This user-friendly, practical guide provides an excellent introduction to good clinical practice in the investigation and treatment of infertility, using the very latest assisted reproductive technologies. There are chapters on clinical assessment of the male and the female, followed by detailed chapters on the full range of clinical procedures that can be put in place to help overcome infertility. In addition, other chapters deal with IVF, GIFT and ZIFT and clinical aspects of PGD, which has an increasingly important role these days. Guidance is given on how to set up and run a successful IVF unit based on the experience of the authors, and for the benefit of those new to the field or responsible for developing an IVF service for their patients. With its clinical focus, this will undoubtedly become an essential introduction to assisted reproduction for doctors, embryologists, and nurses.
