The SAGES Manual of Pediatric Minimally Invasive Surgery; (PDF) provides a thorough and up-to-date review of this field. It is designed to be a useful resource for adult and pediatric surgeons at all stages of their careers who are interested in the application of minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat pediatric patients. In this ebook, we will take a look at the pediatric surgical conditions that can be treated at the present time using these approaches. Following an overview of the condition’s core aspects, the preoperative evaluation and preparation are presented to the patient. Every chapter is devoted to an in-depth overview of the process that will be performed during the operation. This includes the anesthesia, instrumentation, placement, and materials. When dealing with particularly difficult areas of the procedure, particular emphasis is given on tips and techniques. After each treatment comes an explanation of the postoperative course that should be anticipated as well as the typical complications that may arise. The literature on the results is supplied, and it takes into account any developments that have occurred since the initial outcomes as well as any projected future developments for the diagnosis and procedure. It provides a synopsis of the current state of the field that is both concise and exhaustive, and it does so in a way that will assist in the management of patients and encourage further investigation. Each chapter is prepared by an expert in their respective field and contains the most recent findings in both the scientific and clinical communities.
