This handbook is a concise and evidence-based reference for common gynecologic consults, inpatient management, and postoperative complications. Written in response to the contemporary gynecology training environment, it addresses the needs of residents, with the objective of optimizing patient safety and outcomes. The book is organized to address calls and consults in the areas of gynecologic disorders and inpatient management. In addition to common issues of miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, and vaginal bleeding, it delves extensively into postoperative complications that are relevant to the fields of benign gynecology, gynecologic oncology, urogynecology, and reproductive endocrinology. Differential diagnoses, pertinent physical examination techniques, laboratory and imaging findings, and management steps are presented for each patient complaint. Handbook of Consult and Inpatient Gynecology is a high-yield guide to diagnosis and management of common gynecologic problems for residents and clinicians.

This book presents the first registered study of more than 1200 aborted human foetuses
The chapters look at anthropometric and enzymatic data, hormonal studies and the ontogeny of immunity of the aborted human fetuses giving a unique perspective on the growth and maturation of the human fetus
The authors give a unique insight into abnormalities and aberrations in the human fetus which can lead to disease and health complications in later life
This unique book delves into the mysteries of human fetal growth and maturation. Growing knowledge in genetics indicates that factors that impact on/influence fetal growth and maturation may have a role in determining a person’s health and disease in later years. Placental, maternal, environmental, nutrient as well as fetal genome factors each play a role in producing a healthy, unhealthy or abnormal baby. A study of fetal growth and maturation is therefore basic to the understanding of why fetal growth problems occur, what implications these can have for adult disease, and how clinical intervention can help to reverse growth problems. The present study will be comprehensive and will be a major contribution to the fields of gynecology, genetics, obstetrics, biochemistry, molecular biology and clinical medicine. It will include cutting edge research in the field as well as explorations on clinical interventions in fetal growth, which will not only add to existing knowledge but also prompt future research.
The two Editors are distinguished in their fields and both have extensive clinical and research experience. They felt that they could use their expertise to create a book that will help students, practitioners, researchers and others to understand the subject of gestation, growth and maturation and its implications from a multi-dimensional point of view, which will help them develop their own expertise in a cutting-edge and developing field. They have brought toget
her medical scientists, clinical practitioners, embryologists, endocrinologists, immunologists, gynecologists, obstetricians, reproductive and molecular biologists, geneticists and many others to create a state-of-the-art book on a subject with increasing demand for further knowledge. It aims to integrates different disciplines to give a holistic view of human fetal growth maturation.

The accomplishments of pioneering doctors such as John Peter Mettauer, James Marion Sims, and Nathan Bozeman are well documented. It is also no secret that these nineteenth-century gynecologists performed experimental caesarean sections, ovariotomies, and obstetric fistulae repairs primarily on poor and powerless women. Medical Bondage breaks new ground by exploring how and why physicians denied these women their full humanity yet valued them as “medical superbodies” highly suited for medical experimentation.
In Medical Bondage, Cooper Owens examines a wide range of scientific literature and less formal communications in which gynecologists created and disseminated medical fictions about their patients, such as their belief that black enslaved women could withstand pain better than white “ladies.” Even as they were advancing medicine, these doctors were legitimizing, for decades to come, groundless theories related to whiteness and blackness, men and women, and the inferiority of other races or nationalities.
Medical Bondage moves between southern plantations and northern urban centers to reveal how nineteenth-century American ideas about race, health, and status influenced doctor-patient relationships in sites of healing like slave cabins, medical colleges, and hospitals. It also retells the story of black enslaved women and of Irish immigrant women from the perspective of these exploited groups and thus restores for us a picture of their lives.

Provides hands-on information how to manage pregnant cancer patients in clinical practice
Written by experts in the field from a multidisciplinary perspective
Unique resource citing key literature on the topic
This book provides hands-on information on how to manage pregnant cancer patients in clinical practice. In this context a multidisciplinary perspective is essential, and contributions are accordingly presented from experts in surgical management, medical oncology, radiotherapy, pharmacokinetics, obstetric care, psychological care, neonatal and pediatric care. In addition a series of chapters focused on management in particular disease settings are presented, including breast cancer, melanoma, cervical cancer, ovarian tumors, lymphoma, leukemia, and thoracic cancers.
The book reflects the major progress that has been achieved in the care of pregnant cancer patients in the recent years as important data have become available on patient management, and fetal safety in addition to valuable preclinical research on the impact of pregnancy on pharmacokinetics of anti-cancer agents. Edited and authored by worldwide leaders in the field, it will serve as a valuable resource not only for oncologists but also for obstetricians, gynecologists, neonatologists, and pediatricians caring for pregnant cancer patients and their newborns.

This book offers a state-of-the-art overview of the vital relationship between human microbiota and infant and child health. Renowned clinical-experimental experts in this field discuss the development of microbiota during early life and review the environmental inputs that affect the developing infants gut microbiota, such as early diet and (postnatal) medical interventions. They further describe the interplay between gut microbiota and functional systems of the body, from the immune system to the central nervous system.The book discusses a range of infant and childhood diseases that are associated with microbial changes or dysbiosis, such as gastrointestinal disorders, allergic diseases, autoimmune disorders and respiratory disorders. Additionally mechanisms by which microbial dysbiosis may influence behaviour in infants are discussed. Other topics include the use of current tools in molecular microbiology for microbiota-related research and clinical practice. In the management of particular paediatric disorders, the potential of microbial manipulation with pre- and probiotics during infancy and childhood is increasingly being investigated. This book presents the evidence supporting their use in practice and reviews safety aspects.Microbiota in health and disease: from pregnancy to childhood has the ambition to provide the reader with an overview of the most recent and stunning advances in the field of infant and child microbiota and their role in health, disease and prevention. As such, it is an excellent resource for health care professionals, students and researchers in the field of life sciences.
