Fetal Therapy: Invasive and Transplacental

Front Cover
Nicholas M. Fisk, Kenneth J. Moise
Cambridge University Press, Jan 28, 1997 - Medical - 369 pages
This authoritative international text on fetal therapy is the first to cover all three classes of fetal therapy in one book: transplacental drug treatment, invasive procedures, and fetal surgery. It emphasises treatments which have become established in clinical practice in this rapidly developing field, as well as reviewing those that have failed to live up to initial expectation, and discusses the likely impact of new therapies on the horizon. The editors head a team of American, European and Australasian authors, all of whom are leading experts in their respective fields. The text is authoritative, evidence based, and balanced, finding the common ground between the opposing camps of 'enthusiasts' and 'therapeutic nihilists'. It will be an essential source of reference for all those involved in the care of the unborn child, and particularly for obstetricians training in fetal medicine.
