Menstrual dysfunction in pediatric and adolescent gynecology practice: Heavy Menstrual Bleeding

PublisherCambridge University Press
Publication date2018

Pediatric and adolescent gynecology (PAG) is recognized as a specialist area and clinicians working in PAG need specific expertise. A wide spectrum of conditions needs to be addressed, ranging from simple disorders which respond to basic treatment to complex congenital anomalies with a genetic origin and life-long health consequences. Investigations must be appropriate and treatment should reduce symptoms and distress whilst optimizing gynecological and reproductive potential. Centered upon a series of common clinical presentations, this book includes stepwise guidance on the initial investigations, management, and treatment options. Guidance is supported by the most up-to-date evidence-base, written by clinicians with dedicated clinical and research experience in PAG. New techniques - such as laparoscopic surgery - are included and the importance of the psychological assessment of children with specific PAG disorders is highlighted. The book also includes an authoritative chapter on safeguarding - recognizing the unique opportunity for gynecologists in child protection.
