The previous edition of this book was based on a simple but essential philosophy: provide a practical and up-to-date resource for the practicing surgeon detailing the specific needs and special considerations surrounding the surgical care of children. The second edition of Fundamentals of Pediatric Surgery stays true to the philosophy of the original with several significant enhancements.  As well as encompassing the most up-to-date and practical clinical information for the experienced surgeon written in a straightforward narrative style, each chapter provides a rationale for the proposed approach based on the scientific evidence available in the literature and the author’s personal clinical experience, supplies a detailed algorithm or clinical protocol in a graphic format, initiates a discussion regarding unanswered questions and proposals for future studies, and includes a list of suggested readings. Chapters cover in great detail a broad range of pediatric general surgery topics, including disorders of all major organ systems of the abdomen and thorax, congenital anomalies presenting in the newborn period, and a variety of maladies germane to the growing field of fetal surgery.  The authors also provide authoritative discussions of therapeutic methods and surgical techniques that range from the traditional to the modern, including time-honored open operations, contemporary minimally invasive interventions, and emerging technologies such as single-site and robotic surgery.
Written by experts in the field, Fundamentals of Pediatric Surgery, Second Edition is a definitive source of readily available clinical information that residents, fellows or attending surgeons can use to take care of actual patients in real time.

This book describes the features in structural imaging of the most important pediatric brain tumors with the aim of enabling radiologists to make the correct differential diagnosis and to provide the pediatric oncologist with all the imaging information relevant to further management. The opening chapter is devoted to the complex subject of pediatric trials at the national and international levels and the importance of staging for stratification, differential treatment, and outcome. A general imaging protocol for children with brain tumors is presented, and individual chapters then identify key points for the differential diagnosis and staging of posterior fossa tumors, low- and high-grade gliomas, germ cell tumors, and craniopharyngiomas. The relevance of aspects such as tumor site and age to diagnosis is explained, and pitfalls associated with meningeal dissemination and treatment-related complications mimicking recurrence are highlighted. The importance of ensuring comparability of follow-up by use of standard MR (or CT) imaging is emphasized. In drawing on the lessons gained both from pediatric trials and from the author’s own experience, this book will be invaluable for all radiologists.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of current immunotherapy strategies, and how these may be applicable to childhood cancers. The first part of the book reviews how the immune system recognizes cancer, and the various escape mechanisms allowing tumour growth. The importance of the tumor microenvironment and the challenges this may present to achieving effective immunotherapy are discussed. Monoclonal antibodies, cellular, cytokine and vaccine therapies are all comprehensively reviewed, with particular focus on their potential application to pediatric cancers. Practical aspects of delivering such therapies to children, likely toxicities and potential biomarkers are considered. Finally, consideration is given to how, in the longer term, such therapies may be combined with conventional therapies such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Edited by two distinguished pediatric oncologists with a collection of chapters from the most authoritative experts in cancer immunotherapy, this is an indispensable volume for pediatric oncologists and physicians working in childhood cancer care.

This unique book fills the void in the existing literature related to the diagnosis and evaluation of pediatric ACL injuries and presents both current and emerging surgical techniques for pediatric ACL reconstruction. Once considered rare, these injuries are on the rise as children are increasingly active and engaged in high-impact sports. Historically, these injuries have been treated with benign neglect, but there is increasing evidence that non-operative treatment approaches can lead to recurrent instability, further injury to the meniscus or cartilage, and eventually joint degeneration.

Opening with discussion of epidemiology, developmental anatomy, and assessment and radiography, this one-stop resource then presents conservative and surgical management strategies and algorithms, including ACL reconstruction without bone tunnels, use of epiphyseal tunnels, trans-physeal tunnels, or hybrid techniques. Special attention is given to the young female athlete, complications, prevention strategies, rehabilitation and return to play considerations.

Bringing together the latest clinical evidence with the preferred techniques of experts in the field, The Pediatric Anterior Cruciate Ligament is a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the inherent problems in treating ACL injuries in the pediatric patient, useful for pediatric orthopedic surgeons, orthopedic sports medicine surgeons, primary care sports medicine physicians and other professionals working with the young athlete.

All of the most common neonatal and pediatric emergencies are covered, with separate discussion of diseases that occur more commonly in newborns and those typically encountered later in childhood. For each condition, the main signs observed using the various imaging techniques – X-ray, Ultrasonography, Computed Tomography, and Magnetic Resonance – are described and illustrated with the aid of a wealth of images. Attention is drawn to those features of particular relevance to differential diagnosis, and the prognostic value of diagnostic imaging is also explained. The final section addresses topics of special interest, including the acute onset of abdominal neoplasms, the problems associated with radiation protection in the emergency setting, and medicolegal issues and informed content.
