This is a comprehensive and procedural reference for pediatric surgical techniques. The first section provides a detailed and contemporary summary of the basic concepts of cellular structure and function, nutrition, metabolism, physiology, immunology, and inflammation as they relate to children's surgery. It devotes considerable attention to the scientific principles involved in pediatric oncology, transplantation, and trauma. The second portion of the book provides a detailed discussion of all the important clinical problems of infants and children. Organized by organ system, each chapter follows a uniform structure for easy reference: embryology, anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, indications for and results of surgery, principles of surgical correction, and pre- and post-operative care. Accompanying the text are extensive surgical illustrations, photographs, radiographs, summary tables, algorithms, and flow diagrams
