The book describes the differences and characteristic aspects of laparoscopy in small children. The emphasis is on little text and numerous drawings.

The aim of the book is to provide surgeons with the knowledge to extend their expertise in adult laparoscopy to children.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a short, hard covered book that provides a practical guide to laparascopic surgery in children. … The quality of the figures is excellent; they are simple, uncluttered and easy to follow. … This is a concise and clearly presented book that would be a useful addition to the libraries of teaching institutions that perform paediatric laparoscopic procedures. Although its greatest value would be for the younger trainee in paediatric laparoscopic surgery, it also would be of use to general surgeons … ." (S W Beasley, Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health, Vol. 39 (8), 2003)

"This is a very practical booklet. It describes in short phrases the anaesthesia, the instruments, and the technique of the most common laparoscopic operations in children, and ends with a chapter on troubleshooting. … The operations are systematically described step by step and the excellent illustrations are very helpful. … It is a very useful guide for every surgeon who does, or plans to do, laparoscopic operations in children." (L. W. E. van Heurn and G. Kootstra, The British Journal of Surgery, Vol. 90 (12), 2003)
