Advances in neonatal surgery.


:Neonatal surgery has reached a high degree of sophistication. We are now entering a new era of widespread screening of the unborn by means of ultrasound, with planned intrauterine, intrapartum, and immediate postpartum interventions. Many pediatric surgical centers are now focusing their investigative efforts on elucidating the cellular, molecular, and biochemical response to disease and therapeutic agents. The author presents the topic of neonatal surgery to some of the newer applications, techniques, and approaches.
