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 and review guide, 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.
