Dr. Lockwood Audio Issue: January 2012

It's almost time for your next issue of Contemporary OB/GYN.

Editor-in-Chief Dr. Charles J. Lockwood gives you a preview of the upcoming issue: features and practice pearls from ob/gyn key opinion leaders, news and analysis, Legally Speaking, and more.

Moderator: We're here with Editor in Chief Dr. Charles J. Lockwood, Dean of the College of Medicine and Vice President for Health Sciences at The Ohio State University.

Dr. Lockwood, what can you tell us about the upcoming issue of Contemporary OB/GYN?

Dr. Lockwood: Well, Patricia, as usual, the January issue of Contemporary OB/GYN is packed from cover to cover with information you can use in day-to-day practice. Here are highlights of our must-read articles and departments:

Postpartum contraception is essential for any new mother who wants to space pregnancy or limit her family’s size. But the options can be confusing to both ob/gyn and patient. In our cover story, “Postpartum Contraception: Ways to Avoid VTEs,” Dr. Paul D. Blumenthal, professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Stanford University School of Medicine, examines the recommendations from CDC and WHO and the latest evidence on contraceptives that are compatible with breastfeeding and minimize risk of venous thromboembolism.

Next we have a feature titled “Urogynecology for the Generalist: Keys to Success With Midurethral Slings.” All midurethral slings are not created equal, nor are the patients with stress urinary incontinence who are candidates for surgery. In this article, Dr. Mary T. McLennan, director of the Division of Urogynecology at St. Louis University School of Medicine, looks at overall success and complication rates with Burch, retropubic, and transobturator tape procedures and identifies characteristics that are key to selecting the right sling for your patient.

Join David A. Miller, MD, professor of clinical obstetrics, gynecology, and pediatrics at USC’s Keck School of Medicine and the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for the second installment in our bi-monthly series on FHR interpretation, Fetal Monitoring Mythbusters. This time, he separates fact from fiction about atypical variable deceleration.

Making its debut this month is “Snapshots on High-Risk Pregnancy,” a bimonthly series of summaries of individual chapters from the fifth edition of the Queenan/Hobbins/Spong classic, Protocols for High-Risk Pregnancies. Only in Contemporary OB/GYN will you get key points from Protocol 27: Obesity by Patrick Catalano, MD, of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, which you can read in 30 seconds, as well as free access to the full text of the book chapter.

Moderator: Thank you, Dr. Lockwood.
