Defined as the period of a woman's life in late menopause and after, the geripause has generally been understudied and undertreated. The worldwide increase in longevity calls for physicians to be knowledgeable about the diagnosis and therapies for this phase of a woman's life. The Geripause: Medical Management During the Late Menopause describes the basic endocrinological, medical, surgical, and psychological aspects of the geripause.The book focuses on the approach to the older patient and determining the appropriate diagnosis and treatment of the geripausal woman. Particular attention is paid to normal changes seen with aging, the manifestation of diseases in the elderly, optimizing functional status, the appropriate use of pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic therapies, surgery in the elderly, whether standards of quality of life (QOL) change for older patients, and the context within which diagnostic and therapeutic strategies are employed.C o-authors Bernard Eskin and Bruce Troen, a reproductive endocrinologist-gynecologist and a geriatrician-gerontologist have written their own specialty chapters and gathered contributions from specialists who regularly treat this population of women. The combination of authoritative information and expert editing make The Geripause: Medical Management During the Late Menopause a useful tool for improving the health and quality of life in geripausal women.
