Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is a common presenting symptom for both gynecologists and family practitioners with complex etiology and challenging differential diagnosis. Many cases of AUB can be managed effectively with hormonal, anti-inflammatory or antifibrinolytic agents. Although surgical management may include hysterectomy, more often one of a variety of less invasive, uterus-sparing procedures provides an effective and satisfactory clinical outcome. Effective management of women with AUB is enhanced by an understanding of the relevant basic sciences and the various mechanisms by which symptoms evolve. This includes clinical evaluation, the application of appropriate laboratory and imaging techniques and the identification of a customized menu of potential therapeutic interventions. Written by a leading practitioner, the approach includes advice on history taking, clinical examination and appropriate therapy. Basic science aspects are limited to what is really relevant to the clinicians. The accompanying DVD includes videos, animations, color images and patient support material to facilitate learning. A spectrum of providers and trainees will find this book to be an invaluable resource, including those from primary care, gynecology and family planning.Table of Contents Glossary1. Introduction2.
