An outstanding international team of highly experienced neonatologists and maternal-fetal medicine clinicians have produced this practical, authoritative clinical text, giving clear management advice on all types of fetal and neonatal brain injury. All advances in diagnosis and treatment are discussed, with an emphasis on outcome assessment.
