Improvements in the detection of fetal and neonatal
ain injuries, advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology, cellular and molecular bases of encephalopathy, and new treatment options have all combined to produce significant changes in the management of neonatal
ain disorders in the past few years. This new edition of Fetal and Neonatal Brain Injury
ings the reader fully up to date with all advances in clinical management and outcome assessment. Updated material includes inflammation focusing in particular on chorioamnionitis and fetal
ain injury; genetic
ain injury; and expanded sections on cholestasis, diabetes, and thyroid disease. An updated, highly illustrated chapter on structural and functional imaging of the fetal and neonatal
ain is also included. An outstanding international team of highly experienced neonatologists and maternal-fetal medicine clinicians have produced a practical, authoritative clinical text that gives clear management advice to all clinicians involved in the treatment of these patients.

Short Description
Authoritative, practical clinical text giving clear management advice on diagnosis, treatment and outcomes of all fetal and neonatal
ain injuries.
