Principles and Practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology for Postgraduates is a comprehensive multicontributor book compiled by FOGSI members and examiners, and updated by newly passed postgraduates and young lecturers. It provides an in-depth, well-researched write-up on all the important clinical topics related to Obstetrics and Gynecology. The contributors have thoroughly researched and prepared the chapters in light of their own clinical experiences. The fourth edition has also introduced the concept of auditing maternal morbidity and mortality to lay a firm foundation of clinical research and promote a logical approach instead of blindly following the traditional and irrational practices. Not applicable only to the postgraduate students, this textbook would serve as a referral guide for the busy practitioners as well.
