A comprehensive guide to latest developments and knowledge in obstetrics and gynaecology. Divided into three sections – obstetrics, gynaecology and family planning – each chapter discusses a different condition and its treatment. The book deals with practical aspects of routine obstetrics, such as the management of foetal growth restriction, perinatal asphyxia and resuscitation, anaemia, and exercise during pregnancy; along with newer advances like laparoscopic interventions during pregnancy, cord blood stem cells and use of nitric oxide donors.
As in CANCER CHEMOTHERAPY 1, this volume brings to the reader highlights in three different areas of cancer therapeutics: new concepts and models; drug classes; and clinical settings. Topics were chosen because of their timeliness or probable current impact in cancer treatment. Authors were selected on the basis of their ability to provide a critical overview of specific subjects and their involvement in original work. I shall review the aims of this second volume, and then elaborate on the scope of its con tents. The principal aim of the volumes on cancer chemotherapy in the' Cancer Treatment and Research' series, as stated in the preface to the first volume, is to assemble in a concentrated form selected ingredients of chemothera peutic progress. These ingredients are to include concepts in therapeutic strategy, pre-clinical studies, development of major classes of compounds, identificatlon of new directions and of landmarks of clinical progress. Thus we do not foresee overlap with series which provide an yearly update of chemotherapy in an encyclopedic manner, or reviews of cancer chemother apy. Unlike those publications, our volumes are not intended to seek a place in shelves as a reference manual. It is this Editor's hope that persons repre senting various biomedical disciplines will seek the' Cancer Treatment and Research' chemotherapy volumes to survey advances in the field at regular intervals.

Progress in Clinical Endocrinology presents a critical review of role of hormones in metabolism. The book discusses the endocrine regulation of protein metabolism; the etiology of endemic goiter; and the relation of nodular goiter to thyroid carcinoma. Some of the topics covered in the text are the description of hyperparathyroidism; the use of radioactive iodine in the diagnosis, study, and treatment of thyroid diseases; and hypothyroidism in children. The clinical use of antithyroid drugs; the pituitary regulation of adrenal cortical activity; and the influence of the adrenal cortex on the metabolism of food are also considered. The book further tackles the surgical treatment and postoperative care of hyperparathyroidism; the clinical diagnosis of Cushing’s syndrome; and the analysis of the diagnosis and treatment of Addison’s disease. A study of the theory and practice of diabetes treatment is also presented. A chapter is devoted to the diagnostic significance of pregnandiol excretion. The book can provide useful information to endocrinologists, doctors, students, and researchers.

It is clear today that several prostaglandins play an important role in the regulation of many of the physiological events of the reproductive organs in the human. Both naturally occurring prostaglandins and their analogues are used routinely in many countries to ripen the cervix and induce labour at term as well as to dilate the cervix and to terminate pregnancy. Prostaglandin biosynthesis inhibitors are widely used in the treatment of primary dysmenorrhoea. The editors have aimed at an accurate, thorough, yet easily under standable review of the status in 1986 of medical knowledge regarding both the physiological importance and the clinical use of prostaglan dins and their inhibitors in obstetrics and gynaecology. I believe this book will be of value for all clinicians concerned with reproductive health. The list of authors guarantees an authoritative and up-to-date review of this active field.

This book presents 100 clinical cases in Obstetrics. It will assist UGs in preparing for the practical and viva voce examinations. PGs will be benefited for their clinical case presentations. It will also serve them as a handy resource for reviewing, just before exams. Moreover, it will assist students preparing for postgraduate entrance examinations, where current trend is to ask more of clinically oriented questions. Practitioners of Obs & Gyne department and Physicians will also find this book valuable About the Author : - Shirish N Daftary, Professor Emeritus, Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Former Dean and Medical Advisor, Nowrosjee Wadia Maternity Hospital, Mumbai.

This book reflects a broad spectrum of current opinions and progress in the surgical management of liver, pancreatic and biliary disease. The enormous advances in diagnostic imaging techniques and in interven tional, radiological and biliary approaches, the pathophysiological problems and their management manifest often as complications in the post-operative period, new techniques and the results of surgical approaches are all thorough ly documented. Historical background is commented upon by Dr. Kenneth Warren of Boston in the first chapter. Subsequent chapters deal with a variety of subjects but always emphasizing differences of opinion and approach and maintaining the discussive environment so typical to the present-day approach to the topic. Professor Bengmark's efforts to introduce a forum for wide discussion for diseases of the liver, pancreas and biliary tract and many recent advances in research and technology to aspects of the clinical management and outcome of patients is well rewarded in this balanced publication. Advances in this field of surgery have been and continue to be so rapid that such documentation is not only necessary but very welcome.
