Paediatric surgeons who practice in areas where medical resources are stretched over wide geographical areas face a number of challenges. This resource provides an easy and useful guide to help readers understand the essentials of paediatric surgery. Using the authors’ own experiences, the text illustrates the different management practices required when dealing with paediatric patients in rural and remote settings.
The most frequently encountered fetal, infant and paediatric conditions are reviewed, together with coverage of trauma, burns, urology, thoracic surgery, emergency abdominal surgery, minimally invasive paediatric surgery and problems with external genitalia.
This book is intended to be a practical guide for clinicians to the common and important problems seen in paediatric surgery, enabling them to make clinical management plans and ensure effective communication with local teams.
