McGraw-Hill Education / Medical; 3rd edition
Clinicians have been provided with clear, step-by-step, and detailed guidance for every major surgical procedure performed in current obstetrical practice ever since the publication of the first edition of Cunningham and Gilstrap's Operative Obstetrics. The third edition of this book is now available. This well-respected classic places a strong emphasis on the scientific foundations of clinical obstetrics. It is enhanced by more than 670 illustrations, the majority of which are in full color and are brand new to this edition. These illustrations include magnetic resonance images (MRI), sonograms, pictures, photographs, and micrographs.
The definitive textbook on obstetrical techniques, thoroughly revised and updated to account for the latest developments in the field
This third edition has been thoroughly revised and redesigned with a more streamlined presentation that incorporates current guidelines from reputable professional and academic organizations such as the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine. A significant portion of this material is laid out in tables that have been freshly designed with the sole purpose of making it simple to understand and put into practice.
The following are some of the reasons why this is considered the definitive text on obstetrical procedures:
• Divided into 4 portions that make sense logically: (1) General Considerations, which contains important fundamentals of surgery such as the choosing of needles and sutures, knots, surgical instruments, anatomy, and incisions and closures; (2) Antepartum, which refers to the management of pregnancy-related issues during the first trimester of the pregnancy, as well as fetal diagnosis and therapy, and the preparation of the gravida for surgery; (3) Intrapartum, which focuses on complicated vaginal and cesarean deliveries; (4) Postpartum, which provides information on obstetrical hemorrhage, surgical complications, and puerperal sterilization; and (5) Peripartum, which discusses the management of postpartum depression.
• Comprehensive coverage of all operative obstetrics-related topics
• Completely revised to incorporate the most recent findings and developments in the fields of laparoscopy, perioperative radiological imaging, fetal treatment, placenta accreta, and clinical simulation
• BRAND NEW color drawings for surgical procedures give a visual guide for both straightforward and intricate operations.
