An invaluable resource to all physicians treating infertile couples. The text emphasises the practice of infertility in the office setting, reflecting the current trend away from the hospital into the outpatient environment, with the most current and advanced therapies available discussed by recognised experts in the field. The first half of the book is devoted to the evaluation and work-up of the infertile couple, including evaluation of the infertility factors, and the roles of ultrasound, endometrium saline sonography, falloposcopy and diagnostic laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. The second half of the book presents the treatment and operative procedures, including ovulation induction, IUI, tubal cannulation, treatment of cervical stenosis, the use of office laparoscopy and therapeutic hysteroscopy, male treatment as support for IVF, vas reversals, and testicular biopsy, as well as routine IVF, intratubal gamete transfer, and micromanipulation. With 200 illustrations, this book is a must for all infertility specialists, obstetrician-gynaecoloists, fellows, and residents.
