 Pediatrics  Comments Off on Pediatric Craniovertebral Junction Diseases: Surgical Management of Craniovertebral Junction Diseases in Children
Oct 282018
 

​This dedicated volume in the series Advances and Technical Standards in Neurosurgery (ATSN) provides a comprehensive approach to diseases of the craniovertebral junction (CVJ) and their management based on the multidisciplinary cooperation of neurosurgeons, anatomists, neuroradiologists, and neuroanesthesiologists. The contributing authors represent the most renowned clinical and surgical experts from Europe and beyond. The main topics highlighted are embryology, normal and abnormal development of the CVJ, including the related vessels, modern radiological contributions to diagnosis, genetic and metabolic factors which may impact on the surgical strategies, the opportunities offered by traditional operative techniques, and the recently introduced minimally invasive and endoscopic surgical modalities. Special emphasis is also placed on the evolution of the principles of surgical treatment as matured during the past decade by experiences in the still open field of pediatric neurosurgery.

Pediatric Surgery: Diagnosis and Treatment

 Pediatrics, Surgery  Comments Off on Pediatric Surgery: Diagnosis and Treatment
Oct 272018
 

Just as children are not little adults, the discipline of paediatric surgery is not equivalent to surgery for adults. Differences in anatomy, diseases affecting children and the appropriate therapies make the surgical care of children confusing and tense.

Even within paediatric care, the extensive changes children undergo as they develop from neonates to adolescents causes different care to be required at different stages. Full-size texts are available for comprehensive review of paediatric surgery when one has the luxury to sit and study at a desk, but no pocket-sized guide specific to paediatric surgery is available. This book will fulfil the need for rapid, clear, concise guidance in the immediate bedside evaluation and treatment of children suffering surgical disease.

It will provide assistance to surgical and paediatric providers alike; anyone who has a hand in the urgent care of children requiring a surgeon. The book is also a convenient focused board review guide for trainees and active practitioners taking board examinations. The editors are busy paediatric surgeons at a teaching hospital, performing operations on children every day, as well as training students and residents. The contributors are drawn from the broad spectrum of paediatric specialists encompassing the disciplines necessary to staff a tertiary children’s hospital.

Editorial Reviews

Review

In the wonderful world of paediatrics, this is a wonderful resource for students, junior doctors, and paediatric trainees alike – or anyone looking for a simple and reliable complement to learning from the literature and clinical encounter. The development and success of this has been no child’s play – one might even say, it’s a milestone of an achievement! (Beryl Lin, President University of New South Wales Medical Society)

The first edition of the ‘Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics’ is a delight. It is a new kind of paediatrics textbook for a new generation of students and professionals learning about child health and clinical paediatrics. Its quality will ensure its position alongside the very best resources available for supporting those trying to improve health care for children worldwide.

The Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics is a wonderful compilation of a systems-based approach to a challenging subject matter, with something of interest for everyone.

(Andrew Long, Vice President (Education), RCPCH, Consultant Paediatrician and Associate Medical Director, Great Ormond Street Hospital)

The layout and attention to detail in this unofficial guide is a tremendous asset for aspiring paediatricians as well as for those professionals interested in community child health. (Anthony Costello, Director, Department of Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health, World Health Organisation.)

If knowledge is to be pulled together in a textbook, then every effort should be made to make that knowledge as relevant and accessible to the reader as possible, and that is what the Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics achieves.

Training Programme Director)

It’s always difficult to grasp what’s important when you’re approaching a subject like paediatrics. The Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics is smart because it tries to combine speciality-specific knowledge with the experience of practitioners at all levels and – most importantly – the duty of care and advocacy for children. (David Osrin, Professor of Global Health, UCL Institute for Global Health, UK, Honorary Consultant Paediatrician, Great Ormond Street Hospital, UK)

“Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics” is a textbook that in format and content emphases key concepts in background knowledge and clinical care, targeted at medical students and early career paediatric trainees. In an age where it seems easier to “just google” information, this book makes it simple to find key information, enhanced by graphics and tables that promote meaningful learning. (Elizabeth Cotterell, Associate Professor of Paediatrics and Undergraduate Course Lead, University of New England)

Easy to read, practical and sensible (Colin Powell, Honorary Consultant Paediatrician Deputy Dean of Research, School of Medicine, Cardiff University)

Zeshan and colleagues have constructed a superb book, written by those actually have contemporary experience of relevant exams and who have has recently undergone/are undergoing ‘training.’ The authors represent the new generation of child health professionals who are in effect delivering huge amounts of paediatric care, together with their colleagues, in increasingly challenging circumstances. The reviews from current practicing senior clinicians clearly support this wonderful approach by the future leaders of our speciality, who have all taken this chance to shine – if you want to, are, or used to work in paediatrics and child health then get a copy!’ (Joe Brierley, Consultant Critical Care & Bioethics Great Ormond St Hospital for Children, London Medical President European Society of Paediatric & Neonatal Intensive Care)
