From the reviews:
"This is a comprehensive book from specialists in several surgical fields who share a particular interest in and ability to care for children afflicted with spina bifida. ... The work is highly technical and, although it will be valuable only to pediatric neurosurgeons, it is a valuable reference for anyone interested in this narrow subject or attempting to provide optimal care to these children. ... All Chapters are well illustrated and nicely referenced."(Robert M Arensman, Doody's Review Service, November, 2008)
"Spina Bifida: Management and Outcome is a valuable addition to the library of any health care professional involved in the management of spina bifida. It includes a wide spectrum of topics, and the presentation of well-established as well as new information makes the book a useful read. In particular, the extensive collection of images and photographs is a unique and valuable resource. The extensive and up-to-date bibliography provides the reader with ample opportunity for further exploration of the topic." (Sasha Burn and James Drake, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 301 (4), 2009)
"This recently published book on Spina Bifida represents a due update on a disease that has been erroneously considered of relatively low scientific significance in the western world during last decade. ... the book which is supported by the all over high-quality reproduction of images represents a standard of care collection which every involved physician should have the will to consult in the management of this kind of disease." (Gianpiero Tamburrini, Child's Nervous System, Vol. 25, 2009)
