Infant Nutrition: Its Physiological Basis covers the physiological aspects of the nutrition of the fetus and young infant. This book is composed of 12 chapters that evaluate the data on the physical and chemical properties of the human and cow’s milk. It effectively addresses the aspects of tissue metabolism and the composition of a new born infant. The first chapters deal with the factors affecting placenta permeability; features of placenta; maternal supply and placental transmission of individual nutrients; secretion and components of human milk; and the constitution, chemical, and biological properties of milk. A comparison of the amino acid content of human and cow’s milk is also covered. Other chapters consider the analysis of the sucking and swallowing motion of the infant, as well as the physiological weight loss of the neo-natal period. The calorie and nutritional requirement of infants and children are presented. The last chapter is devoted to the protein requirements of young infants. The book can provide useful information to doctors, pediatricians, students, and researchers.

The Surgery of the Alimentary Tract provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of the surgery of the alimentary canal and its adnexal organs. This book examines the selection of operative methods, improvements in the operative method, and the advantages of pre-operative and post-operative treatment. Organized into four parts encompassing 93 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the sites of obstruction in the esophagus. This text then discusses the general symptoms of dyspepsia, including discomfort, pain, heartburn, flatulence, acid eructation, nausea, vomiting, and visceral tenderness. Other chapters consider significant functions of the stomach, which is the main organ concerned with digestion and absorption. This book discusses as well the incidence and causes of dilatations and spasm of the alimentary canal. The final chapter deals with the principles involved when dealing with injuries to the rectum. This book is a valuable resource for surgeons, physicians, and post-graduate students.
