Key Features
  • Examines the initial clinical approach to suspected deformation problems, and then walks you through pathogenesis, diagnostic features, management, prognosis, and counseling for each condition.
  • Addresses a full range of lower extremity deformations; joint dislocations; nerve palsies; chest and spinal deformations; head and neck deformations; craniosynostosis and cranial bone variations; problems associated with abnormal birth presentation, birth palsies, and procedure-related defects; infant head shape variations; and torticollis.
  • Includes new chapters on early embryonic disruption and fetal disruption, new Key Points boxes throughout, new insights and references in every chapter, and a new video on the physical examination of a patient with a congenital radial nerve palsy.
  • Distinguishes deformations from malformations for appropriate management.
  • Utilizes four consistent sections in every chapter—Genesis, Features, Management and Prognosis, and Differential Diagnosis—to provide concise yet comprehensive information on 50 common pediatric conditions.
  • Provides evidence-based management recommendations on common fetal complications such as oligohydramnios, pulmonary hypoplasia, and uterine structural abnormalities, and discusses current management techniques for each.
  • Offers essential information to a range of professionals, including neonatologists, pediatricians, family practitioners, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, rehabilitative specialists, pediatric nurse practitioners, and residents in all fields.
  • An eBook version is included with purchase. The eBook allows you to access all of the text, figures, and references, with the ability to search, customize your content, make notes and highlights, and have content read aloud. Any additional digital ancillary content may publish up to 6 weeks following the publication date.
