A Color Atlas of Minimal Access Surgery in Children, Volume 1
This is the second edition of a successful reference title. Minimal Access Surgery (MAS) is an ever-increasing technique in pediatric operations, and laparoscopic surgery is now widely accepted as standard procedure, even with neonates. This colour atlas provides an excellent overview of the subject, with a discussion of the instruments and machinery used in the surgery, an overview of the preparations required and then a thorough description of laparoscopic pediatric operations on the GI, and urogenital systems, and the thorax. Illustrated with hundreds of full colour photographs, this book will serve as an excellent reference work on laparoscopy and paediatric surgery, and will also prove invaluable to trainee and practising endoscopic surgeons who wish to broaden their knowledge and extend their skills.
