about

This immensely practical handbook provides the busy clinician with a self-contained account of the diagnosis and management of ectopic pregnancy. Such pregnancies, which develop outside the uterine cavity, are an increasingly common occurrence. The focus throughout is on diagnosis and management issues, and the author provides rapid solutions to the most difficult problems posed by ectopic pregnancy. The text is fully supported by numerous and helpful ultrasound images, line diagrams illustrating surgical techniques, and by highlighted summaries of key facts and decision trees.

From Our Editors

This concise yet immensely practical handbook provides the busy clinician with a self-contained account of the diagnosis and management of ectopic pregnancy. Such pregnancies, which develop outside the normal confines of the uterine cavity, are a relatively common occurrence and there is some evidence their incidence is increasing.

Editorial Reviews

"...a well-written and comprehensive handbook covering all aspects of this important subject. I found it very readable and just about the right length. The information is presented in easily digestible chunks and the summary at the end of each chapter is handy for those who do not have the time to review the entire text. Importantly, for a subject that has undergone such change over the last few years, the book is particularly well referenced....This is an excellent book for post-graduates and any clinician dealing with patients who have an ectopic pregnancy. It will be well thumbed in any medical library and is an invaluable resource for departments seeking to revamp their protocols for the management of ectopic pregnancy. I can thoroughly recommend this book." Keith A. Louden, Lancet
