Overview

Langman's Medical Embryology covers embryology for medical, nursing, and health professions students with a strong clinical emphasis. The text is highly valued as a teaching and learning resource for its clinical correlation boxes, summaries, problems to solve, illustrations and clinical images, and clear, concise writing style—all of which make the subject matter accessible to students and relevant to instructors. Online material includes Simbryo—an animation program showing processes, organs, and systems developing in human embryos—as well as review questions and full text online. A separate Faculty Image Bank and PowerPoint presentations are also available.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Harris S Goodman, MD (Saint Francis Memorial Hospital)
Description: This book presents human embryology in terms of its clinical relevance. This edition replaces and expands upon the 2009 edition.
Purpose: It is intended to provide a basic understanding of human embryology for healthcare professionals, and relate that knowledge to clinically relevant cases. It meets these objectives with clear, concise text, beautifully simple and well-designed diagrams, and relevant clinical images.
Audience: Although it is written primarily for medical students, any healthcare professionals who deal with pregnant women, childbirth, newborn infants, and patients with birth defects will find this extremely useful. T.W. Sadler, PhD, an expert in embryology and birth defects, became coauthor with the 5th edition in 1985, and ever since has kept the solid foundation of the book intact while adding new and relevant material.
Features: The first half of the book discusses general embryology, from gametogenesis through the embryonic period. The second half describes the development of each organ system. All chapters include a concise summary, captivating clinical correlates, and a small number of clinical problems to solve. Answers are provided immediately before a helpful glossary of terms and an extensive index. Diagrams are very well designed and easy to understand, and photographs are clear and relevant.
Assessment: This is an extremely useful book for any student of human embryology and human anatomy. It retains the economy of text of early editions and beautiful diagrams, supplemented by brief descriptions of newer developments in molecular pathways, relevant clinical correlates, and helpful problems with answers.

    WOW

    I am fascinated with the CD ROM... you can see the different embriotic stages, pause and print them if you like. I just got this book for christmas for extra reading. I am a pre-med student and will be taking this course next trimester this will help me when I do my reading a lot!!! I still haven't finished skimming through the book but so far I see lots of images which helps those with photographic memory like me. :)
