Pyloric stenosis in pediatric surgery: an evidence-based review.

Pyloric stenosis is a common pediatric surgical problem that requires a combination of both medical and surgical attention. This article reviews the classical elements necessary to care for the patient in a safe and effective manner. A well-tested management approach that can be applied to the general surgical environment is described. Perioperative management of the patient is discussed and the currently used techniques are reviewed. Current recommendations include the routine use of ultrasonography for diagnosis, attention to the preoperative correction of electrolytes, and the use of minimally invasive techniques for treatment.
