Leading oncologists release Russia's first encyclopedia of pediatric thoracoabdominal oncological surgery
The Encyclopedia of Pediatric Thoracoabdominal Oncological Surgery is the first monograph on this subject in Russia.
“The book summarizes and systematizes the vast experience in the field of pediatric as well as adult thoracoabdominal surgery accumulated in one of the leading institutes of the country — Radiology Research Center of the RF Ministry of Health. The encyclopedia will definitely become each pediatric oncologist-surgeon’s reference book,” says Mikhail Davydov, Doctor of medical sciences, professor, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia.
The monograph describes the current state of cancer surgery of children’s chest, abdominal and retroperitoneal tumors. The book details the features of cancer surgeries with clinical observations. Many complex surgeries to remove children’s malignant tumors were performed personally by Professor Ryabov and Professor Davydov.
“Transferring adult thoracoabdominal surgery technologies to children’s surgery is a decisive step for a qualitative breakthrough,” says Andrei Ryabov, MD, professor of the Department of Surgery and Oncology, Faculty of Continuing Medical Education of RUDN University.
Particular attention is paid to anesthesia and the choice of surgical access. In addition, epidemiology, statistics, basic classifications and methods of combined treatment are considered.
The encyclopedia will help practicing pediatric oncologists, pediatric surgeons and specialists involved in the diagnosis and treatment of children with thoracoabdominal tumors.

The chemist of RUDN together with colleagues from Iran and Spain created a catalyst based on palladium and nickel for the oxidation of cyclohesane in the production of adipic acid, which is used for the production of cleaning products, food dyes and other substances. The new catalyst made it possible to double the consumption of cyclohexane.
