Modern Management of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding focuses on helping gynecologists refine their operative techniques and consider new approaches to the diagnosis, and treatment, of this highly challenging condition by investigating:
· current scientific and clinical trails
· varying menstruation conditions
· less evasive management options versus surgical options
· definitive surgical corrections
· new forms of conservative therapy
Written by an internationally recognized team of experts and filled with scientific diagrams, photos, and illustrations, this cutting-edge new text covers the full range of surgical and medical treatments for menorrhagia, including the full rage of ablation corrections in an easy to read step-by-step format.
