A solid understanding of fetal medicine is essential for the practice of obstetrics and gynaecology. This comprehensive book, which has been extensively updated to reflect current clinical practice and developments in the field since publication of the original edition, provides a thorough overview of fetal medicine, covering: screening for chromosomal abnormalities; prenatal diagnostic techniques; the routine anomaly scan; fetal structural abnormalities; fetal therapy; prenatal diagnosis and management of non-immune hydrops fetalis; termination of pregnancy for fetal abnormality; fetal growth restriction; twin pregnancy; and fetal infection. The book is primarily designed to provide a comprehensive summary for candidates preparing for the Part 2 MRCOG examination, and as such covers the RCOG curriculum for fetal medicine. It is also a valuable guide for all healthcare professionals working in the field, including trainees, consultants and midwives.
