Thoroughly revised since the previous edition, Laryngeal Electromyography provides the latest advances on electromyographic procedure and diagnostics. This third edition includes concise, practical coverage on the details of the procedure and clinical applications.
The second edition systematically explores biomechanical measures of neurophysiologic events substantially augmenting relevance to clinical experience, while presenting newly recognized evidence of a functioning laryngeal motor plexus, an understanding potentially contributing to discoveries of physiologic compensatory behavior.
In Dr. Sasaki's own words, the book "does not contain all the answers to challenges encountered in clinical practice, nor will its perusal endow the reader with the necessary capability to justify new operative procedures or rehabilitation strategies. While it does present a selective point of view, it does not intend to exclude competing perspectives generated by systematic inquiry. Rather, it is meant to serve as a guide for the serious trainee and as a reference manual for those discerning Head and Neck Surgeons, Speech Language Pathologists, Anesthesiologists and Deglutologists who would seek to extend the boundaries of our knowledge in laryngeal physiology."
Almost all of Dr. Sasaki's career has been dedicated to stretching those boundaries himself, and the extent to which he has succeeded is reflected in his standing in the community, through the numerous awards he and his laboratory have attained, and through the content of this second edition: an outstanding contribution to the laryngology literature.
