Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is caused by an imbalance of hormones in women, often leading to infertility if untreated.
Part of the Clinical Focus series, this book is a practical guide to the diagnosis and management of PCOS for clinicians and trainees.
Divided into 30 chapters, the text begins with an overview of the condition, its epidemiology, and pathophysiology, before going on to discuss diagnosis and ultrasound.
Each of the following sections examines a different phenomenon that may be associated with PCOS, for example, metabolic syndrome, psychological aspects, endocrine disruptors, sleep apnoea, and more.
The final chapters cover medical and surgical management techniques, as well as infertility, ovulation induction, assisted reproductive technology, pregnancy, bariatric surgery, and aesthetics.
The text is enhanced by images and figures to assist learning and also includes a sample exam paper.
