Hysteroscopy now plays a major role in the rapid diagnosis and effective treatment of uterine pathology and has been facilitated by the increasing availability of hysteroscopes in hospitals and ambulatory centres. Ambulatory Hysteroscopy: An Evidence-Based Guide to Diagnosis and Therapy in the Outpatient Setting offers an important addition to this rapidly advancing and exciting field of gyaecological practice.
This book provides a comprehensive and practical guide to diagnostic and operative techniques. Using multiple choice questions and key points, Ambulatory Hysteroscopy presents self-assessments to tests readers' knowledge, and aims to complement courses and modules being developed by specialist societies, professional bodies and Royal Colleges in the UK. Featuring high quality colour pictures and diagrams, this book also equips healthcare professionals with the technical concepts and their applications required to succeed as a competent hysteroscopist.
Written by three experienced clinicians, Ambulatory Hysteroscopy should prove invaluable for the continued professional development of all those involved in women's healthcare, including nurses, general practitioners, trainers of hysteroscopy and candidates preparing for MRCOG examinations.
