Laryngeal Physiology for the Surgeon and Clinician

Laryngeal Physiology for the Surgeon and Clinician, Second Edition facilitates a sound understanding of the three principal functional priorities of the larynx: protection, respiration, and phonation. Working on the basis that a sound understanding of these functional priorities is essential to the management of the myriad diseases besetting this complex organ, Dr. Sasaki explores these three functional categories in terms of phylogeny, functional morphology, and neuromuscular reflexes. The book features numerous illustrations and tables and most chapters are preceded by focused case presentations introducing relevant clinical descriptions. Uniquely and invaluably, Sasaki has included original experimental data from the Yale Larynx Laboratory in order to support physiologic performance important to the understanding of clinical behavior.

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.
