"...the text appears to be mostly evidence-based and there are not many textbooks of this size and quality available in the field of Maternal-Fetal Medicine." By Ganesh Acharya , Feb 2015
"This is the seventh edition of the definitive textbook for high-risk obstetrics. It serves as a comprehensive resource for physicians caring for complicated obstetric patients, highlighting the most commonly encountered anomalies and providing guidelines for obstetric management and neonatal management.
All levels of learners will appreciate this book. Residents, general obstetricians, and, of course, perinatologists will benefit. The authors are the best in the field.
Concepts familiar to most obstetric providers, such as preterm labor and premature rupture of membranes, are outlined in detail form basic physiology and pathology to current management strategies. The book also serves as a thorough yet easy-to-read source of information on less familiar topics, such as invasive fetal therapy. Additionally, as advances in ultrasound technology make fetal imaging an important component of prenatal diagnosis, obstetricians will find the sections on fetal imaging particularly handy as a reference in the office setting.
The newest feature is the online video content that accompanies the fetal imaging section. The book itself is relatively unchanged from previous version, but the material has been updated to reflect current practice. Flow charts simplify the material and references are well done. Most importantly, this book reflects the most recent scientific evidence guiding modern obstetric practice.
Creay and Resnik continues to be the gold standard for high-risk obstetrics. Physicians can trust that the content is based on review of the current medical literature by renowned clinicians in the field of maternal-fetal medicine. The reliability of the information, couples with its presentation in a readable, user-friendly format, make it the gold standard in its class and a must-have for all obstetric providers." - Anthony Shanks, MD (Indiana University School of Medicine)
