The seventh edition of this acclaimed operative atlas continues to provide a unique level of comprehensive detail on the full range of conditions presented in childhood, including the fetus and neonate, that can be treated by surgical means. With an international list of authors, the chapters have been updated and complemented by the high quality artwork that has established this operative guide as the standard reference for the paediatric surgeon.
