Fetal Therapy : Scientific Basis and Critical Appraisal of Clinical Benefits, Hardback Book

Fetal Therapy : Scientific Basis and Critical Appraisal of Clinical Benefits Hardback

Edited by Mark D. (University of Birmingham) Kilby, Anthony Johnson, Dick Oepkes


Updated by a team of internationally renowned experts, this book gives a thorough overview of fetal pathophysiology and an evidence base for in utero: both medical (non-invasive) and surgical treatments.

Many topics are expanded to cover recent advances, including: stem cell transplantation; tissue scaffolding; minimally invasive approaches to 'open fetal surgery'; the etiology, prevention and treatment of preterm birth and PROM; the genetic etiologies of fetal disease; and gene therapy.

In addition, there are in-depth discussions as to the role of open fetal myelomeningocele repair and several fetoscopic approaches to therapy.

The international editors have added important new chapters on reducing stillbirth and prenatal counselling.

This book is an invaluable reference guide to the latest fetal therapy options, and an essential, in-depth study book for maternal-fetal and neonatology specialists.
