Abstract
This book will help the reader to recognize, diagnose, and efficiently treat most of the acute abdominal disorders that may be encountered in the pregnant patient, whether associated with or incidental to the pregnancy. A wide range of conditions are addressed, including some which are very rare as well as those more frequently seen, such as acute appendicitis and acute cholecystitis. The principles underlying diagnosis and therapy are clearly explained. Particular features in the clinical presentation of pregnant patients are highlighted, and specific diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms and protocols, described. Attention is drawn to the diagnostic difficulties that may arise from atypical presentations in these patients and to restrictions on the use of certain diagnostic imaging studies. The text is complemented by more than 200 figures relevant to clinical practice. Acute Abdomen During Pregnancy is designed to meet the needs of both the gynecologist and the general or abdominal surgeon, who together form the multidisciplinary team mandatory for effective treatment that will safeguard mother and baby.

Abstract
La présente brochure explique les choix offerts aux femmes qui ont eu un bébé par césarienne (parfois appelée naissance par césarienne ou opération césarienne). Les femmes qui ont eu une césarienne ont souvent un accouchement vaginal à leur prochaine grossesse. On peut alors parler d’épreuve du travail après césarienne ou d’accouchement vaginal après césarienne (AVAC). La présente brochure explique si vous pouvez planifier un AVAC et traite de ce qui favorise la sécurité et la réussite d’un AVAC, ainsi que des avantages et risques de l’AVAC.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1847, “Options for Birth after Cesarean”. This pamphlet explains the options available to women who have had a baby by cesarean birth (sometimes called “cesarean delivery”, “c-section” or “CS”). Women who have had a cesarean often give birth vaginally in their next pregnancy. This may be referred to as Trial of Labour after Cesarean (TOLAC) or Vaginal Birth after Cesarean (VBAC). When you can plan for a VBAC, what makes a VBAC safe and successful, as well as the benefits and risks of VBAC, are listed.

Abstract
Complex abdominal wall hernias and complex abdominal wall defects, including stomas or the complications associated with any of the above, are common and challenging for surgeons. The lack of high quality evidence leaves surgeons without clear guidance regarding the selection of technique or material to be used when treating these serious problem. Surgery of Complex Abdominal Wall Defects has been written to provide this guidance. It covers the surgical anatomy of the abdominal wall, pathology of abdominal wall defects, such as hernias, enterocutaneous or entero-atmospheric fistulae, indications for, and surgical techniques used to, reconstruct the abdominal wall. In addition, through a number of illustrations, the placement of mesh in the abdominal wall reconstruction, as well as manipulations of patient's tissue including lateral compartment release techniques and other tissue transfer techniques are described in detail. The text also covers reconstruction of complex contaminated abdominal wall defects in patients with complex enteric fistulae; ostomies, defects created after the excision of previously placed infected prosthetic mesh, and defects associated with acute tissue loss after severe trauma or necrosis of abdominal wall such as necrotizing soft tissue infections. Complex abdominal wall defects in pediatric population and long-term outcomes and durability of these repairs are also addressed. Surgery of Complex Abdominal Wall Defects is written by experts in their respective areas from around the world. It will serve as a guide for current practice for surgeons, including general, trauma, acute care, plastic and reconstructive surgeons.
