Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Elisa Ann Hofmann, BS, MD (Fox Valley Endocrinology)
Description: This is the fourth volume in a series on profertility. From AIDS to zinc, it contains encyclopedic descriptions of various aspects of male infertility. It includes not only diseases that cause it, but also the vocabulary that physicians need to understand when evaluating it.
Purpose: Because this volume did not include a preface, it is impossible to discern the authors' exact objective. The book provides a compilation of concise definitions and diagnostic evaluations of various aspects of male infertility.
Audience: The book was written primarily for reproductive medicine specialists and for urologists. It is also appropriate for gynecologists and endocrinologists in training. The authors are credible since they are principally gynecologists specializing in reproductive endocrinology and in vitro fertilization.
Features: This volume makes excellent use of tables and algorithms to familiarize the reader with the etiologies, categories, and treatment of male infertility. The illustrations are clear and pertinent to the text that they depict. The references are likewise pertinent, and they are primarily from the 1990s.
Assessment: This is a useful book for any gynecologists, urologists, or endocrinologists in practice or training who treat patients with infertility. It offers concise definitions as well as coherent tables and algorithms outlining the etiologies, diagnostic evaluations, and treatments of male infertility.

Without much ado, leaps right into articles that average about a third of a page each. Among the topics are the abstinence period, AIDS, immotile cilia syndrome, microsurgical epididymal sperm aspiration, scrotal temperature, sperm collection techniques, and the zona-free hamster egg penetration test. Lightly illustrated with drawings and black-and-white electron micrographs. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
