Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pediatric gastrointestinal tract disorders represent an extremely large and diverse set of disorders, which as far as possible, as knowledge develops, is still expanding. The pathological entities that can be considered in this group vary in nature and frequency among the various age groups of the pediatric patient, and may be congenital or acquired. The pathological entities that can be considered in this group vary in nature and frequency among the various age groups of the pediatric patient, and may be congenital or acquired. Among the former, an important role is played by malformed pathologies such as esophageal atresia or such as Hirschsprung's disease, not forgetting abnormalities of the lower digestive tract such as, anorectal malformations. Among acquired diseases, on the other hand, we can give several examples, but in terms of frequency and severity, acute appendicitis, volvulus of the intestine, and necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) are worth mentioning. The development of knowledge in Pediatric Surgery has not only improved the understanding of the pathogenetic mechanisms underlying these diseases, but has also led to an advancement in the type of surgical treatment. In this Special Issue, we want to give space to all colleagues who want to share their experiences regarding the diagnosis, management, and surgical treatment of pediatric gastrointestinal diseases.
