Overview for Jaypee’s Video Atlas of Assisted Reproductive Technologies and Clinical Embryology
The Jaypee’s Video Atlas of Assisted Reproductive Technologies and Clinical Embryology is a novel concept in the field of reproductive medicine. The author has made an attempt to provide an illustrative description of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) and clinical embryology, which is expected to kindle several young minds. Efforts have been made to present to the readers live, good quality and high definition audiovisuals with rollover text on the basic procedures and laboratory protocols so that the beginners can closely associate with the techniques and easily assimilate them. The videos have been designed to present a comprehensive overview of the assisted reproductive technologies beginning from the basic workup of an infertility patient including infertility related endoscopy, controlled ovarian hyperstimulation and optimal use of ultrasound. An exemplified demonstration has been provided of the basic laboratory techniques and a detailed insight into andrology, embryology and cryobiology has been furnished. The videos also cover in totality the related clinical aspects including ovum pickup, embryo transfer and the complications of IVF. This format also allows the person to replay sections until the concepts are clear. While the video atlas would be useful to the ART practitioners and clinicians, it would also be of immense help to beginners who are keen to take up reproductive medicine and embryology. A compendium has been designed as an adjunct to the videos in an easy-to-read format and includes 40 chapters covering all essential issues pertaining to IVF. Almost all the chapters have been linked to the videos for easy assimilation of the subject.
