Open Access Medical Books


Edited by Michael Kamrava .
258 pages . 

The objective in compiling this book has been to bring more worldwide awareness of 
this important cause of maternal morbidity and mortality. In addition to the sexually 
transmitted diseases, as advanced reproductive technologies have become available 
everywhere, occurrence of ectopic pregnancies has also increased more than before.
With better understanding of the causes of this condition, earlier diagnosis and earlier 
treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, along with employing improved 
reproductive technologies, has led to more non-invasive treatment options and 
improved outcome in the management of these, potentially life-threatening, situations.
This book is dedicated to all our patients from all over the world who have given us 
the impetus for giving them hope for having a family. Also, I would like to thank my 
wife, Soheila, and our children Mitchell and Michelle for their patience, understanding 
and encouragement in taking on this task.
