The last decade has witnessed striking progress in assisted reproductive technology (ART) and over the past few years the success rate of ART has increased significantly due to the introduction of novcl technologies and improved embryo culture systems. Along with this rapid pace of development comes the need for clinicians to keep abreast.
This book brings fresh insights into the pathophysiology of human reproduction, providing up-to-date and practical information on the clinical and laboratory management of subfertility. Particular emphasis is placed on the clinical appraisal of the current and potential strategies to improve the management of the subfertile couple, as well as the various therapeutic options available for the management of subfertility.
The preparation of this book was driven by a desire to provide a hands-on, practical guide to assisted reproduction that would be accessible to those practising in the field of Assisted Reproduction, those working on the establishment and day-to-day running of an IVF clinic, and those with a more general interest in assisted reproduction. The contributing authors include internationally renowned clinicians and scientists actively involved in the field of reproductive medicine and those who are acknowledged in their own fields.
We are most grateful to all who have made the publication of this book possible.
