Beginning with the scientific basis of tumors, this book provides up-to-date information on epidemiology, cytogenetics, and molecular biology, before examining current treatments for the full range of pediatric tumors. Integration of surgery, neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy, and radiation therapy is a dominant theme. In addition, chapters on supportive care, palliative care, and the role of parents’ associations reflect the book's holistic approach. All chapters are written by world-renowned international authorities on pediatric cancer from major children's cancer groups. Excellent full-color pictures and line drawings illustrate all aspects of managing childhood tumors, including details of operative techniques neglected in many other texts. This comprehensive book, expanded and updated to encompass the very latest developments and strategies, provides a contemporary approach for pediatric, general, and urological surgeons dealing with childhood tumors.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the biological basis of renal tumors in childhood and the clinical approaches to their treatment. Recent advances in our understanding of the molecular genetics of Wilms and other renal tumors are placed in their clinical context, including the differing treatment approaches of immediate surgery or pre-operative chemotherapy. The challenges in applying this knowledge to improve risk stratification and to incorporate biologically targeted agents into front-line therapy are discussed. All of the authors are experts from Europe and North America and the book has been written specifically as an easy reference for the practising clinician and the research scientist. It lays the basis for understanding the future direction of clinical and translational research to improve outcomes in patients with childhood renal tumors and will prove indispensable for those treating or researching into these diseases.

Pediatric surgery is a subspecialty of surgery that involves the surgery of infants, fetuses, children, young adults and adolescents. A few of its subspecialties are fetal surgery and neonatal surgery. Technologic developments such as computed tomography, sophisticated ventilators, ultrasound and advances in parental nutrition have revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of newborns. This has reduced morbidity and mortality of infants who suffer from major surgical and medical diseases. Common pediatric diseases that may require pediatric surgery are abdominal wall defects such as gastroschisis, omphalocele and hernias, congenital malformations such as cleft lip and palate, intestinal atresia and meconium plugs. Chest wall deformities such as pectus excavatum and childhood tumors such as neuroblastoma, liver tumors and kidney tumors are also treated within this field. Pediatric and neonatal surgery is an upcoming field of science that has undergone rapid development over the past few decades. This book explores all the important aspects of this field in the present day scenario. It is a vital tool for all researching and studying this field.
