R891 Discovery Miles 8 910 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Although there are far more opportunities for LGBTQ people to become parents than there were before the 1990s, attention to the reproductive challenges LGBTQ families face has not kept pace. Reproductive Losses considers LGBTQ people's experiences with miscarriage, stillbirth, failed adoptions, infertility, and sterility. Drawing on Craven's training as a feminist anthropologist and her experiences as a queer parent who has experienced loss, Reproductive Losses includes detailed stories drawn from over fifty interviews with LGBTQ people (including those who carried pregnancies, non-gestational and adoptive parents, and families from a broad range of racial/ethnic, socio-economic, and religious backgrounds) to consider how they experience loss, grief, and mourning. The book includes productive suggestions and personal narratives of resiliency, commemorative strategies, and communal support, while also acknowledging the adversity many LGBTQ people face as they attempt to form families and the heteronormativity of support resources for those who have experienced reproductive loss. This is essential reading for scholars and professionals interested in LGBTQ health and family, and for individuals in LGBTQ communities who have experienced loss and those who support them.

This book provides a comprehensive description of the screening and clinical applications of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) and offers straightforward, clear guidance on use of the technique. Informative clinical cases are presented to illustrate how to take advantage of DBT in clinical practice. The importance of DBT as a diagnostic tool for both screening and diagnosis is increasing rapidly. DBT improves upon mammography by depicting breast tissue on a video clip made of cross-sectional images reconstructed in correspondence with their mammographic planes of acquisition. DBT results in markedly reduced summation of overlapping breast tissue and offers the potential to improve mammographic breast cancer surveillance and diagnosis. This book will be an excellent practical teaching guide for beginners and a useful reference for more experienced radiologists.

How does one learn to stimulate ovulation? Often by oneself, when there is no opportunity to benefit from a mentor's experience. But options abound regarding the evaluation strategy, protocol design, gonadotropin preparations, posology, treatment duration, and when and how to trigger ovulation. Proper, safe stimulation requires critical anticipation of ovarian reactions. There seems to be little evidence-based consensus in the field of ovarian stimulation. Though they all face the same situation, there seem to be nearly as many procedures as there are clinicians in the field; as a result, approaches may vary within a given fertility center or even in the same team. Even though efforts have been made to arrive at a general consensus, the basic guidelines are often reinterpreted according to individual inclinations; hence the need to turn to experience-based decisions. This book is based on the author's experience gathered over forty years and more than 30,000 cycles of classical and IVF ovulation stimulations, particularly the thousand most recent cycles that resulted in a clinical pregnancy. It is not intended as a "perfect solution", as other approaches certainly remain valid. Rather, the book presents the author's own analysis and insights gained from managing thousands of stimulation cycles.

This volume presents the latest advances and the current status of our understanding regarding ovarian cancer, addressing both the basic and clinical aspects of the disease. In terms of basic medicine, the WHO Classification of Tumors of Female Reproductive Organs was revised in 2014, and that version addresses several new concepts and histopathological classifications not previously included. One of the most revolutionary breakthroughs concerns the genesis of epithelial ovarian tumors, shifting the focus from the ovarian surface epithelium to serous tubal intraepithelial carcinomas. Clinically, the mortality rate of epithelial ovarian cancer has gradually increased over the past few decades, making it essential to pursue multidisciplinary treatment and apply novel techniques such as neoadjuvant chemotherapy in daily clinical practice. The primary clinical task is the effective treatment of recurrent ovarian cancer with early palliative medicine. Fertility-sparing surgery may also be pursued depending on histologic subtypes, stage, extent of disease, and preexisting ovarian reserve with the concept of oncofertility. On the basis of the considerations described above, each expert author elucidates the science of ovarian cancer in detail, thus providing a collection that will benefit young medical oncologists and seasoned gynecologists and obstetricians alike.

Ilana Loewy
R865 R752 Discovery Miles 7 520 Save R113 (13%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

In the 1960s, thanks to the development of prenatal diagnosis, medicine found a new object of study: the living fetus. At first, prenatal testing was proposed only to women at a high risk of giving birth to an impaired child. But in the following decades, such testing has become routine. In Imperfect Pregnancies, Ilana Lowy argues that the generalization of prenatal diagnosis has radically changed the experience of pregnancy for tens of millions of women worldwide. Although most women are reassured that their future child is developing well, others face a stressful period of waiting for results, uncertain prognosis, and difficult decisions. Lowy follows the rise of biomedical technologies that made prenatal diagnosis possible and investigates the institutional, sociocultural, economic, legal, and political consequences of their widespread diffusion. Because prenatal diagnosis is linked to the contentious issue of selective termination of pregnancy for a fetal anomaly, debates on this topic have largely centered on the rejection of human imperfection and the notion that we are now perched on a slippery slope that will lead to new eugenics. Imperfect Pregnancies tells a more complicated story, emphasizing that there is no single standardized way to scrutinize the fetus, but there are a great number of historically conditioned and situated approaches. This book will interest students, scholars, health professionals, administrators, and activists interested in issues surrounding new medical technologies, screening, risk management, pregnancy, disability, and the history and social politics of women's bodies.

Within forty-eight hours after birth, the heel of every baby in the United States has been pricked and the blood sent for compulsory screening to detect or rule out a large number of disorders. Newborn screening is expanding rapidly, fueled by the prospect of saving lives. Yet many lives are also changed by it in ways not yet recognized. Testing Baby is the first book to draw on parents' experiences with newborn screening in order to examine its far-reaching sociological consequences. Rachel Grob's cautionary tale also explores the powerful ways that parents' narratives have shaped this emotionally charged policy arena. Newborn screening occurs almost always without parents' consent and often without their knowledge or understanding, yet it has the power to alter such things as family dynamics at the household level, the context of parenting, the way we manage disease identity, and how parents' interests are understood and solicited in policy debates.
