Many children are operated on by surgeons who are not pediatric specialists. And many of these surgeons are familiar with minimally invasive techniques, yet hesitate to conduct laparoscopy in young patients. This book provides the knowledge they require and gives technical advice concerning the performance of the most frequent laparoscopic procedures in small children. The text provides a step-by-step approach and technical guide with little text and many instructive drawings. Diagnostic criteria are also discussed.
