Recurrent Pregnancy Loss: Causes, Controversies and Treatment
CRC Press, Jun 13, 2007 - Medical - 290 pages
Exploring basic science and the clinical applications, Recurrent Pregnancy Loss: Causes, Controversies and Treatment provides an authoritative, comprehensive review of the management of recurrent pregnancy loss. Many subjects in this area are controversial, and occasionally clinical decisions are based on lack of knowledge rather than evidence. For this reason, chapters include debates by leading experts to aid the clinician in deciding on the appropriate clinical management.
Chapters cover basic science, genetics, and the application of evidence based medicine as well as mid- trimester loss, late obstetric complications, and related psychological mechanisms.
This book will be essential reading for specialists working in recurrent pregnancy loss clinics and associated disciplines, as well as anyone wishing to gain a comprehensive view of developments in the field.
