New Edition on the Ob/Gyn Collection
Cunningham and Gilstrap's Operative Obstetrics
The 3rd edition of Operative Obstetrics is now in full color with more than 670 original anatomic and surgical illustrations and images. Now re-named Cunningham and Gilstrap’s Operative Obstetrics after two of its prominent authors, F. Gary Cunningham, MD, co-author of Williams Obstetrics and Williams Gynecology, and Larry C. Gilstrap, III, MD, Executive Director of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The book is a highly valuable resource of evidence-based obstetrical surgical procedures for residents, fellows, and practicing obstetricians. Chapters are logically organized in four sections:
- General Considerations, which includes valuable surgical basics such as needle and suture selection, knots, surgical instruments, anatomy, and incisions and closures;
- Antepartum, which describes management of first-trimester pregnancy-related complications, fetal diagnosis and therapy, and preparation of the gravida for surgery;
- Intrapartum, which presents complex vaginal and cesarean deliveries; and
- Postpartum, which offers guidance on obstetrical hemorrhage, surgical complications, and puerperal sterilization.
The book is updated to include timely new material on laparoscopy, placenta accreta, fetal therapy, perioperative radiological imaging, and clinical simulation.
