Clinical Reproductive Medicine and Surgery: A Practical Guide

Clinical Reproductive Medicine and Surgery: A Practical Guide

Now in a completely revised and expanded third edition, including six new chapters, this user-friendly textbook offers a succinct overview of both the medical and surgical management of reproductive disorders, as well as coverage of associated imaging modalities. Included here are updated chapters on major reproductive endocrinology and infertility issues, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), pubertal disorders, amenorrhea, menopause, management of endometriosis and fibroids (including interventional radiology), laboratory and clinical aspects of assisted reproductive technologies (ART), imaging modalities such as ultrasonography and sonohysterography, and hysteroscopic and laparoscopic techniques. New chapters include an expansion of female infertility and fertility, preimplantation diagnosis and screening, osteoporosis, and contraception and sterilization. In addition, each chapter opens with a clinical case presentation and a list of keywords relevant to the topic at hand.   Residents, fellows, and new clinicians of obstetrics and gynecology interested in reproductive endocrinology and infertility will find Clinical Reproductive Medicine and Surgery: A Practical Guide a valuable and focused reference.

Textbook of Assisted Reproductive Techniques: Two Volume Set

Textbook of Assisted Reproductive Techniques: Two Volume Set

Already established as a classic comprehensive reference for the whole team at the IVF clinic, this new edition has been extensively revised, with the addition of several important new contributions on laboratory ( including advanced sperm selection techniques for ICSI, human embryo biopsy procedures, oocyte activation, managing an oocyte bank, artificial gametes, and epigenetics) as well as on clinical topics (including GnRH agonist triggering, segmentation of IVF treatment, uterus transplantation, and risk and safety management). As previously, methods, protocols, and techniques of choice are presented by eminent contributors internationally.

Textbook of Assisted Reproductive Techniques

Textbook of Assisted Reproductive Techniques has become a classic comprehensive reference for the whole team at the IVF clinic. The fourth edition comes more conveniently as a set of two separate volumes, one for laboratory aspects and the other for clinical applications. The text has been extensively revised, with the addition of several important new contributions on laboratory aspects including developing techniques such as PICSI, IMSI, and time-lapse imaging. The second volume focuses on clinical applications and includes new chapters on lifestyle factors, tailored ovarianstimulation, frozen-thawed embryo transfer, viral disease, and religious perspectives. As before, methods, protocols, and techniques of choice are presented by eminent international experts. The two volume set includes: ■ Volume One - Laboratory Perspectives■ Volume Two - Clinical Perspectives 

Recurrent Implantation Failure: Etiologies and Clinical Management

Recurrent Implantation Failure: Etiologies and Clinical Management

This unique text discusses the wide range of causes and pathophysiologic conditions contributing to recurrent implantation failure (RIF) and the current treatment approaches to best approach this challenging patient population. Beginning with a presentation of the mechanism of normal implantation, the physiologic synchrony between embryo and endometrium, and the roles of both gametes and embryos in RIF, the book then examines the various genetic, immune and environmental factors involved. Abnormalities of the hematologic and endocrine system, as well as those of the anatomy and microbiome, are described in detail. Last but no less important, the psychological stress and treatment of patients experiencing RIF is discussed. Assisted reproductive technology (ART) success has increased substantially over the past three decades. However, despite these advances, recurrent implantation failure is still a common issue confronting patients and clinicians, and RIF represents one of the greatest challenges in ART and remains a source of frustration and disappointment for patients, clinicians, and researchers involved in the process. Providing an in-depth investigation into the pathophysiology and biological mechanisms of RIF and its clinical management, this will be an excellent resource for reproductive endocrinologists and infertility specialists.

Oxford American Handbook of Reproductive Medicine (Oxford American Handbooks in Medicine)

Oxford American Handbook of Reproductive Medicine (Oxford American Handbooks in Medicine)

Reproductive medicine is the most dynamic area within obstetrics and gynecology and, arguably, the most complicated. An explosion of scientific understanding and technological capabilities - particularly in contraception, infertility and menopause - has transformed the specialty into a high-profile subject that touches upon endocrinology, embryology, andrology, surgery, social science, and practical law and ethics. The Oxford American Handbook of Reproductive Medicine provides a practical overview of the reproductive system and a systematic approach to its disorders, covering diagnosis, assessment, and ongoing management with particular emphasis on common and important presentations. Concise, readable, and pocket-sized, this handbook is useful for medical students, primary care clinicians, and ob/gyn residents as a ready reference for daily practice.

Assisted Reproductive Technology: A Lawyer's Guide to Emerging Law and Science

Assisted Reproductive Technology: A Lawyer's Guide to Emerging Law and Science

Disputes about disposition of embryos and gametes in divorce are increasingly common, but assisted reproduction technology (ART) impacts other areas of the law, including personal injury, insurance, criminal law, estate planning, and government. Drawing from multiple legal sources, this book presents complex information in a direct, balanced and fair manner. Topics covered include: the right to privacy; the Uniform Parentage Act; intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization; cryopreserved embryos; surrogacy; posthumous reproduction; reproductive cloning; standards of care, malpractice, and liability; and ART contracts.

The Reproductive Rights Reader: Law, Medicine, and the Construction of Motherhood (Critical America)

The Reproductive Rights Reader: Law, Medicine, and the Construction of Motherhood (Critical America)

Since the passage of Roe v. Wade, the debate over reproductive rights has dominated America’s courts, legislatures, and streets. The contributors to The Reproductive Rights Reader embrace reproductive justice for all women, but challenge mainstream legal and political solutions based on protecting free choice via neutral governmental policies, which frequently ignore or jeopardize the interests of women of color and the poor. Instead, the pieces in this interdisciplinary book—including both legal cases and articles by legal scholars, historians, sociologists, political scientists and others—favor a critical analysis that addresses the concrete material conditions that limit choices, the role of law and social policy in creating those conditions, and the gendered power dynamics that inform and are reinforced by the regulation of human reproduction.The selections demonstrate that the right to choice isn’t an automatic guarantee of reproductive justice and gender equality; to truly achieve this ideal it is essential to recognize the complexity of women’s reproductive experiences and needs. Divided into four sections, the book examines feminist critiques of medical knowledge and practice; and the legal regulation of pregnancy termination, conception and child-bearing, and behavior during pregnancy.
