Swiss doctors have separated eight-day-old conjoined twin sisters fused at the liver and chest — the youngest ever successfully separated, a Swiss paper reported Sunday.

Five surgeons, assisted by two nurses and six anaesthesiologists, carried out the successful, five-hour operation last month to separate the tiny identical twins, the Le Matin Dimanche weekly reported.

Maya and Lydia were born at Bern hospital two months prematurely along with their triplet sister Kamilla on December 2.

The two were joined by the liver and the chest.
