Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The field of reproductive technology witnessed enormous advances in the 1980s which have greatly altered the diagnosis and management of infertility. This book surveys the technological advances in infertility which the clinician must understand to optimize patient care. However, the same technologies that provide new hope for infertile couples generate increasingly complicated social concerns. Therefore, the second part of this volume explores the significant psychosocial, legal, and ethical issues which surround infertility. Gynecologists, general practitioners, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and nurses working with infertile couples will gain meaningful insight into the many aspects of current infertility treatment. Experts in medical law and ethics will also find this book to be fascinating reading.

Book News Annotation:

A wealth of technological advances in recent years has greatly expanded the clinician's options in the diagnosis and management of infertility. This volume provides clinicians with the up-to-date treatment advances that have become essential to optimal patient care, and also addresses the social, psychological, legal and ethical concerns that accompany such advances. It explores such issues as donor oocytes and embryos, the role of embryos in prenatal diagnosis, the intraovarian growth factor system, diethylstilbestrol and infertility, public policy and the new technologies, the adoptee's search for birth parents, and sexual dysfunction and infertility.
