flow were finally separated by a group of 16 surgeons and nurses in Australia this week.

The insanely fragile procedure took 25 hours, with plastic surgeons finishing up the job by reconstructing the sisters’ skulls roughly five hours post-surgery.

Doctors are still unsure if the 2-year-old girls, Krishna and Trishna, endured any brain damage during the operation. However, a member of the surgical team said the twins were showing definite signs of improvement Tuesday as their bodies began to function individually. (Fox News)
