Infertility

£19.99

Product description

1st edition
Ex-library book with usual stamps, but in very good condition. First page torn out and sticker to inner front cover

Infertility, as with many aspects of medicine, is at the mercy of rapid technological advance. Many of these developments initially seem attractive to both clinicians and patients, but need to be rigorously assessed if their real value is to be understood and clinical practice is to develop. In this book issues of importance to the management of infertile patients are discussed. The gaps in our knowledge which prevent a better understanding of the condition are identified, and recent developments, both clinical and scientific, are subjected to peer review and discussion. An important feature of the book is an acceptance that training in infertility practice is a real problem. This is perceived not only by the practising clinicians, both doctors and nurses, but particularly by the clinical scientists, including embryologists, who now provide such an essential part of the service. Similarly the provision of the clinical service has been examined in detail from a variety of standpoints, in an attempt to make sensible recommendations which balance real need with limited resource. The book is based on the papers presented and discussed at the 25th RCOG Study Group held in April 1992. The discussion after each paper was civilised but uncompromising and forms an important part of this publication. The rapid processing of the written and recorded material by the staff at the RCOG, and particularly Miss Sally Barber, has ensured that the book has been produced while the issues are live, the reviews contemporary and the discussions relevant.
