Q & A RECURRENT PREGENANCY LOSS (CAUSES AND TREATMENT)
About the Book
The incidence of recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is on rise worldwide. A Swedish study has shown an increase of 54% over 10 years of time. The causes of RPL are diverse including environmental factors, lifestyle alterations, and limited awareness. RPL is a distressing situation for both the couple and the attending physician. Such unfortunate couples need special care along with sympathy, encouragement and hope. In depth knowledge and experience are needed to handle such situations.
It has been observed that the couple with RPL undergoes many irrelevant investigations. Many times, the investigations are repetitive, as the women change the physicians due to anxiety to achieve one successful pregnancy and this may end up in huge financial burden with little benefit. The book 'Recurrent Pregnancy Loss' has attempted to provide solutions to the problems associated with RPL. The book has also detailed the treatment for various causes of RPL in the form of question & answers, and the controversial areas are adequately addressed with suitable literature evidence.
Hope this book may serve as a guide to the practicing obstetricians and postgraduate students.
