Part of the female reproductive system, the fallopian tubes are two thin tubes, positioned one on each side of the uterus, which help lead a fertilised egg from the ovaries to the uterus. This book is a complete guide to the role of fallopian tubes and the diagnosis and management of associated diseases and disorders. Divided into five sections, the text begins with an overview of anatomy and function.
The following sections examine obstetrical and gynaecological aspects including infertility, infections, ectopic pregnancy and malignancy. The final sections discuss tubal surgery and new frontiers including stem cells, robotic surgery and transplantation. Numerous descriptive illustrations and tables have been included to enhance learning.
