Advances in Obstetrics and Gynecology (Volume 3)

by Shalini Rajaram, Neerja Goel, Sumita Mehta

The book was conceived with a purpose of updating practicing gynecologists in the ever-changing field of medicine. We hope this book refreshes the readers on a wide variety of topics. The book for the first time brings to the readers the concept of Obstetric High Dependency Unit and Intensive Care Unit. Although this has been the practice in the West, this concept needs to be introduced in many countries to optimally manage high-risk obstetric patients. We aim to update the readers on various medical disorders which continue to challenge the obstetricians. The definition and management of placenta previa have changed over the years with more focus on conservative management and a greater emphasis on vaginal delivery. In the litigious environment that we live in today, safe anesthesia practice in obstetric patients is of paramount importance to avoid deaths in both the neonates and the mothers. Readers will also find this book a useful source material in updating their knowledge on intrauterine infections. This contains two sections. Anemia in pregnancy (Erythropoiesis in Pregnancy, Causes of Anemia, Prevention of Iron Deficiency, Effects of Anemia on Pregnancy, Clinical Features of IDA, Newer Iron Preparations, Parenteral Iron Therapy, Recombinant Erythropoietin), Megaloblastic Anemia in Pregnancy, Pregnancy after Corrected Heart Disease, An Update on Viral Infections in Pregnancy, Obstetric Admissions to ICU, Liver Disorders in Pregnancy: Current Evidence for Management, Changing Scenario in the Management of Placenta Previa/Accreta, Postpartum Complications, Anesthetic Considerations and Obstetric Outcomes, Ultrasonography: Special Situations, section 2 discusses topics like menstrual disorders in adolescents, evaluation of postmenopausal bleeding, HPV carcinogenesis in cancer cervix, alternative therapies for menopause, recent concepts in management of urinary incontinence in women, management of adolescent PCOS, troubleshooting in laparoscopy, intractable chronic malignant pelvic and perineal pain.
