Fetal Diagnosis and Therapy: a Reference Handbook for Pediatric Surgeons 

This handbook is a ready reference that provides concise information about some of the more common fetal anomalies relevant to the pediatric surgeon. As the field is rapidly evolving, the contents of this handbook reflect the current knowledge and practice. As newer diagnostic capabilities and treatment modalities are discovered, this handbook will be updated as needed. This handbook will serve as a quick reference for the pediatric surgeon about to counsel a patient and a useful educational tool for the
residents and fellows in training. View the handbook.

Fetal Diagnosis & Treatment Committee Literature Reviews

The Fetal Diagnosis & Treatment Committee prepares regular literature reviews for APSA members which provide an overview of recent fetal research pertinent to all pediatric surgeons. The selections are compiled by members of the Fetal Diagnosis & Treatment Committee, but as a group, they are not endorsing the results of these studies as definitive practice.
