In commemoration of the centennial of the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, one of the largest children's hospitals in the world, the surgical staff of the hospital have compiled this comprehensive volume concerning the care of the injured child. Trauma continues to be the leading cause of death and disability in childhood, and this volume is one of the few reference books available concerned with both the general and specific aspects of trauma as they relate specifically to children. The 47 contributing authors from a wide variety of surgical, medical, and support services indicate the importance of teamwork in providing total care for the injured child.
