    Keeping up with the rapid growth in this field, A Practical Manual of Hysteroscopy and Endometrial Ablation: A Clinical Cookbook covers current and emerging endometrial ablation procedures. It provides practical, step-by-step illustrated descriptions of basic and advanced techniques and new methods. The editors, Resad Pasic and Ronald L. Levine, have brought together a group of experts renowned not only for their knowledge but also their ability to teach. The subtitle, A Clinical Cookbook, was purposely chosen to emphasize that you can literally follow the individual "recipes" of procedures to assure their safe and effective use.

    Containing the most up-to-date and thorough material available, the book addresses the present hysteroscopic therapies and provides in depth discussion of the current knowledge of hysteroscopy and ablation techniques. Each chapter has the main points highlighted in boxes separated from the text for easy review. The digital drawings were made by use of computer graphics by an outstanding graphic designer, Branko Modrakovic. The illustrations, whether line drawings or actual color photographs, clearly deliver the message. You can quickly grasp what to do, and just as importantly, what not to do.
