This new edition has been fully revised to present the latest developments in gynaecology. Beginning with an introduction to the anatomy and development of female pelvic organs, the following chapters describe the diagnosis and treatment of both common and rare gynaecological diseases and disorders. Many chapters have been revised and expanded, and several new chapters have been added including one dedicated to Current Topics which discusses stem cells and therapies. Presented in a user-friendly format, with numerous graphics, diagrams, tables and charts, the sixth edition also uses colour codes to highlight key points. The accompanying interactive DVD ROM demonstrates hysterectomy procedures.
