 Otolaryngology Prep and Practice covers all the major specialty components of otolaryngology: general adult and pediatric otolaryngology, head and neck surgery, otology, and facial plastic surgery.

The goal of this book is to have users not just read, but more importantly, to remember key pieces of information. This book is interactive, has multiple visual aids, and uses a tiered system to help guide studying. The three-level system distinguishes material that is necessary for general otolaryngology examination purposes (for those seeking the basic fundamentals), from that required for higher level learning (for those taking subspecialty examinations), to that which is intermediate in importance. The content focuses on clinical management decisions and consequences, high yield material from an information retention standpoint. The text includes color photographs, diagrams, practice case scenarios, multiple-choice questions, and various means for self-assessment or studying with a partner.

Key features:

In-depth practice cases3-tiered focus questions for all levelsOver 80 multiple choice questions and answersHighly-illustrated and full-color throughout

 Scary Cases in Otolaryngology follows a case-based approach that focuses on potential pitfalls, decision analysis, mistakes, and "near misses" in the management of patients with head and neck disorders. This is an invaluable resource for otolaryngologists as it presents difficult cases and builds a discussion around clinical management, prevention, and the legal and ethical aspects of those cases. Current and future professionals in otolaryngology can analyze their own methodologies as well as the work of their peers to continually promote a safer and healthier environment for their patients.

Scary Cases in Otolaryngology is an extension of the annual Scary Cases Conference held by the Boston University School of Medicine. The conference began in 2011 and aims to improve patient safety by addressing complex and controversial cases that involve increased risk, complications, and unfavorable outcomes. The cases in the text have been selected from previous conference presentations.

This exciting and unique book addresses questions such as

Did you make a wrong diagnosis before arriving at the correct one?Do you believe that you did everything correctly and the outcome was still unsatisfactory?Did a patient have a serious condition that was difficult to diagnose?Were there major complications?Did you have a difficult ethical dilemma?Were you required to treat a condition beyond your expertise?


This innovative text includes clinical information on cases provided by faculty from top medical schools along with their narratives on what they learned. Contributors also include experts in medical malpractice and malpractice liability insurance. Practicing otolaryngologists, otolaryngology residents, malpractice attorneys, law students, otolaryngology nurse practitioners and primary care physicians will benefit from the examples in these "scary cases."

In the tradition of the acclaimed first edition, experts from the University of Cincinnati's Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery present new case reviews. Every chapter presents patient-based scenarios to prepare practitioners for ENT cases they will encounter during rounds, rotations, and patient exams. By establishing a uniform algorithm in obtaining and utilizing discreet points of data, the authors encourage a disciplined approach to patient assessment and management options.

Sections organized by anatomy and subspecialty enhance the ability to learn and retain knowledge. For example, benign and malignant pathologies are systematically detailed in anatomical sections dedicated to the neurovascular structures, oral cavity and pharynx, larynx, thyroid, salivary gland, and skin. The text covers the full age continuum - including congenital, acquired, benign, and malignant disorders such as pediatric subglottic stenosis and facial, head, and neck cancers that primarily affect adults.
