Without a doubt, the rapid growth and variety of assisted reproduction techniques (ART) has been a major factor in the increasing number of twins, and particularly, of higher-multiple births throughout the developed world. Almost one of every two twin pairs and the vast majority of higher-order multiples now result from the implementation of (ART). These iatrogenic multiple pregnancies threaten the health of mothers and their families and need to be understood by clinicians. Iatrogenic Multiple Pregnancy: Clinical Implications covers the full range of contemporary issues involved in iatrogenic multiple pregnancy. The text spans the spectrum from the highly pragmatic, as illustrated by how to avoid multiple gestation in ovulation induction, to the more esoteric and less well defined, as illustrated by the economic ramifications. The body of knowledge in this field is growing rapidly but has rarely been reviewed as a whole. This book brings together leading experts from all over the world to provide a critical and comprehensive overview of all aspects of the subject that are likely to be of significance to physicians. The text contains a wealth of information for professionals advising or caring for couples who are undergoing treatment that could result in a multiple pregnancy, as well as for those actually experiencing one or coping with their immediate family. Iatrogenic Multiple Pregnancy: Clinical Implications serves as a rich and invaluable resource that will enable you to provide the knowledgeable support these families need.
