"The definitive reference work on prenatal diagnosis, Genetic Disorders and the Fetus is now available in a completely revised and updated fifth edition reflecting the most current advances in research, technology, and clinical care. Written by an international team of experts, the volume provides an in-depth critical analysis and synthesis of the latest work in prenatal diagnosis of genetic disorders and fetal malformations. This volume represents a substantial repository of facts and emphasizes important advances in the prenatal detection and screening for cystic fibrosis, neural tube defects, chromosomal abnormalities, hemoglobinopathies, and fragile X syndrome. Technical advances in fetal blood sampling, abortion, and fetal therapy are highlighted, and an enormous personal experience with chorionic villus sampling provides valuable lessons and guidance."--JHU Press
