Pediatric Surgery and Urology: Long-term Outcomes, edited by Stringer et al, is a definitive reference text that "provides an analysis of long-term results of both conditions and procedures in pediatric surgery and urology." The four editors and 117 contributors from Britain and the United States have produced an account of combined experience from two countries with similar backgrounds in the surgical treatment of infants and children. Previously unpublished institutional experience and expert clinical review of the literature make the text current and applicable to daily practice. A book that emphasizes outcome rather than diagnosis and procedures has become essential, as health care moves to measures of efficacy, safety, acceptability, and cost effectiveness. The current text has taken the first step toward this goal.
