Anaesthetic considerations for separation of omphalo-ischiopagus tripus twins.
This "Tripus Halleri" is still considered to be the normal appearance of the CT, [5] although many variations in patterns of the CT have been described.
Zita and Gita Rezahanovas had form of dicephalus tetrabrachius tripus. They were successfully separated in 2003 in Moscow.
(2008a, b, 2010a) basado en caracteres osteologicos, y a traves de un analisis de parsimonia global, se sugieren como sinapomorfias: el proceso de transformacion del tripus no extendido hacia el margen ventral del tercer centrum, claustrum sin apofisis osea, con una banda de cartilago sobre la base de los radios procurrentes y en ambos lobulos.
The three unambiguous synapomorphies supporting this clade C39 are: main bodies of parietals (or of parieto-extrascapulars) not widely separated from each other in dorsal view (60: 1 [right arrow] 0); presence of 'rudimentary tripus' (76: 0 [right arrow] 1; the condition in [dagger] Clupavus maroccanus is not clear); presence of 'rudimentary os suspensorium' (78: 0 [right arrow] 1; the condition in [dagger] Santanichthys diasii is not clear).

As dicephalus twins are always dipus (8), in our case it is tripus a very rare variety.
This clade is supported by a bootstrap value of 75% and by four unambiguous synapomorphies: presence of characteristic scaphium (69: 1 [right arrow] 2), intercalarium (72: 1 [right arrow] 2), tripus (76: 1 [right arrow] 2) and os suspensorium (78: 1 [right arrow] 2).
