Atlas of Children's Surgery is truly a global venture with its editors drawn from all parts of the world- Prof.GH Willital (Germany), Dr. Edward Kelly (UK), Dr. AM Gohary (UAE), Prof. DK Gupta (India), Prof. Minju (China) and Prof.Y Tsuchida (Japan). The largest contribution is by Prof. GH Willital who heads Pediatric Surgical Center in Munster University. In all, this 509-page book encompasses 135 chapters and 1163 illustrations. The atlas has been essentially compiled for students, house officers, young paediatrics surgeons and general surgeons. The operative techniques are described and illustrated in a systemic manner. At the end of each chapter recommendations are made on 'Points to be observed during surgery- How to avoid complications'. These recommendations are based on the European Databane of Complications in Pediatric Surgery (EDBEC). Professor Lehmann, a renowned German anatomist has given surgical anatomical backgrounds to selected chapters such as goiter, torticollis, chylothorax, gastroschisis, prune belly syndrome etc. in explaining surgical indication and pointing out important leading landmarks. Prof. Gupta has contributed chapters on surgery of pelvi-ureteral junction block and vesico-ureteral reflux. My personal favourite section is that on Anorectal anomalies. Prof. Thorn E. Lobe and others have contributed a section on laparoscopic procedures that makes the atlas very contemporary. The atlas is well referenced, the references are current and easily available.

The hard cover atlas is priced at 82 Euros/96 US$ that is about 4000 INR, which sounds reasonable.

An electronic version of the book is also available at (visit only if you are conversant with German language). Those who would buy this could avail the facility of downloading the updated version two years later free of cost. Digital vide teaching films and intra operative digital pictures of the common procedures would be made available to the buyers free of cost on request.
