Dewhurst's Textbook of Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Front Cover
Keith Edmonds
John Wiley & Sons, Apr 15, 2008 - Medical - 736 pages
This time honoured classic has been re-built completely: after six editions the editor has decided that a radical revision is necessary. The new edition has been developed as a result of intensive consultation with trainees in OB/GYN as to what they want, what they need and how they learn.


The book is organised into two halves covering obstetrics and gynaecology. Within each, the chapters are structured into sections containing pedagogic features such as boxes, highlights and key points for the first time. It contains everything the clinician needs to practice the art of obstetrics and gynaecology and sufficient information to help sub-specialists develop their specific interests. This text is recommended reading for the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology membership examination.


This seventh edition contains 21 new chapters:



  • Anatomy of the Pelvis and Reproductive Tract


  • Placenta and Fetal Membranes


  • Antenatal Care


  • Anaesthesia and Analgesia


  • Recurrent Miscarriage


  • Ectopic Pregnancy


  • Trophoblastic Disease


  • Genetics and Prenatal Diagnosis


  • Drugs and Pregnancy


  • Obstetric Emergencies


  • Prolonged Pregnancy


  • Renal Disease


  • Termination of Pregnancy


  • Imaging in Gynaecology


  • PMS


  • Assisted Reproduction


  • Hysteroscopy and Laparoscopy


  • Sexual Dysfunction


  • Psychological Aspects of Pregnancy


  • Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault - now on MRCOG curriculum


  • Ethical Dilemmas


This seventh edition has been significantly updated with a wide range of internationally renowned contributors who are all experts in their field, bringing this book to the cutting edge of knowledge in obstetrics and gynaecology.


"It was my favourite textbook when I was working for my examinations and I am still using it. I can recommend this edition to current trainees wholeheartedly. It is certainly worth buying." Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology
