  • For the Seventh Edition of this text, the title has been changed to Kistner's Gynecology and Women's Health (from Kistner's Gynecology) to recognize the broad scope and expanded interest in the field of women's health care. Although over the past 35 years, previous editions of Kistner have appealed largely to students, trainees, and practitioners in gynecology, this new edition should be useful not only for gynecologists but for internists, family practitioners, and women's health specialists who are devoting more of their time and effort to women's medical issues.

In any case, depression is NOT a normal part of aging. The death of a spouse or loved one, moving from work into retirement, or dealing with a chronic illness can leave women and men alike feeling sad or distressed.

Costs are rising from the practice of increasingly technical medicine while patients complain of the decreasing time and attention they are receiving from their medical providers. Further, the burden of chronic disease is growing in an aging population.

  • Member States have anchored and reaffirmed their commitment to gender equality in several normative frameworks. 1 Yet, too many women have not been able to benefit from progress made in meeting the MDGs. Their rights are often not respected and they are left voiceless, excluded from social protection, access to services and economic opportunities. Women and girls continue to face gender-based discrimination and violence as internationally agreed commitments on women’s rights and the empowerment of women are not met in many countries.

  • Thyroid Disease (See also Chap. 335) In pregnancy, the estrogen-induced increase in thyroxine-binding globulin causes an increase in circulating levels of total T 3 and total T4. The normal range of circulating levels of free T4, free T3, and thyroidstimulating hormone (TSH) remain unaltered by pregnancy. The thyroid gland normally enlarges during pregnancy. Maternal hyperthyroidism occurs at a rate of ~2 per 1000 pregnancies and is generally well tolerated by pregnant women. Clinical signs and symptoms should alert the physician to the occurrence of this disease.

For pregnant women with preeclampsia prior to 37 weeks' gestation, delivery reduces the mother's morbidity but exposes the fetus to the risk of premature delivery. The management of preeclampsia is challenging because it requires the clinician to balance the health of both mother and fetus simultaneously and to make management decisions that afford both the best opportunities for infant survival.
