About this book


Pediatric Surgery Digest offers a praxis-oriented and up-to-date overview of all subjects in pediatric surgery according to the European surgical curriculum. Additionally, interdisciplinary aspects concerning pediatrics, adult surgery, obstetrics and other disciplines working with children were considered. The tables enable quick access to indications for the operative and conservative therapy with schematic step-by-step illustrations for nearly all surgical procedures. Practical information on child-adapted dosage for pharmacotherapy as well as age-specific injury patterns from scalding in young children to spleen rupture in teenaged vehicle users are taken into consideration. The surgical role in modern pediatric oncology is also presented according to the guidelines of SIOP. European pediatric surgeons, experts in their field, have written this book for students and trainees, but also for anybody who treats children surgically.
