Female Infertilty: Core Principles and Clinical Management

by Jayant Mehta, Bryan Woodward

The purpose of Female Infertility: Core Principles and Clinical Management is to provide a comprehensive understanding of various aspects of female reproduction in order to overcome infertility with appropriate treatments. The book opens with an introduction to the basic anatomy and physiology and concludes with a chapter on fertility preservation for future treatment. Chapters in between cover a broad range of topics: those dedicated to investigative techniques describe how to establish the physiologically normal functionality of the ovaries, the measurement of ovarian reserves, stimulation protocols and the process of oogenesis and oocyte collection. Conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome and endometriosis influence the quality of oocytes and implantation. Dedicated chapters therefore address the underlying causes of these diseases and how to treat them to achieve successful pregnancies. The preservation of oocytes offers women facing chemo- or radiotherapy the opportunity to realize their reproductive potential: relevant techniques and concepts are described in chapters on cryo-banking and oncology. Concluding chapters address future technologies, including deriving oocytes from stem cells. Correcting mitochondrial disease by application of the three-parent child concept is also discussed. The dynamic journey of describing female reproduction ends with a chapter on transplantation of cryopreserved ovaries. This book will serve as an essential resource for all clinicians, nurses and clinical scientists specializing in reproductive medicine, gynecology, oncology, infertility and embryology.
