The perimenopause is an extremely important time in a woman's life. In a similar but reverse sequence to puberty, it signals a change in ovarian status. Although some women pass through this transition without symptoms or concern, for many women, the perimenopause, which can last several years, is of great concern. Symptoms of estrogen deficiency, menstrual irregular ity, concerns over changes in mood, as well as reproductive concerns lead to anxiety and frustration. Because it is poorly understood, many clinicians are equally frustrated in finding ways to help their patients and question the appropriateness and/or need for treatment. This Serono Symposia USA, Inc., meeting was designed to help address some of these issues from both a basic science and a clinical perspective, and to provide a forum for discussion. The waning of ovarian function can be divided into two events that are dissociated: gametogenic and endocrine failure. Thus, the symposium was divided into three parts to address these two phenomena and to discuss treatment options. An outstanding international group of clinicians and investigators assembled to first address oocyte depletion and possible markers. Next the complex endocrine changes were discussed as well as the physiologic consequences of these changes. This included a discussion of hot flushes, bone and cardiovascular changes, menstrual irregularity, mood disturbances and depression, and anatomical changes in the ovary and breast. The third part of the symposium addressed treatment options, both in terms of symptoms as well as reproductive and fertility concerns.
The only gynecology textbook to combine a comprehensive medical reference and a full color surgical atlas in one beautifully illustrated volume

A Doody's Core Title for 2017!

Williams Gynecology, Third Edition is specifically designed as a practical quick-reference guide for practicing gynecologists and residents, but it will also appeal to clerkship medical students, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Williams Gynecology provides comprehensive coverage of the full spectrum of gynecologic healthcare and disease management, including benign general gynecology; reproductive endocrinology, infertility, and menopause; female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery; and gynecologic oncology. The surgical management sections include Aspects of Gynecologic Surgery and Atlas of Gynecologic Surgery, which covers Surgeries of Benign Gynecologic Conditions, Minimally Invasive Surgery, Surgeries for Female Pelvic Reconstruction, and Surgeries for Gynecologic Malignancies.

Williams Gynecology, Third Edition is beautifully illustrated, with hundreds of original drawings for both the surgical atlas and medical reference portions. Each chapter follows a practical template for a consistent approach to diagnosis and treatment. With its extensive use of treatment algorithms, differential diagnosis boxes, and other elements, this book is also a reliable quick-reference. The third edition has been revised to keep up with new and expanded content on the latest topics, including minimally invasive procedures, benign gynecology, and the subspecialties of urogynecology, gynecologic oncology, and reproductive endocrinology. The authors are internationally known practitioners affiliated with Parkland Memorial Hospital/University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, and the National Institutes for Health.
