Fourth edition of Clinical Gynaecology launched
The textbook Clinical Gynaecology, now in its fourth edition, was recently launched at a function at the Stellenbosch Faculty of Health Sciences. The book, published by Juta, was first published in English during 1993 with most of the authors from Stellenbosch University. With the current issue authors from all the medical schools in South Africa have contributed. It is accepted as the leading textbook in its subject area and has become well known throughout South Africa.
The content of the new edition has been completely revised and updated to include the latest research and continues to provide a comprehensive review of the field of gynaecology. The content covers the full spectrum of gynaecological information such as basic sciences, general gynaecology, endocrinology and reproductive medicine, contraception, uro-gynaecology, oncology and is applicable within southern Africa as well as internationally.
The fourth edition includes six new chapters, a DVD that shows live techniques and procedures, and a quick-reference guide summarizing the salient points of each chapter. This book will be an invaluable resource for undergraduates, postgraduate students, and practicing doctors.
