Major advances have recently been made in our understanding of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS). These include improving classification, recognizing primary and secondary risk factors, manipulating and monitoring ovarian stimulation, handling risky situations, and elucidating the underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms of the syndrome. As such, all health care professionals working in reproductive medicine should be acquainted with the theoretical and practical aspects of how to deal with this syndrome, both from a prophylactic point of view and once it has developed.

Focusing on the clinically relevant aspects of the syndrome, Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome is well-illustrated with appropriate diagrams showing biologic mechanisms, procedural algorithms, sonographs and radiological images. At the end of each chapter, frequently asked questions with appropriate answers help expand and elaborate difficult practice problems.
