Essentials of Gynecology

by Sabaratnam Arulkumaran, V Sivanesaratnam, Alokendu Chatterjee, Pratap Kumar

This book Essentials of Gynecology takes the life cycle approach starting in sex differentiation, abnormal development of reproductive organs to pediatric and adolescent health. This is followed by menarche, menstruation and menstrual problems. The issues related to contraception and subfertility is dealt with in detail. Sexually transmitted diseases and pelvic inflammatory diseases are described followed by benign and malignant neoplasms of the reproductive tract. Menopause and cancer screening is discussed based on the current data and available evidence. There is little doubt that gynecological problems are increasingly managed medically and by minimally invasive surgery and where possible by outpatient procedures. Detailed descriptions of these are provided including the latest in technology. The authors for each chapter have specially been selected based on their expertise and experience. A large number of figures have been included to make the subject easy to understand and to make an “imprint” in the reader’s mind, so that the subject matter will remain for years to come. This book is a synthesis of knowledge covering these aspects from multiple international authors. It is an excellent reference book for undergraduates, general practitioners and trainees in gynecology.
