Special Issue in Children: Diagnosis and Surgical Care of Pediatric Cancers
It is a great honor to serve as the Guest Editor for this Special Issue of Children, entitled “Abdominal Surgery in Pediatrics”.
Pediatric abdominal surgery is a vast field. The younger the child, the higher the incidence of connatal malformations that require surgery. Nevertheless, malignant diseases of solid organs, and a continuously rising number of inflammatory diseases in children and adolescents, represent an important issue. Moreover, acute abdominal diseases such as appendicitis, intussusception, volvulus, and all kinds of herniation are important topics. The strategies in surgical therapy are continuously changing and are always the subject of academic discussion. Minimally invasive approaches, interdisciplinary treatment strategies, robotics, endoscopic surgery, and new techniques are of great interest. However, not all of these “new” strategies are validated and always better just because they are modern and popular.
The goal of this Special Issue is for academics to discuss any of these mentioned topics and to share their experiences related to this field
Surgeons and researchers are encouraged to contribute their most innovative manuscripts. A variety of contributions to this Special Issue are welcomed: experimental papers, review articles, systemic reviews, proposals for new strategic approaches, and prospective/retrospective case studies. We will not publish single case reports.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
Dr. Jurgen Schleef
