孕婦腦死 4個月後奇蹟誕龍鳳胎

巴西一名21歲孕婦法蘭克蘭(Frankielen da Silva Zampoli Padilha),去年10月腦死,醫生發現她肚子裡的兩個胎兒仍然有心跳,於是細心照料,直到她腦死的第123天後,才進行剖腹手術,取出7個月大的龍鳳胎。雖然這名母親死亡,但仍然帶來兩個新生命。

送去醫院時已腦死

《紐約郵報》報導,法蘭克蘭和丈夫帕蒂爾哈(Muriel Padilha)結婚6年,育有一個兩歲的女兒。帕蒂爾哈表示,去年10月,妻子抱怨頭很痛,結果送去醫院時已腦死。

據悉,醫生發現法蘭克蘭除了腦部之外,所有器官像活着一樣還在運作,因此決定為她保持生命,並拯救胎兒。醫生每天在監控她的身體資訊,醫護人員也前來撫摸這名母親的腹部,隔着肚皮和胎兒說話,讓他們感受到無法從母親那裡獲取的愛。

在今年2月,龍鳳胎已7個月大,但醫生做手術取出嬰兒,先出生的是姐姐,體重1360克,弟弟重1270克。龍鳳胎經過悉心照顧後,逐漸正常發育。

Their father, Muriel Padilha, 24, spoke to Caters this week of how his wife, Frankielen da Silva Zampoli Padilha, 21, died during pregnancy in October last year after suffering a stroke. He told how doctors took the ground-breaking decision to save the nine-week-old embryos after their little hearts continued to beat in their mothers womb as they battled against the odds to stay alive. The bereft husband, who was heartbroken by the loss his wife but overjoyed with the birth of Asaph and Anna Vitoria, described his childrens birth as a miracle. SEE CATERS COPY.
