For many women in developing countries, such as sub-Saharan Africa, south and south-east Asia, and central and south America, there is a high risk of cervical cancer, but a lack of effective programmes to detect and treat such a problem. This introductory manual is intended to simply the learning of colposcopy (a diagnostic and evaluation method for cervical intraepithelia neoplasia, or cervical cancer).

Cytological screening for the identification of intraepithelial neoplasia of the cervix as a precursor lesion for cervical cancer has been well established as an effective means for decreasing the incidence of invasive carcinoma. Despite these screening efforts, carcinoma of the cervix remains one of the more common malignancies in women and it is the leading cause of cancer death in many countries in the western hemisphere. It is estimated that in 1986 there will still be 14,000 new cases of invasive cancer, with 6,800 deaths in the United States alone. Unfortunately, many of these patients present with advanced disease, posing difficult management problems for the clinician responsible for their care. The treatment of early stage invasive carcinoma of the cervix (lesions confined to the cervix and vagina) remains either radical surgery, radical radiation therapy or a combination thereof This approach is extraordinarily effective in the vast majority of patients. However, there remains a subset of patients with early stage disease that are at high risk for recurrence. Dr Kjorstad (Chapter 2) has identified adenocarcinomas and adenosqua mous carcinomas as having a particularly poor prognosis. In addition, patients with more than three positive lymph nodes or with involvement of lymph nodes outside of the pelvis have a very poor prognosis. He has iden tified the CEA as a potentially predictive marker for these patients with poor prognosis, especially in patients with adenocarcinomas.

The first hospital-affiliated surgical unit designed specifically for ambulatory surgery in the state of California began functioning as part of Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in 1973. As this text is readied for publication, the unit is in its tenth year of operation. More than 20,000 patients have undergone surgery there. The enthusiasm generated by ~\ir experience in Santa Barbara, along with the widespread, growing interest in ambulatory surgery, prompted us to undertake this volume. The first three chapters cover principles and administrative aspects, an esthesiology, and nursing in the ambulatory surgical center. Subsequent chap ters, the major portion of the text, provide detailed, meticulously illustrated descriptions of surgical procedures as they are done in the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Outpatient Surgical Center by the surgeons who work there. They reflect current practice and emphasize the techniques found most reliable by the surgeons who use them in the outpatient setting. This manual includes many of the operations most commonly performed in our facility and emphasizes the unique aspects of surgery and patient care in outpatient practice. The text is concise, practical, and based on our collective experience. The illustrations are, for the most part, drawn from the surgeon's perspective and faithfully render the actual appearance of the operative field during surgery. Supplementary cross-sectional and conceptual drawings are included to orient the reader.

This text is written for the obstetrician, gynecologist, pathologist, and for residents training in these disciplines. It is a multi-authored book and the editor is aware of the problems this can create, but the expansion of information in the field of gynecologic pathology renders single au thorship obsolete. The format is largely traditional but the contents in clude topics that have not appeared in past texts. Clear cell adenocarcinoma of the vagina and vaginal and cervical adenoses are discussed in detail in a separate chapter. A chapter on embryology and congenital anomalies is writ ten by an embryologist and the advantage of its inclusion is self evident. Ovarian neoplasms in childhood and ado lescence are fortunately rare occurrences, but information concerning them is generally not readily available in exist ing texts. It is of sufficient importance to deserve a separate chapter. Amniotic fluid analysis for fetal viability is now commonly used and for this reason a detailed discussion of this subject is presented. A chapter is included on gross description and prepara tion of gynecologic specimens. It contains the input and review of several directors of gynecologic-pathology labo ratories.

Most women who die from cervical cancer, particularly in developing countries, are in the prime of their life. They may be raising children, caring for their family, and contributing to the social and economic life of their town or village. Their death is both a personal tragedy, and a sad and unnecessary loss to their family and their community. Unnecessary, because there is compelling evidence, as this Guide makes clear, that cervical cancer is one of the most preventable and treatable forms of cancer, as long as it is detected early and managed effectively. Unfortunately, the majority of women in developing countries still do not have access to cervical cancer prevention programmes. The consequence is that, often, cervical cancer is not detected until it is too late to be cured. An urgent effort is required if this situation is to be corrected. This Guide is intended to help those responsible for providing services aimed at reducing the burden posed by cervical cancer for women, communities and health systems. It focuses on the knowledge and skills needed by health care providers, at different levels of care.

Gynecological oncology surgery has shown substantial progress in recent years. Most of the advances come from gynecologists with full time commitments to gynecological oncology. Jt is important for the general obstetrician-gynecologist to be informed about the possibilities offered by modern gyneco logical oncology. Thus he or she may acquire new techniques which can be used in general gynecological practice. On the other hand it is essential to know what his or her colleagues, specialised in gynecological oncology can offer in oncology centres. The chapters in this book are based on a post-graduate course organised by the Boerhaave Committee for post-graduate medical education of the medical faculty of the University of Leiden, in the Netherlands. In view of the considerable interest shown by many highly qualified specialists we are extremely grateful to our contributors who were prepared to lucidly present their knowledge and expertise within the covers of the present book. One of the conclusion of this book must be that the special surgical skills needed for adequate treatment of gynecological cancer cannot be developed within general residency programs. Thus European gynecologists should examine whether and to what extent additional training as usual in the U.S.A. is necessary. The editors want to thank the Royal College of Obstericians and Gynecologists for their kind permission to reproduce the contribution of J.A. Jordan (chapter 7 from "pre-clinical neoplasia of the cervix" (London, 1982). A.P.M. Heintz, M.D. C.Th.G~i66ith~,M.D.
