This work, although intended to be a reference of current surgical techniques for the use of paediatric surgeons and paediatricians, is not meant to be an exhaustive surgical manual. It does not, therefore, cover the standard surgical techniques such as liver resection, but does offer detailed information on lesser known, but valuable techniques such as hepatic transplantation and portoenterostomy for biliary atresia.
