520    The second, fully updated edition of this book applies and
       contextualizes up-to-date information on pediatric surgery
       for low and middle-income countries (LMICs) The book is 
       organized in general anatomic and thematic sections within
       pediatric surgery, such as urology, oncology, orthopedics 
       and gastroenterology and includes chapters addressing the 
       unique challenges and approaches for pediatric surgery in 
       low-resource settings. Each chapter has dual authorship 
       LMIC author providing context-specific insights and 
       authors from high-income countries (HICs) contributing 
       experience from well-resourced settings. Written in a 
       reader-friendly format, this book has a uniform structure 
       in each chapter, with introduction, demographics, etiology,
       pathophysiology, clinical presentations, investigations, 
       management, outcome, prevention, ethics, evidence-based 
       surgery and references. This comprehensive volume fills 
       the gap between up-to-date pediatric surgical scholarship 
       and knowledge developed and applied in HICs, and the 
       practical needs of practitioners in low-resource settings.
       This is an indispensable guide for postgraduate surgical 
       trainees in Africa and other LMICs as well as general 
       surgeons practicing in Africa and other LMICs, who need to
       care surgically for children
