Pr Mauvais-Jarvis . La Lettre du Gynécologue

Saluons ce magnifique ouvrage de référence en colposcopie dont la qualité de présentation et la magnifique iconographie justifient qu’il soit en bonne place dans toutes les bibliothèques intéressées par la pathologie du col utérin.

Dr Vincent Loffredo. Gyn Obs

Le nombre et la qualité des photographies en couleurs et des diagrammes font de ce livre le plus richement illustré des ouvrages parus jusqu’ici sur le sujet. Le lecteur est frappé par le caractère pratique de ce livre, par la concision et la clarté du texte, ainsi que par le souci constant d'un parallèle histo-colposcopique.

« Les conseils aux colposcopistes débutants » qui tiennent lieu de conclusion, mériteraient d’être médités par les colposcopistes de tous niveaux. Le dernier conseil traduit bien la pensée de l’auteur : « La colposcopie s’apprend au laboratoire d’anatomie pathologique, avec un microscope ».

José E. Torres, The Colposcopist, American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology.

This edition of Practical Colposcopy uses a great number of diagrams and the most beautiful colpophotographs. I have seen in any publication to illustrate the various points the author wants to make...

The text is divided into sections that follow a natural sequence beginning with a short history of colposcopy from its inception to the present. This section ends with a short paragraph in witch Dr Cartier defines his concept of the role of the colposcopist in the late 1980’s.This paragraph should be read by all of us who teach colposcopy...

This book belongs to the library of anyone who aspires to be a colposcopist.

Albert Singer, British Journalof Obstetrics and Gynaecology

There can be very few books that are classed as classic in that they make a significant contribution to the subject that they cover. This text is a classic because any colposcopist practising his art must at sometime read it and should be conversant with many of its contents...

The photographs are certainly the most beautiful that have ever been produced on the cervix.

No matter how experienced the colposcopist, the book holds many delights for him... If it were possible this atlas would be made compulsory reading for ail of us who take a cervical smear from the cervix be they, paramedical staff, nurses, midwives, or doctors. It is a bock that can be recommended. Il is indeed a classic.

This edition of René Cartier’s Practical Colposcopy is not only an outstanding introduction for the colposcopic diagnosis, but also a splendid picture book, in the best meaning of the term. This book provides the beginner with an exceptional introduction and the quality and choice of the pictures will fill the experienced colposcopist with wonder.

Burton A. K rumholz, MD, The Colposcopist

Very few medical texts establish themselves as classics when first published, but such was the case with the 1977 first edition of this book. Now, after two revisions, the latest in 1993, Dr. René Cartier with his daughter, Isabelle, have extended the scope of their work by the inclusion of much new material, illustrations and case studies. These revisions reinforce suggestions made in earlier reviews that this atlas should be made compulsory reading for every student of cervical disease.

The updates in this text include a new section on “Glandular Dysplasias”, expanded discussion of loop electrosurgical excision, which was pioneered by Dr. Cartier, and discussion of the association of HPV to the development of cervical neoplasia. The book is extensively illustrated by some of the finest colpophotographs that can be found in any text.

The practical hints and solutions that are scattered throughout the text are useful to all of us, not just the beginner.

This book should be on the shelf of every colposcopist.
