Textbook of Assisted Reproductive Technologies has become a classic comprehsive reference for the whole team at the IVF clinic. The fourth edition comes more conveniently as a set of two separate volumes, one for laboratory aspects and the other for clinical applications.
The text has been extensively revised, with the addition of several important new contributions on clinical applications, including new chapters on lifestyle factors, tailored ovarian stimulation, frozen-thawed embryo transfer, viral disease, and religious perspectives. As before, methods, protocols, and techniques of choice are presented by eminent international experts.
