To the Editor: While we enjoyed reading Sewell's article summarising advances in paediatrics, there was no mention of developments in general paediatric surgery.1 About a third of all patients admitted to a paediatric hospital have surgical conditions. Viable advances would thus have significant implications for many children and their families.
