Review

From the reviews:

"This book provides a comprehensive overview of all aspects related to perineal and anal sphincter trauma … . The book represents a valuable resource for those who are involved in the management of perineal and anal sphincter trauma to further their knowledge and understanding of this emerging field and advance their skills in patient care. … it is suitable for obstetricians, midwifes, urogynaecologists and colorectal surgeons. It should be in the library of every hospital where obstetric care is provided." (Sharif I. M. F. Ismail, International Urogynecology Journal, Vol. 20, 2009)

From the Back Cover

Perineal and Anal Sphincter Trauma is a comprehensive text that focuses on the maternal morbidity associated with childbirth. In recognition of the longstanding global diversity in obstetric practice and the management of its sequelae, the authors have compiled the ultimate evidence-based book that includes the diagnosis, pathophysiology, management and prevention of obstetric trauma. Previous surveys have indicated that the majority of doctors and midwives have suboptimal training in anatomy and repair of perineal and anal sphincter trauma. This book addresses these deficiencies by providing a step-by- step approach in the understanding of perineal anatomy and provides tips on how to make an accurate diagnosis and classifiy perineal trauma. The dilemmas surrounding repair techniques and management of subsequent pregnancies are fully debated and preventative strategies are highlighted. Chapters on female genital mutilation, the management of faecal incontinence and medicolegal issues are also included.

This book is essential reading for anyone involved in obstetric care such as obstetricians, midwives, and family practitioners but will also be of interest to colorectal surgeons, gastroenterologists, physiotherapists, continence advisors, and lawyers.
