Overview

The ten years since the first edition of Operative Obstetrics have witnessed considerable changes in obstetric practice. There has been a continued increase in the rate of cesarean delivery, and the use of minimally-invasive surgery has rapidly gained popularity. Social changes affecting practice have also been significant, prompting a reevaluation of the appropriateness of certain types of operations during pregnancy. This fully-updated edition includes chapters on cesarean delivery, birth injury, ectopic pregnancy, and common surgical complications. It features a new discussion of surgical procedures performed by non-physicians and an updated treatment of fetal surgery. The text also considers complicated and controversial subjects such as cervical insufficiency, pregnancy termination, instrumental delivery, and shoulder dystocia. Each of the four sections includes an in-depth analysis of the important ethical and legal issues underlying practice for the area in question. An expanded appendix reviews legal concepts pertinent to practitioners in the field of obstetrics.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A unique feature is the emphasis and attention given to medicolegal considerations of obstetrical medicine...Those who have an interest in the legal aspects of obstetrics will gain something extra from this book...A worthy reference for those in training and would make a nice contribution to a department's library."
—Doody's Review Service
Randall S. Kuhlmann
This new book's emphasis is on the many aspects of operative obstetrics. Each subject is dissected carefully, revealing management plans and their associated risks. A unique feature of this book is the discussion of ethical, moral, and medicolegal issues. The purpose is to review the various topics of operative obstetrics and evaluate many management strategies. The risk-to-benefit ratio is well addressed in the majority of the chapters. Overall, the book has met the authors' objectives. The audience includes the ^^student^^ of obstetrics. The authors and editors are credible authorities on their respective subjects. The book is very nicely illustrated. References are up-to-date and provide the reader with the ability to identify specific current articles as well as the classical ones. A unique feature is the way the pros and cons of a given procedure are presented. The schematics and illustrations are very nice. This book is useful to the obstetrical resident, student physician, and practitioner of obstetrics. Where pertinent, the medicolegal issues are well addressed, a feature unique to this book. Libraries and bookstores should carry this book.

A text on modern operative obstetrics that also recognizes ethical, moral, and medicolegal issues, and emphasizes patient communication and meticulous record keeping. Among the 54 contributors are 33 physicians, an ethicist, and 20 representatives from the legal profession. In each chapter, the medical authors review a subject from a clinical perspective and the legal editor(s) follow with a commentary, emphasizing the areas of major medicolegal concern. The final chapter is devoted to ethical issues. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
