Book description

Now in its third edition, this is a comprehensive survey of fetal and neonatal brain injury arising from hypoxia, ischemia or other causes. The publication spans a broad range of areas from epidemiology and pathogenesis, through to clinical manifestations and obstetric care, and then on to diagnosis, long-term outcomes, and medico-legal aspects. An important theme running throughout is to highlight scientific and clinical advances that have a role to play in minimising risk, improving clinical care and outcomes. The text describes how placental abnormalities, imaging studies and laboratory measurements can identify the timing and severity of the injury event. Despite these advances, fetal and neonatal brain injury remains a major concern with devastating consequences. It is hoped that this definitive account will provide the clinician not only with a better understanding of the mechanisms involved but also with the best available knowledge necessary to deal with this intractable problem.

Reviews

Review of second edition:‘The material is excellent, well outlined, and well referenced. I would recommend it for all professionals who consult in intensive care nurseries, who are involved in complex obstetrics and who are involved in the medico-legal areas concerning ‘bad babies’ … This textbook should continue to be a landmark in neonatal brain injury for the years ahead.’

Review of second edition‘Overall this book will provide readers with a broad, contemporary overview of pathophysiologic mechanisms that may contribute to fetal and neonatal brain injury and of current clinical practice. Physicians preparing to serve as expert witnesses in legal cases in which the cause of fetal or neonatal brain injury is in contention are likely to find it an informative reference.’

‘This book provides a thorough overview of the principles and practice involved in managing infants who have suffered brain injury during the foetal or neonatal period. It is well written and presented … it is also readable - I enjoyed reading many of the chapters in their entirety. Now in its third edition, the information is right up to date … overall this is a great book … I will be recommending it to my neonatal colleagues and I expect to refer to it regularly myself.’
