This book represents a personal effort to summarize more than 50 years of experience in managing oculoplastic problems in children. Many of the contributors are individuals who have trained as oculoplastic surgery fellows at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) as approved by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). The remainder represent affiliated subspecialists and international colleagues who share our team management approach to patient care. We have been particularly fortunate to have been associated with this unique institution (the oldest pediatric hospital in the Western hemisphere) and to work with so many individuals of world renown.
These gifted physicians and surgeons have always been graciously available for consultation, often without a scheduled appointment. What is presented in each chapter of this book is not an encyclopedic representation of every surgical pediatric condition, but rather a logical approach to the evaluation and management of a wide spectrum of oculoplastic problems as encountered in children. Our philosophy has been one involving a cooperative team approach to patient care, utilizing the expertise of related disciplines for the benefit of the patient. We have tried to highlight useful diagnostic approaches and provide the reader with specific steps in management that have proven successful in our hands. In some instances, the management steps may seem either too radical or not aggressive enough when compared to similar problems in adults.
It is important to stress, however, that children are not just “little adults.” Pediatric specialists require special skills: patience and compassion in relating to children and their family members, as well as diagnostic and surgical acumen and an intuitive “feel” for creative problem-solving. Although we have reached definitive solutions in many areas, others remain frustratingly elusive. It is our collective hope, however, that these chapters may provide new insights for improving the reader’s appreciation and skills in the diagnosis and management of pediatric oculoplastic problems.
