About this Book

Pregnancy is a very exciting time, but can be challenging to both the pregnant patient and the caring physician when complicated by a disorder, considering the impact on the health of both the mother and the fetus. This book provides a comprehensive and up-to- date review of liver disorders during pregnancy that will benefit both health care providers and researchers. Maternal Liver Disease represents a single source that contains detailed knowledge of clinical manifestations of maternal liver disorders, approach to diagnosis and management, clinical outcomes, as well as a detailed description of the latest scientific discoveries and research findings on pathogenesis of liver disease in pregnancy. Some of these disorders, until recently, have been considered mysterious and many of the recommendations, based on recent discoveries, can be lifesaving to the pregnant woman and her fetus. Maternal Liver Disease provides a novel contribution to the field through its comprehensive clinical and scientific focused approach.
