About this book


Pediatric Thoracic Surgery provides comprehensive coverage of the newer developments and the most up-to-date information on many areas showing that morbidity in thoracic surgery has been immensely reduced as a result of new minor technical changes, significantly improving outcome. Recently, innovative flaps for broncho-pleural fistulas in children have helped to reduce morbidity, more aggressive surgery for thoracic malignancies in children have helped to improve their outcome and some of the newer materials and technological advances have changed overall outlook for thoracic wall tumours. Similarly, the outcome of pediatric thoracic trauma and some of the rare conditions have improved because of better understanding and operative interventions. Delayed intervention by preoperative stabilisation is an example of better understanding of the pathological process.

Pediatric Thoracic Surgery, with contributions from experts worldwide, covers the field (non-cardiac) in significant depth and is a useful reference work for pediatric and thoracic surgeons. It is also a valuable guide for both adult and pediatric surgeons managing pediatric thoracic surgery on occasional basis or only during acute emergency. Pediatric respiratory physicians, anesthetists and fetal medicine doctors will also find this work of interest.
