Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, Paperback / softback Book


Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common reproductive health problems of women.

Despite this, its effective treatment remains a significant challenge to the medical profession.

This second edition (published 2007) of a highly successful and well-reviewed book is a thorough update on the syndrome, its aetiology, pathology, impact on infertility, and effective medical management.

Every chapter has been extensively referenced and completely revised and updated.

New chapters cover: hyperinsulinemic insulin resistance; new treatments including in-vitro maturation; paediatric origins, including the Barker Hypothesis; adrenocortal dysfunction; polycystic ovary syndrome in non-western societies; surgical treatment of obesity associated with polycystic ovaries, and treatment with vitamins and minerals.

The book is a reference text for all clinicians with an interest in reproductive endocrinology, including gynaecologists, IVF specialists and obstetricians.
