Since the publication of the first edition, there have been a number of important innovations in hysteroscopy both in technique and equipment design. The internationally renowned author, a pioneer, researcher, and teacher of these techniques, has fully revised and updated the text to reflect these advances. Now in full color, the book reviews the fundamentals with a cohesive and unified philosophy that the author has developed over many years. This edition contains intrauterine figures and the same qualities that made the first edition a success, such as ease of reading, concise descriptions, and practical guidelines for the performance of diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy.
