The seventh edition of this acclaimed operative atlas continues to provide a unique level of comprehensive detail on the full range of conditions presented in childhood, including the fetus and neonate, that can be treated by surgical means.
With an international list of authors, the chapters have been updated and complemented by the high quality artwork that has established this operative guide as the standard reference for the paediatric surgeon. This new edition retains the format of initial principles and justification for the procedure, followed by preoperative investigations and preparation, the operative procedure, and postoperative management. New chapters have been added on the latest techniques such as minimal invasive surgery, robotic surgery and single orifice laparoscopic surgery. The chapters are arranged in eight sections, with each section emphasising the overall management of patients, tricks of the trade of individual authors and discussion of technical and clinical judgement. With this new and updated edition, Operative Pediatric Surgery remains the pre-eminent operative guide to a full range of paediatric conditions.
