Medical Disorders in Pregnancy, An Issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinics eBook

Medical Disorders in Pregnancy, An Issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinics eBook We are both privileged to have the opportunity to edit this important issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinics of North America on the topic of Medical Disorders in Pregnancy. Recent medical advances have led women with complex medical problems to be able to choose pregnancy and be managed successfully through an oftenchallenging gestation. However, the early twenty-first century has also seenan unprecedented increase in maternal mortality and morbidity in the United States. This may be due to sicker patients now being able to conceive, or a result of increased rates of obesity, advancing maternal age, and other factors leading to greater morbidity from pregnancy.
We have invited a group of eminent Maternal Fetal Medicine physicians to author articles that are both cutting edge and pertinent to changing obstetric practice.

They not only review timely data on complex conditions that have become prominent in the last several decades but also address more common medical complications of pregnancy. Our issue begins with an important article focusing on maternal mortality in the twenty-first century, an excellent starting point that puts in perspective how challenging the management of pregnancy has become. This is followed by several articles targeting an understanding of diseases that have recently come to the fore. Management of cancer in pregnancy is updated, while another article highlights the opioid epidemic and supervision of dependent women in pregnancy.

We then turn our focus to obesity in pregnancy, yet another problem of epidemic proportions for which all obstetricians must be prepared, reviewing not only general complications but also weight and surgical management of the obese gravida. This is followed by a very timely review of sleep apnea in pregnancy, a problem that has risen in parallel with the obesity rate. Sleep apnea is frequently overlooked, so we are fortunate to include this appraisal of diagnosis and treatment during pregnances
