Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Replacing and superseding all other works in this area, Dr. Lucinda L. Veeck's An Atlas of Human Gametes and Conceptuses is the only book now in print that shows the typical and atypical morphology of human oocytes, sperm, and preembryos collected and cultured during the course of in vitro fertilization treatment. Brilliantly illustrated with hundreds of original photographs in color as well as black and white, the book also details and fully illustrates specific new reproductive technologies and provides the reader with both a glossary and a concise history of in vitro fertilization. Includes bibliographic references and index.

Book News Annotation:

Divided about in half between text reviewing human gametes and conceptuses and illustrations of them, mostly in color. Veeck (embryology, Cornell U.) discusses such aspects as the oocyte and spermatozoon, the cleaving human pre-embryo, abnormal morphology, cryopreservation, assisted hatching and fragment removal, and pre- implantation genetic diagnosis. The illustrations not only aid in identifying elements and characterizing normal and abnormal conditions, but also demonstrate techniques used in assisted reproduction, particularly in-vitro fertilization.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

An authoritative work by a world-renowned pioneer, this is an outstanding collection of more than 400 photographs in full color, demonstrating the normal and abnormal morphology of human oocytes, spermatozoa, and preembryos cultured during the course of IVF treatment. The atlas covers developments in the IVF laboratory including intracytoplasmic sperm injection, assisted hatching, fragment removal, and preimplantation genetic diagnosis. It captures the earliest events of human development and is an invaluable aid to embryologists, andrologists, urologists, endocrinologists, general physicians, and technicians in infertility practices.
