Summary

The 17th edition of this classic text will be welcomed worldwide by medical undergraduates on obstetrics and gynaecological rotations. Written and edited by a dynamic new team, all leading specialists from major teaching hospitals, the book has been completely revised to meet the needs of today's students. In line with recent curriculum changes, the new edition integrates basic sciences and clinical material to aid a thorough understanding of the underlying disease processes, which is essential for undergraduates. While maintaining the superlative quality of the previous editions, all of the chapters have been completely rewritten to present core information succinctly and easily. Physiology and pathophysiology are fully integrated with clinical material to ensure a thorough understanding of the underlying disease processes, thus enabling the student to take a logical approach to diagnosis and treatment. Separate chapters are included on obstetric emergencies, imaging in obstetrics, neonataology, and emotional and psychiatric changes in pregnancy and the puerperium. The new full colour text design incorporates key points and summary boxes highlighting the essential facts and clinical relevance, with illustrative clinical cases included in each chapter. The book contains over 200 colour illustrations and clinical photographs.
