Clinical Obstetrics. The Fetus and Mother. 3rd Edition

  • ID: 2222323
  • Book
  • 1560 Pages
  • John Wiley and Sons Ltd
1 of 3
Highly Commended in the Obstetrics and Gynaecology category at the British Medical Association Book Awards 2008

This book was formerly known as Medicine of the Fetus and Mother and has been highly successful in two previous editions. The change in title reflects the shift in emphasis towards clinical obstetrics and a reduction in the content of basic science.

This book addresses the biology, pathology, and clinical management of disorders affecting the foetus and the mother. The illustrations, including ultrasound scans and colour plates, highlight essential diagnostic features and treatment procedures. The topics covered include: ultrasonographic diagnosis; gene therapy; cord blood sampling; and in–utero cardiac therapy.

This third edition of the textbook, will be accompanied by the Q&A Review book, a self–assessment tool, a review guide, and a searchable CD of the full text with over 100 colour illustrations – at no extra cost!

About the Q & A Review: For each chapter in the textbook, the authors and editors have written multiple choice questions designed to help the reader assess his or her understanding of the material in the book. Questions relate both to the fetus and to the mother with topics ranging from conception to delivery, and including normal processes and disease states of the fetus, as well as diagnostic and therapeutic measures. The answers to all the questions are listed at the end of the book.

The Editors have modernised the main book and increased its usefulness by the addition of 10 or so key points for reader review at the end of each chapter. This revised edition contains new chapters on three–dimensional ultrasound, foetal stem cell therapy, and benign tumours in pregnancy. There is increased coverage of teratogens, infections, second trimester prenatal diagnosis, and foetal diseases, and a greater emphasis on labour and delivery. Also new to this edition are extensive discussions of prenatal diagnosis of congenital malformations using both invasive and noninvasive modalities.
