The 6th edition of this classic text, ow renamed Obstetric Medicine, concentrates on practical
issues of clinical management and addresses both common and uncommon medical and surgical
problems encountered during pregnancy.

The name change acknowledges the evolution of an emerging special interest domain as physicians are increasingly caring for pregnant women with acute and chronic medical conditions that require complex assessment and sophisticated care. The text will be invaluable to practitioners who need to clarify and manage the intricacies of such cases.

The editors are an obstetrician with a longstanding interest in the management of surgical
and medical complications of pregnancy and an internist-nephrologist with extensive experience
in the management of medical diseases during gestation. They have assembled a group of contributors with an exceptionally broad range of backgrounds and interests, who in turn have emphasized clinical management approaches that are grounded in our understanding of pathophysiology and are functional in their attention to practical detail.


• New chapters addressing management of trauma, burns, liver disease, and obesity in the pregnant patient.
• Comprehensive coverage of common as well as uncommon conditions encountered during pregnancy.
• Use of logic trees and inclusion of a brief list of clinical “pearls” at the end of each chapter.
