Abstract

Anesthetic management of the conjoined twins in the radiology suite presents some unique problems for anesthesia. We report a case of 3-month and 10-day-old xiphopagus twins undergoing computed tomography scan under general anesthesia. The issues in their management in radiology included the unknown effects of anesthetic agents on circulation because of sharing of organs, duplication of staff, equipment in a limited space, placing the children on the scan table, airway control and ventilator management, and changeover of equipment during procedure.
