Dewhurst’s Textbook of Obstetrics & Gynaecology 8th Edition PDF
11.6 MB PDF
As I write this, it is almost 40 years since the 1st edition of Dewhurst’ s Postgraduate Obstetrics and Gynaecology was published. There are only a very few books that have stood the test of such longevity and it is a tribute to the concept that Jack Dewhurst had that the book continues now into its 8th edition. Jack ’ s concept was to provide the postgraduate student with an advanced and integrated text for education and it is that philosophy which carries into this, the 8th, edition. No textbook can be totally comprehensive, and any postgraduate student reading this text we hope will be stimulated by the knowledge gained to go on and acquire further, more in – depth and specialist knowledge.
This edition has been redesigned with the hope that the readers will acquire knowledge in as quick and as comprehensive a way as possible. The specialty continues to develop and advance and gynaecology particularly is becoming increasingly a medical specialty and less of a surgical one. This of course is to the benefit of women as therapeutic advances offer them an increasing range of options to improve their quality of life. Obstetrics becomes increasingly focused on differentiating between the normal and the complicated pregnancy, with increasing emphasis on improved treatments for medically compromised mothers and fetuses and subsequently neonates. Again, quality of life is the overriding tenet as the practice of obstetrics and gynaecology improves worldwide.
It is still extremely sad that a quarter of a million women die every year worldwide as a result of childbirth and it is hoped that this volume will make some contribution towards improving these figures.
Many new authors have accepted the challenge to contribute to this edition and, along with those authors who have contributed in the past, I offer my sincere thanks for the time and effort they have put into constructing their chapters. We hope we have done this in a way that the reader will find intellectually challenging and rewarding.
