Thoroughly revised edition of this well-known text is prompted by the popularity of the previous edition among both students and practitioners. The revised edition has been endeavoured keeping the key objective of Dr Fernando Arias alive—to provide Obs & Gynae residents, fellows in Maternal–Fetal Medicine, obstetricians, general physicians and interested nurses and medical students with a source of practical information about complications of pregnancy. • Most of the chapters have been completely re-written. • A new chapter ‘Impact of Advances in Genetics on Prenatal Diagnosis’ has been added, which does justice to the enormous advances in the field of Prenatal Genetics in the recent years. • Our understanding of multiple pregnancies has increased considerably. A separate chapter on multiple pregnancy has been added given that multiple pregnancies are at high risk of developing problems and therefore require greater attention. • An entire section of intrapartum problems has been added, making this a comprehensive Obstetric text. • The editors have managed to persuade leaders in the field to write for this edition. The chapters are authored by researchers working on the coalface. Their first-hand experience, knowledge, wisdom and hard work are evident in this edition.

Real-time ultrasonography has entered office practice in obstetrics and gynecology. With increasing numbers of sonography systems entering the ambulatory office setting, obstetric sonography at a routine level (level I) has largely been the targeted area. Recent developments in gynecologic real-time sonography have, however, significantly enlarged the sphere of applicability of sonographic equipment in an office setting. The very rapid growth of follicular sonography in infertility assessment and management has made real-time sonography of increasing importance to the gynecologic practitioner. In office settings like the authors', gynecologic office sonography represents close to 50% of all ordered sonography. This handbook of office sonography in obstetrics and gynecology was conceived to reflect these changes in practice patterns. This volume is not meant to replace standard sonography texts for the full-time sonographer but is instead directed toward the practicing obstetrician/gynecologist who uses real-time sonography in the office setting within the framework of daily practice. Technical comments were therefore restricted to a minimum, with practical advice and photographic examples taking their place. Most of the sonographic real-time images were retrieved from the authors' own files. However, some were obtained through the generosity of friends and colleagues, for which we would like to extend acknowledgment and appreciation. Similar appreciation is extended to Dr. Haim Elrad and Dr. Jari Friberg, who also participated in the editorial process; to Sheila Martin, who performed superbly as our editorial assistant, a most difficult responsibility; and to Hilary Evans, our editor at Plenum Publishing Corporation.

Chorion villus sampling for early diagnosis of congenital and inherited fetal abnormalities is becoming an increasingly important and popular technique. There is every likelihood it will replace amniocentesis as the first choice for prenatal diagnosis. Despite growing interest in the chorion villus sampling (C.V.S.) test, it has been difficult to acquire up-to-date information about it. This important book provides a complete overview of the test: the technique itself, interpretation and implication of the results, and the establishment of a service and comparison with other tests. Written in a clear and easy-to-read form with numerous illustrations, the book informs family practitioners, obstetricians, residents and genetic counselors about C.V.S. counseling both before referral and when the results have been received.

Helps you develop and assess pedigrees to make diagnoses, evaluate risk, and counsel patients The Second Edition of The Practical Guide to the Genetic Family History not only shows how to take a medical-family history and record a pedigree, but also explains why each bit of information gathered is important. It provides essential support in diagnosing conditions with a genetic component. Moreover, it aids in recommending genetic testing, referring patients for genetic counseling, determining patterns of inheritance, calculating risk of disease, making decisions for medical management and surveillance, and informing and educating patients. Based on the author's twenty-five years as a genetic counselor, the book also helps readers deal with the psychological, social, cultural, and ethical problems that arise in gathering a medical-family history and sharing findings with patients. Featuring a new Foreword by Arno Motulsky, widely recognized as the founder of medical genetics, and completely updated to reflect the most recent findings in genetic medicine, this Second Edition presents the latest information and methods for preparing and assessing a pedigree, including: Value and utility of a thorough medical-family history Directed questions to ask when developing a medical-family history for specific disease conditions Use of pedigrees to identify individuals with an increased susceptibility to cancer Verification of family medical information Special considerations when adoptions or gamete donors are involved Ethical issues that may arise in recording a pedigree Throughout the book, clinical examples based on hypothetical families illustrate key concepts, helping readers understand how real issues present themselves and how they can be resolved. This book will enable all healthcare providers, including physicians, nurses, medical social workers, and physician assistants, as well as genetic counselors, to take full advantage of the pedigree as a primary tool for making a genetic risk assessment and providing counseling for patients and their families.

Herr Alfons Staudach war ein langjähriges Mitglied des anatomischen Institutes der Karl-Franzens-Universität in Graz, wo er sein besonderes Augenmerk auf die Vertiefung des plastischen Vorstellungsvermögens im Dienst einer vollständigen Erfassung der makroskopisch-anatomischen Strukturen ausgerichtet hat. In diesem Werke wurde eine so große Übereinstimmung zwischen den Ultraschallschnittbildern und den anatomischen Schnitten anderer Indi viduen erreicht, wie man sie mit dieser Regelmäßigkeit und Überzeu gungskraft selbst bei der Fülle der Veröffentlichungen über Ultraschall diagnostik bis jetzt vergeblich suchen wird. Die Schnittebene und deren vertretene Typisierung sowie der gesamte Aufbau des Werkes sind so gewählt, daß auch ein morphologisch, weniger Versierter eine wertvolle Grundlage für seine Untersuchungen finden wird und auch die auf die sem Gebiete schon sehr Erfahrenen wesentliche Informationen finden können, da in der anatomischen Literatur für diesen fetalen Bereich brauchbare topographische Lagebeziehungen oder Angaben über die Ausformung der Organe selbst weitgehend fehlen. Den künftigen Benützern dieses Werkes darf auf diesem Gebiet Vorteil und Anregung im Vertrauen auf berechtigte Wertschätzung gewünscht werden.
