Clinical Infertility and in Vitro Fertilization

Hardback
This manual is a comprehensive guide to the causes and treatment of infertility. Beginning with a section on male and female physiology, the text then discusses various causes of infertility, such as hypothalamic pituitary dysfunction, endometriosis, male factors, the cervical factor and unexplained infertility. The final section explores assisted reproductive technology, including In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), cryopreservation of embryos, intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and fertility preservation in female cancer patients. A final chapter presents ethical, moral and religious issues. Authored by recognised specialists in the USA, Europe and Egypt, this book contains more than 400 clinical and scientific images and illustrations to depict different conditions and surgical techniques.
