Disorders of menstruation are among the most common problems encountered in womens' health and include early, delayed and irregular menstrual cycles, painful menses and excessive menstrual bleeding, and early menopause. Their treatment presents a variety of complex challenges, especially since some of the treatments used can themselves result in further menstrual and hormonal complications.

This text provides a comprehensive review of our current knowledge of the causes of these conditions, their investigation, and the treatment options available. It has been designed as a practical reference for the doctors' office or clinic, presenting the physician with a detailed account of how to assess the patient and then determine the most appropriate course of treatment, which may extend beyond pharmacologic interventions to surgery. Practice points conclude each section and summarize the most important clinical and management issues.

With the introduction of new post-graduate Medical training in the UK, virtually all doctors will be exposed to some form of surgical training prior to specialization. Many of these doctors will have little exposure to surgical emergencies in medical school. Thus, they may unnecessarily refer to a senior doctor when not needed, or catastrophically neglect a patient needing urgent surgical opinion.

 

Surgical Emergencies in Clinical Practice is a compact resource which allows any clinician, without previous surgical knowledge, to be able to make an accurate diagnosis and have a treatment plan for the whole spectrum of surgical emergencies. The essential steps of initial management of all surgical emergencies is outlined in a manner that can be used on a day-to-day basis for clinical management.

 

Written by experts in the field, Surgical Emergencies in Clinical Practice is a valuable tool for all junior doctors and medical students in the UK, Europe, Asia and North America. It will also be of interest to nurse practitioners, general practitioners and allied health professionals managing these patients.
