- This superbly illustrated book on the surgical treatment of pediatric colorectal problems focuses in particular on the specific technical maneuvers that may be considered key to successful results. The presented management concepts are based on retrospective analysis of a database comprising over 5000 patients, more than 2300 of whom have been operated on by one of the authors, Dr. Peña, as lead surgeon over the past 30 years. The full range of colorectal disorders in children is thus covered, from cloaca and fistulas to Hirschsprung’s disease and rarer presentations including cloacal exstrophy, rectal atresia, tumor masses, and idiopathic constipation. In addition, chapters are included on topics such as prenatal diagnosis, neonatal management, minimally invasive techniques, recent advances in imaging, and a bowel management program for treatment of fecal incontinence. Surgical Treatment of Colorectal Problems in Children is eminently a practical book, written with the goal of sharing with the pediatric surgical community the wealth of experience gained from the treatment of such a large series of patients. Clarity, simplicity, and applicability are emphasized throughout. A crucial feature of the book is the very high quality of the illustrations, which include excellent intraoperative photographs. In addition, the reader will have access to instructive videos of procedures.
