About the Authors
  • Acute gynaecological problems are among the most common reasons for women of reproductive age to seek medical help. Emergency outpatient visits now outnumber elective clinical appointments in gynaecology. With a growing number of patients, increasingly complex diagnostic algorithms and a wide range of management options, the participation and training of senior doctors in this field is vital to ensure women receive the best possible treatment. This book provides a thorough overview of acute gynaecology and early pregnancy and has been designed to reflect the syllabus of the RCOG's Advanced Training Skills Module (ATSM) in 'Early pregnancy and emergency gynaecology'. It covers the diagnosis and management of routine clinical problems, such as miscarriage and tubal pregnancy, as well as less frequently seen presentations, such as uncommon forms of ectopic pregnancy and trophoblastic disease. The use of drugs in early pregnancy and management organisational aspects of care are also addressed.

    • Key reading for those undertaking the ATSM in 'Early pregnancy and emergency gynaecology' as well as all trainees and consultants looking to develop and update their skills in this area
    • Covers less frequently seen presentations, such as uncommon forms of ectopic pregnancy and trophoblastic disease, as well as the use of drugs in early pregnancy
    • Addresses management and organisational aspects of care
