Congenital and Perinatal Infections
by Jennifer S. Read
CONGENITAL AND PERINATAL INFECTIONS provides a concise and clinically-oriented primer on the congenital and perinatal infections likely to present in clinical practice. Written with the busy clinician in mind, it combines easy accessibility with state-of-the-art information on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of congenital and perinatal infections. Eschewing the notion that congenital and perinatal infections only encompass agents from the TORCH group of pathogens, this volume offers comprehensive information on the spectrum of viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections that can manifest in mother or child. Combined with its brevity and emphasis on clinical management, CONGENITAL AND PERINATAL INFECTIONS is a definitive new guide to understanding this challenging group of infections.
Birth Trauma and Perinatal Brain Damage
by Vasily Vasilievich Vlasyuk
This book focuses on traumatic birth injuries, predominantly of the skull and brain, as well as hemorrhagic and ischemic disorders of cerebral circulation in fetuses and newborns, providing information on each condition’s classification, incidence, etiology and pathogenesis, pathomorphology, clinic, diagnostics, prognosis, and complications. It discusses the configuration (molding) of the head, venous congestion, displacements of cranial bones, ruptures of the cerebellar tentorium during labor, and the compression of the skull and brain damage caused by obstetric operations and asynclitic insertion of the head, while also describing the importance of the periosteal stagnation of the skull to assess the delivery and explanation of tentorium tears. Intracranial hemorrhages are considered in detail, taking into account the role of the traumatic factor in their occurrence and hypoxic-ischemic brain lesions (periventricular leukomalacia, selective neuronal necrosis, multicystic encephalomalacia, etc.). Lastly, it offers the world’s first explanation of why tentorium tears occur most frequently in the left half, providing an original classification of damaged tentoria, subarachnoid and intraventricular hemorrhages, and the degree of configuration of the head in childbirth. Given the depth and breadth of its coverage, the book offers an essential resource for neonatologists, obstetricians-gynecologists, perinatologists, pediatric neurologists, pathologists, pediatricians, forensic experts and neuroimaging professionals.
