Lippincott’s Obstetrics Case-Based Review is based on real-life clinical scenarios, written in a manner that mimics “morning rounds”. This comprehensive text covers a wide range of medical, obstetrical, and fetal complications, making it your go-to source for studying for the obstetric written and oral boards.

Each chapter begins with a description of the patient at presentation and concludes with delivery of the infant. Questions concerning the management of the patient are present followed by detailed explanations to the answers.

Features include:

·         Case Presentations to provide you with real-life scenarios 

·         Need-to-Know Clinical Pearls to highlight key take-aways

·         More than 110 multiple Choice Questions to test your knowledge of the case throughout the text

Plus, there is a companion website that accompanies the text that includes an online question bank and fully searchable text. See the inside front cover for further details.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anthony Shanks, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a quick, easy-to-use obstetrics study guide geared for medical students.
Purpose: The goal is to provide a framework for further learning while students are busy on a clinical rotation. In essence, it presents case-based information with a thorough process behind the information that it provides.
Audience: The book is clearly designed for medical students on the obstetrics ward, though interns may like thumbing through the material as well. The authors represent excellent obstetrics programs in the U.S.
Features: Each of the 40 chapters highlights a problem seen in pregnancy, presenting it as a case. For example, the first chapter highlights cardiac disease in pregnancy. Multiple choice questions are interspersed in the text, as are helpful charts and tables. The authors should get credit for including the chart on recurrence risk for lesions. The case continues, providing new information and challenging readers to answer a simple 4-choice multiple choice question. Case conclusions appear at the end of each case. The book attempts to simulate the ward, while providing a multitude of didactic information. Illustrations are used extensively and effectively throughout the book (see chapter on operative delivery). Some pages at first glance appear too busy, but the material is actually quite simple to follow.
Assessment: This is a very nice question-and-answer book geared to motivated medical students/interns. It presents them with the clinical context of a problem as well as the information needed to solve it. It is easy to follow, yet the topics are challenging enough to remain interesting. Ancillary staff may find the book of value as well.
