About this book

Anorectal Malformations in Children represents an international consensus in understanding and treating anorectal malformations. Interesting new topics include tethered cord, vaginal reconstruction, continent catherizable channels, and the impact on family studies by  parents' organizations. The book not only carries on from the three previous editions by Douglas Stephens and Durham Smith (1963, 1971, and 1988) but assembles many new aspects in the broad field of anorectal and genitourinary malformations. Special attention is given to the new surgical techniques posterior sagittal anorectal plasty (PSARP), urogenital sinue advancement, and laparoscopy. The results of an international workshop of 26 international authorities on congenital malformations of the organs of the pelvis and perineum are presented. The new classification proposed at the Krickenberg Conference will enable future studies comparing the types and the results of treatment of anorectal malformations. The book is an invaluable reference for all medical authorities with a special interest in anorectal and genitourinary malformations.
