The first edition of this book was a landmark publication and did much to establish paediatric hepatobiliary surgery as a discrete subspecialty. This edition is an expanded and fully updated version. Two new editors have added complementary expertise and international authority. More operative detail has been included for the non-specialist and there are new sections on the surgical management of pancreatic disease, transplantation and trauma written by international experts. High quality operative line illustrations and a section of colour plates have also been added to aid understanding.
