Here are some background information about the combined twins.
Combined twins are physically connected to one another in one's body.
Combined twins occur once in every 200,000 live-born at Maryland University Medical Center.
About 70% of the combined twins are women.
The combined twins are identical – they are of the same sex.
The form of a mixed friendship refers to the point where twins are attached. The top five are most commonly known: thoracopagus (liver, liver, intestinal tract), omphalopagus (liver, bile, intestinal tract), pygopagus (back, rectum, urinary tract), ischiopagus (liver, liver, intestine, and kraniopagus (Mayon Clinic)
Researchers believe that united twins will develop from one fertilized egg that does not break apart completely by dividing it.
The term "siamese twins" was born in Eng and Chang Bunker, a group of twins who were born in Siam (now in Thailand) in 1811. They lived at the age of 63 and appeared at a fairy tale. Both Chang and Eng were married and had a total of 21 children with each other.
