The prior edition of this ebook was based on a simple but important philosophy: provide a practical and latest resource for the practicing surgeon detailing the particular needs and special considerations surrounding the surgical care of children. Fundamentals of Pediatric Surgery 2nd Edition (PDF) stays true to the philosophy of the original with many significant enhancements. As well as encompassing the latest and practical clinical information for the experienced surgeon written in a direct narrative style; each chapter offers a rationale for the proposed approach based on the scientific evidence available in the literature and the author’s personal clinical experience; provides a detailed algorithm or clinical protocol in a graphic format; starts a discussion regarding unanswered questions and suggestions for future studies; and includes a list of suggested readings. Chapters include in great detail a wide range of pediatric general surgery topics; including congenital anomalies presenting in the newborn period; disorders of all major organ systems of the abdomen and thorax; and a number of maladies germane to the growing field of fetal surgery. The authors also offer authoritative discussions of therapeutic methods and surgical techniques that range from the customary to the modern; including time-honored open operations; contemporary minimally invasive interventions; and developing technologies such as robotic and single-site surgery. Written by professionals in the field; Fundamentals of Pediatric Surgery 2e is a definitive source of readily available clinical information that fellows; residents; or attending surgeons can use to take care of actual patients in real-time.
