Master the effective evaluation, analysis and management of placental-fetal growth restriction (PFGR), developing strategies to reduce the risk of perinatal mortality and morbidity in patients worldwide. Extensively researched by international experts, this manual provides practitioners with a detailed, hands-on approach to the practical 'pearls' for direct patient management. This authoritative volume advises on matters such as the correct evaluation and management of high-risk patients in danger of PFGR through to delivery. Extensive and wide-ranging, this book is an invaluable companion to the developing research interest and clinical applications in PFGR, including developmental outcomes in early childhood. Featuring a critical evaluation of a variety of abnormal conditions, such as fetal hypoxia and extreme prematurity, which are clearly displayed through extensive illustrations. This essential toolkit ensures that practitioners at all levels can effectively limit adverse outcome and reach the correct diagnosis.

• Reflects the current research interest and clinical applications in placental-fetal growth restriction (PFGR), worldwide
• Covers the effect of PFGR in the fetus and through to birth and to early childhood
• Authored by an international team of authors with extensive expertise on the topic
• Includes copious illustrations to aid understanding
