About this book

This book will help the reader to recognize, diagnose, and treat most of the acute abdominal disorders that may be encountered in the pregnant patient, whether associated with or incidental to the pregnancy. A wide range of conditions are addressed, including some which are very rare as well as those more frequently seen, such as acute appendicitis and acute cholecystitis. The principles underlying diagnosis and therapy are clearly explained. Particular features in the clinical presentation of pregnant patients are highlighted, and specific diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms and protocols, described. Attention is drawn to the diagnostic difficulties that may arise from atypical presentations and to restrictions on the use of certain diagnostic imaging studies. The book is designed to meet the needs of both the gynecologist and the general or abdominal surgeon, who together form the multidisciplinary team mandatory for effective treatment that will safeguard mother and baby.

Reviews

“This book contains most of the information needed to address the problem of acute abdomen in pregnancy and brings state of the art principles and practice of emergency, abdominal surgery, obstetrics, gynecology and maternal-fetal medicine. The book should prompt clinicians, primarily surgeons and obstetricians to make faster and more precise diagnosis, earlier surgical interventions with the optimal outcome for the mother and child, by a multidisciplinary approach.” (Translation into English; Original review: Prof. Dr. Tomislav Luetić, Lijec Vjesn, Vol. 137 (5-6), May-June, 2015)

“This book provides a detailed description of the various clinical scenarios in which we encounter acute abdominal conditions in pregnant patients. … This is an excellent resource for practicing acute care surgeons and obstetricians/gynecologists who are most likely to encounter these patients. It also is a very useful resource for general practitioners, since they frequently are the first healthcare professionals who encounter pregnant patients with these conditions.” (Prashant Khullar, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2015)
