Macrosomia is a term used to describe a neonate with excessive birth weight and is diagnosed when the birth weight exceeds a threshold. Macrosomia is associated with numerous maternal as well as neonatal complications and is, therefore, a major cause of adverse pregnancy outcomes. This book addresses several risk factors, outcomes and potential health complications that may be caused by macrosomia.
Since 2006, when the "morning-after pill" Plan B was first sold over the counter, sales of emergency contraceptives have soared, becoming an $80 million industry in the United States and throughout the Western world. But emergency contraception is nothing new. It has a long and often contentious history as the subject of clashes not only between medical researchers and religious groups, but also between different factions of feminist health advocates. The Morning After tells the story of emergency contraception in America from the 1960s to the present day and, more importantly, it tells the story of the women who have used it. Side-stepping simplistic readings of these women as either radical feminist trailblazers or guinea pigs for the pharmaceutical industry, medical historian Heather Munro Prescott offers a portrait of how ordinary women participated in the development and popularization of emergency contraception, bringing a groundbreaking technology into the mainstream with the potential to alter radically reproductive health practices.

As minimally invasive surgical techniques evolve, the outlook for patients continues to brighten. This is also true for pregnant women experiencing conditions requiring surgical intervention during gestation. A physician's ability to identify potential risk factors in pregnant patients that present pre-op directly corresponds with their success in monitoring patients in post-op for adverse obstetric outcomes from non-obstetric surgeries. The utilization of laparoscopic techniques during surgery for pregnant patients has decreased the risk of fetal complications and increased the positive outlook for the duration of the pregnancy. This text is designed to present a minimally invasive approach to surgery that is non-obstetrics related and to educate readers on the potential risk factors and negative outcomes on pregnant patients following non-obstetric surgery. The various sections of this book will address issues faced by surgeons who undertake the task of operating on the pregnant patient. When performing non-obstetric surgery on a pregnant patient the ability to identify possible risk factors for adverse obstetric outcomes is important. Risk factors can be maternal-, surgical-, obstetrical-, or disease-associated. Common adverse obstetric outcomes following non-obstetric surgery include preterm delivery, preterm labor without preterm delivery, and miscarriage. Fetal well-being is an additional risk-benefit factor to be considered when weighing options before conducting non-obstetric surgeries on pregnant patients. This book will provide physicians with the knowledge and tools to identify common risk factors and successfully apply evidence-based risk reduction. To date, no comprehensive resource is available for non-obstetric surgery during pregnancy. Types of pregnancies, potential complications, proper use of anesthesia, types of risk factors (maternal-, surgical-, obstetrical-, and disease-associated), etc. will be thoroughly explained and depicted within these pages. All chapters will be written by subject matter experts in their fields. All information communicated will be comprised of the most currently available knowledge

This volume is an excellent guide that comprehensively illustrates hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, especially preeclampsia, in both the basic and clinical aspects. Preeclampsia is a pregnancy-specific multi-organ disorder and a leading cause of maternal and neonatal mortality. The pathophysiology of pregnancy-specific disorders was long unknown, but recently many new findings have been reported from the point of view of pathophysiology. Furthermore, this complication of pregnancy, especially preeclampsia, is a potent risk factor for chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, kidney disease, and hypertension. The book is composed of seven parts including genetic background, pathology, pathophysiology, and the latest prediction and treatment of preeclampsia. Specific basic topics such as immunological maladaptation, placental adenosine signaling, and new prediction markers are also expounded by experts. Thus it benefits not only obstetricians, pediatricians, nephrologists, diabetologists, and cardiologists, but also immunologists, endocrinologists, geneticists, pathologists, biologists, and molecular biologists who are interested in the treatment of hypertension in pregnancy.

Dyspareunia, or painful sexual intercourse, associated with menopause has been a taboo subject for decades. During the past year, postmenopausal women have been saturated with print and television advertisements regarding two prescription treatments for painful sex associated with menopause. This book is intended to elucidate in understandable terms the two prescription options currently available for the treatment of dyspareunia, Premarin (R) (conjugated equine estrogens) Vaginal Cream and Osphena (ospemifene) oral tablets. Premarin (R) is a cocktail of hormones isolated from the urine of pregnant horses that was originally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of menopausal symptoms in 1942. Today, Premarin (R) remains the most commonly prescribed hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Osphena is a synthetic non-estrogen drug approved in 2013 that is classified as a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM). Other SERMs approved by the FDA include tamoxifen for breast cancer treatment and prevention, and Evista (R) (raloxifene) for the prevention of postmenopausal osteoporosis and reducing the risk of breast cancer. The FDA is required to educate the public about the benefits and risks of prescription drugs. Unfortunately, these messages are not always clear. We discuss, in understandable terms, the benefits and risks of Premarin (R) Vaginal Cream and Osphena oral tablets as seen in media advertisements, boxed warnings and package inserts. Throughout this book, we discuss the history of these two treatment options for dyspareunia and the future research intended to improve upon hormone replacement therapy for postmenopausal women.

It also discusses minimally invasive operative procedures such as laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy.
Trophoblasts (from Greek trephein: to feed, and blastos: germinator) constitute a particular population of cells forming the outer layer of the blastocyst, providing the embryo with nutrients and giving rise to the outer chorionic sac and the foetal component of the placenta. The trophoblast facilitates embryonic implantation via its inner layer of mononuclear cytotrophoblasts and its outer layer of multinuclear cytoplasm, the syncytiotrophoblasts, forming the early connections between the embryo and the maternal endometrium. The cells of the trophoblast have many qualities, exhibit important functions and have an important role in the development of the placenta; also, they work as a regulator during early growth of the embryo. This volume provides a detailed summary of knowledge regarding the development of the trophoblast during the First Trimester of Pregnancy, the process of placenta apoptosis and the factors causing aging of the placenta. The pathology of trophoblast can manifest itself in several clinical conditions during pregnancy such as intrauterine foetal growth restriction (IUGR), gestational trophoblastic disease and pre-eclampsia. The analysis of the pathogenetic mechanisms involved in these critical conditions are discussed in this book. These aspects are analysed with scientific methodology on the basis of updated studies. "Development of Human Trophoblast" can be considered a reference book for every pathologist, obstetrician and resident.
