With the emergence of early pregnancy issues in many hospitals, demand for educational support and the development of clear management guidelines is more pressing than ever. This book covers a wide range of early pregnancy-related issues, such as early pregnancy development, physiology and various pathological conditions encountered by clinicians in day-to-day practice, such as miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, trophoblastic disease and hyperemesis gravidarum. The book is primarily designed to provide a comprehensive summary for candidates preparing for the Part 2 MRCOG examination, and as such covers the RCOG curriculum for early pregnancy issues. It is also a valuable guide for all healthcare professionals working in the field, including trainees, consultants and midwives.

Although disorders of the coagulation system are uncommon in pregnancy, the two main hazards - haemorrhage and thromboembolism - are leading causes of direct maternal death in the UK and worldwide. Gynaecologists may encounter abnormal haemostasis as a cause of intractable menorrhagia or perioperative haemorrhage, and thromboembolism is a significant risk for women undergoing major gynaecological surgery. This book brings together various aspects of haemostasis in relation to obstetrics and gynaecology to provide practical guidance to clinicians, who may only occasionally encounter these problems. Emphasis is placed on the need for good working relationships and close liaison between obstetricians and gynaecologists, anaesthetists, haematologists and blood transfusion services. The book is primarily designed to provide a comprehensive summary for candidates preparing for the Part 2 MRCOG examination, and as such covers the RCOG curriculum for haemorrhage and thrombosis. It is also a valuable guide for all healthcare professionals working in the field.

While the upper renal tract remains the sole preserve of the urologist, gynaecologists have traditionally been involved in the assessment and treatment of female lower urinary tract infection disorders. Childbirth is a major causal factor in urogynaecology, and women often present with a combination of menstrual, genital, urinary and colorectal symptoms which require a holistic approach. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the assessment and treatment of a range of urogynaecological problems: urinary incontinence; lower urinary tract symptoms; overactive bladder; recurrent urinary tract infection; haematuria; painful bladder syndrome and interstitial cystitis; pregnancy and the renal tract; ageing and urogenital symptoms; fistulae and urinary tract injuries; pelvic organ prolapse; colorectal disorders; obstetric anal sphincter injuries. It has been comprehensively updated to reflect current clinical practice and new research since publication of the original edition.

The emerging field of prenatal gene therapy is founded on scientific and technical advances in fetal medicine, molecular biology and gene therapy. This preclinical research subject aims at applying gene therapy during pregnancy for the prevention of human diseases caused by early onset congenital or gestation related conditions. In Prenatal Gene Therapy: Concepts, Methods and Protocols, expert researchers in the field detail many of the protocols which are now commonly used to study gene therapy, fetal medicine and medical ethics. These include detailed protocols for vector production, for breeding and husbandry of the animal models, for the surgical procedures of gene delivery in large and small animals and for the methods of gene transfer analysis. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyTM series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Thorough and intuitive, Prenatal Gene Therapy: Concepts, Methods and Protocols seeks to aid scientists in the further study of prenatal disease and gene therapy projects beyond the scope of fetal medicine.
