Innovations in Endoscopic Ear Surgery
Innovations in Endoscopic Ear Surgery
This book focuses on endoscopic ear surgery, an area that has been the focus of cutting-edge research around the globe, particularly in Italy, the United States and Japan.
Ear surgery has begun to catch up with other fields of medicine in incorporating the endoscope into surgical procedures, and endoscopic, minimally invasive ear surgery is garnering international attention.
Innovations in Endoscopic Ear Surgery presents the work of the Japanese “school” of surgeons involved in advancing endoscopic ear surgery and, in particular, transcanal endoscopic ear surgery (TEES). This book not only seeks to explain TEES in detail to allay surgeons’ concerns regarding this procedure, it also describes the recent advances such as the incorporation of powered instruments to extend the range of TEES; combining TEES with the latest techniques in regenerative medicine; taking advantage of the progress in computer technology such as 3D simulations and virtual reality and more. Innovations in Endoscopic Ear Surgery is designed to help smooth the learning curve for beginners as well as guide all readers onto the new paths which endoscopic ear surgery is embarking upon.
This volume serves as a practical guide for the primary care provider to better understand the clinical history, clinical examination, and accurate management of ENT disease. Additionally, the text aims to help general physicians and nurse practitioners to reduce the number of specialist referrals for patients requiring ENT care. Topics cover the most common ENT symptoms that can expect to be managed in a primary care setting, ENT diagnostic instrumentation for surgery, and how to determine when a patient can be managed in a general practice or referred to secondary care. Other topics cover the history of ENT, common red flags, rhinology, and laryngology.
ENT in Primary Care: A Concise Guide will be a useful resource for medical students, general physicians in training, board certified physicians, and nurse practitioners treating ENT patients.

- Chapter bibliographies with current literature sources augment case reviews.
- Multiple-choice questions serve as a robust study tool, optimizing knowledge acquisition and retention.
This must-have resource enables otolaryngology residents and practitioners to learn from case studies and incorporate state-of-the-art techniques into daily practice, thereby optimizing patient care.
The first book in an exciting new series, Head, Neck and Dental Emergencies provides the reader with a working approach to the diagnosis and management of these patients in casualty. It has been laid out in a similar way to the Oxford Handbooks series – a small format, plastic-covered, note-based, practical volume for looking up information quickly. The book covers how to diagnose and manage all urgent or emergent problems that occur above the collar bones. Emergency care must be simple and quick so this book comprises short notes, illustrations and photographs, with an emphasis on establishing the diagnosis while maintaining a high index of suspicion. Where possible, the book covers one topic per on one to three pages and uses a series of four icons to allow rapid identification of the degree of urgency. This system will help the reader to get an idea of how soon each problem should be seen. Aimed primarily at undergraduate dentistry students, this book will also have a wide postgraduate market amongst dentists and junior doctors and nurses in accident and emergency medicine, maxillofacial surgery, ENT, opthalmology, anesthetics and plastic surgery.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery: Anatomy, Three-Dimensional Reconstruction, and Surgical Technique 4th Edition
As in the acclaimed prior editions, Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, Fourth Edition focuses strictly on anatomy, 3D reconstruction, and step-by-step surgical techniques. Written by Peter-John Wormald, the richly illustrated text details anatomy and operative treatment of sinonasal conditions such as nasal polyposis, chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS), Samter’s triad, eosinophilic mucus CRS, exophthalmos, acute orbital hemorrhage, orbital subperiosteal abscess, and a wide array of tumors.
The fourth edition reflects simplified anatomical nomenclature published in 2016 by Wormald et al, including reclassification of cells in the frontal recess and the extent of surgery of frontal sinus surgery (EFSS). This enables clearer understanding of impacted anatomy, most notably the frontal sinus drainage pathways. New and revised evidence-based procedures include the mega-antrostomy and pre-lacrimal approach to the maxillary sinus and use of anterior based pedicled flaps for frontal drillout. Refinements in other surgical techniques include endoscopic medial maxillectomy and resection of sinonasal neoplasms.
- Anatomy and surgical approaches elucidated through 1,000 images including CTs, illustrations, and diagrams
- Exquisite dissections by Rowan Valentine, who worked in the anatomy laboratory of the late Albert L. Rhoton Jr., internationally renowned author, educator, brain anatomist, and neurosurgeon
- Delineation of variations in frontal recess anatomy and difficult regions adjacent to the sinuses provides important surgical guidance
- Seventy operative videos detail potential anatomical variations seen in the frontal sinuses, ancillary procedures such as DCR, orbital decompression, CSF leak closure, and skull base surgical approaches
This classic reference is a must-have for otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeons, as well as residents and fellows seeking a robust tutorial on the latest functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) techniques. It enables 3D understanding of diseased anatomy, associated surgical treatment decision making, and safer surgery.
Oropharyngeal Dysphagia: Videoendoscopy-Guided Work-up and Management
This book is a practical guide that will assist ENT doctors in interpreting swallowing videoendoscopies correctly and in choosing complementary instrumental examinations to consolidate or exclude their provisional diagnosis. In addition, it provides speech-language pathologists with valuable hints on how to treat patients with oropharyngeal dysphagia more efficiently. The book is constructed around videoendoscopic features. The relevance of these features to diagnosis and treatment is carefully described with the aid of numerous high-quality illustrations. Beyond this, the relationship of videoendoscopy to two further instrumental examinations – videofluorography and pharyngeal manometry– and to the three treatment paths of texture adaptation, rehabilitation, and surgery is explained. The use of pictograms in this context helps to elucidate the connections, creating in the reader’s mind “clusters of behaviors” of benefit in clinical practice. The book also includes a short summary on swallowing anatomy and physiology, a chapter on medications inducing dysphagia, key take-home messages, and suggestions for further reading.
