This authoritative international text on fetal therapy covers all three types of fetal therapy: transplacental drug treatment, invasive procedures, and fetal surgery. This volume emphasizes treatments that have become established in clinical practice, while also reviewing methods that have failed to live up to initial expectations and discussing the likely impact of new therapies on the horizon. The editors head a team of American, European, and Australasian contributors, all of whom are leading experts in their respective fields. The text is evidence-based and balanced, finding common ground between the opposing camps of "enthusiasts" and "therapeutic nihilists".
