50 Studies Every Obstetrician-Gynecologist Should Know presents key studies that have shaped the practice of obstetrics and gynecology. Selected using a rigorous methodology, the studies cover topics including hypertension in pregnancy, infectious diseases of pregnancy, family planning, urogynecology, and more. For each study, a concise summary is presented with an emphasis on the results and limitations of the study, and its implications for practice. An illustrative clinical case concludes each review, followed by brief information on other relevant studies. This book is a must-read for obstetrician-gynecologists, internists, family practitioners, nurse practitioners, and midwives, as well as anyone who wants to learn more about the data behind clinical practice.
