Overview

This is a state-of-the-art colour-illustrated how-to clinical reference text on interventional ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology. It contains fifteen chapters, extensively illustrated, explaining how to use the special ultrasound equipment and other surgical tools required for the broad range of invasive applications of ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology. These include cyst aspiration, amniocentesis, reproductive endocrinology, fetal biopsy and puncture, monitoring early embryonic development, termination of pregnancy, evaluation of malignancy, laparoscopy and hysteroscopy, multifetal pregnancy reduction, chorionic villus sampling, IUD removal, fetal cardiology, cordocentesis, and invasive procedures in multiple pregnancies plus a special chapter on ethics. The authors are leading experts in their field, often documenting their previously unpublished experiences and data for the first time in this important book. Includes bibliographic references and index.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Describes the use of the technology as an essential adjunct to invasive procedures in obstetrics and gynecology, rather than its conventional use in diagnosis. Contributors from several countries briefly review the literature on specific procedures or conditions, describe the special ultrasound equipment or other surgical tools, and share their own experience and data. The 16 studies include chorionic villus sampling, termination of pregnancy, cyst aspiration with morphological and endocrinological correlation, and reproductive endocrinology. Most of the illustrations are monochrome. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
