Diagnosing the presence of Siamese twins is relatively simple after the first trimester of pregnancy through an ultrasound, echocardiogram, MRI, and imaging studies that allow to identify the fetuses connective area and their organic physiology.
Subsequently, a fetal echocardiogram is a useful tool to establish treatment during pregnancy and after birth.
Each case of Siamese twins is unique, so the treatment to be followed will depend on where they are joined from, which organs they share, their health conditions, and other aspects that allow determining the feasibility of separation surgery.
