Surgery of the Liver, Bile Ducts and Pancreas in Children, Third Edition describes the modern approach to the diagnosis, management and surgery of childhood conditions of the liver and associated structures. The first edition was recognized worldwide as a landmark publication and helped to establish pediatric hepatobiliary surgery as a discrete subspecialty; the second was expanded to include pancreatic diseases, transplantation and trauma. This third edition is overseen by a new editorial team from two world-leading centers for children’s liver surgery: King’s College Hospital in London, and Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago. The book has been further expanded and updated by a team of international experts to take account of the very latest advances in research and practice.
