We received a great deal of favorable feedback from Fellows, Residents, new clinicians, and our target audience. However, it was also commonly noted that our textbook was somewhat expensive and cumbersome in terms of both weight and size.
For our second edition, we have made several noteworthy changes in an attempt to improve upon the original textbook. Although we have tried to keep true to our goal of a comprehensive and readable clinical textbook, we have shortened it signi fi cantly to decrease both its price and physical dimensions.
To do this, we asked each author to condense their information and combine chapter contents whenever possible. We also removed some of the more esoteric chapters that, although important for certi fi cation tests, are of less value in day-to-day clinical practice. We are very pleased with the results, and anticipate that you will fi nd the resulting compendium useful.
We hope that it will con fi rm most of your current clinical practices and serve as a useful introduction to the newest approaches to both common and unusual problems faced by our patients.

Gupta and Su-Ynn Chia Introduction The main function of the ovaries, maturation and release of oocytes, is accomplished via the production of several steroidal and nonsteroidal hormones that locally modulate a series of complex events.
Peripherally, these hormones act on various target organs, including the uterus, vagina, fallopian tubes, mammary glands, adipose tissue, bones, kidneys, and liver, leading to the female phenotype. The secretion of the ovarian hormones in turn is precisely regulated by the hypothalamic pituitary axis.
The complex interactions and regulations of the hypothalamic, pituitary, and ovarian hormones are collectively responsible for the regular and predictable ovulatory menstrual cycle and fertility in females.
It is composed of one germ cell that is surrounded by a cluster of endocrine cells, which are organized in two layers separated by a basal membrane. The inner layer surrounding the oocyte is composed of granulosa cells, and the outer layer is composed of thecal cells.
These two cell types provide the basic machinery that is responsible for producing ovarian hormones. These cells are also differentially regulated by the gonadotropins i. These facts led to the M.
The two cell theory describes the sequence of events that occur during ovarian follicular growth and steroidogenesis. According to this theory, LH primarily stimulates thecal cells to produce androstenedione and testosterone, both C19 steroids.Readbag users suggest that JULIE HEFFERNAN is worth reading.
