The book chapters are built upon a specific disease or group of diseases, just as they are encountered by pediatric surgeons. Each chapter starts with an interactive case presentation, referred to as the index case, which prompts the reader to think about diagnosis and management issues, and then provides an evidence-based approach to the same. These are actual cases that have been encountered by the author and are likely to be managed on any pediatric surgical service. The discussion that follows presents the most relevant issues pertaining to the topic, drawing on the index case, as well as multiple other cases that depict the entire spectrum of the disease or anomaly. The carefully selected suggested readings?emphasize sentinel papers, high-quality reviews, and the best and most recent evidence published on the subject. A large number of illustrations help bring the clinical concepts to light. A number of high-quality videos provide a dynamic atlas of common procedures. The book is therefore useful to the entire range of pediatric surgical trainees and practitioners, from the medical student or resident rotating on pediatric surgery, to the fellow preparing for certification, to the seasoned surgeon looking for an update on a particular subject or preparing for recertification. A large number of other physicians will find this book very useful, including general surgeons who evaluate and treat childhood surgical diseases, paediatricians and pediatric hospitalists who co-manage patients with surgeons, and obstetricians, pathologists, and radiologists who work closely with pediatric surgeons.
