The primary goal of this book is to share our experience in field of pediatric plastic surgery with health practitioners who are involved in primary practice and for all others who are involved in treatment of these patients.
Some fields of pediatric plastic surgery such as clefs, benign and malignant tumors, and vascular anomalies are difficult to present in short chapter, or even in one a book, because of their complexity, especially that they are already described by many other authors. Our idea was to present most important topics in pediatric plastic surgery through 14 chapters with general information about the clinical presentation, diagnostic procedures, treatment options, and complications.
