The content highlights areas such as fetal medicine, which is increasingly utilising non-invasive techniques for prenatal diagnosis. There are chapters on the mechanisms behind parturition, the challenge of stillbirth and optimisation of the management of high risk mothers, such as those with cardiac disease, all of which remain relevant in day-to-day obstetric practice. Packages of care designed to enhance recovery after caesarean section and gynaecological surgery have recently been proposed and are covered here. Best practice in the management of common conditions in general gynaecology and early pregnancy are also explored, along with new thinking about the regulation of reproduction and the treatment of infertile couples. In oncology, the role of genetics and infection in gynaecological cancer are reviewed.
Systematic reviews provide evidence-based summaries to answer focussed clinical questions.
