DOODY'S BOOK REVIEW
REVIEWER'S EXPERT OPINION

Anthony Shanks, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)

Description

al controversies in obstetrics and gynecology.

Purpose

en presents the data and a conclusion for each one.

Audience

The book is written at the level of resident and practicing obstetricians/gynecologists.

Features

What this book lacks in aesthetics, it makes up for in content. A quick look at the table of contents immediately piques interest. "How many Antenatal Visits are Required?", "Preeclampsia: is there a role for prophylaxis?"

These chapters catch readers' interest and lead them to focused reading. The text is concise and easy to understand. For instance, in the chapter on aneuploidy, the data is clearly presented that highlight why it is controversial in twin gestations.

The evidence is then provided and nicely summarized. Another similar -- and unique -- question the book addresses is the number of visits required of a pregnant patient. The authors do a nice job explaining the background and coming up with practical recommendations. My only quibble is that there is enough material to potentially create a separate gynecology book. That would allow the authors to further explore in detail the topics that they present.

It is worthwhile to note that the authors cite relevant studies (such as HYPITAT).

This is an important feature that readers will appreciate.

Assessment

This is a surprisingly worthwhile book in an interesting format. The questions are clinically relevant and the evidence supporting the conclusions is sound.

It would be a worthwhile adjunct for journal clubs.
