Pediatric Sensorineural Hearing Loss: Clinical Diagnosis and Management

Plural Publishing
Free sample

 Pediatric Sensorineural Hearing Loss: Clinical Diagnosis and Management is a quick reference manual for pediatricians, residents, audiologists, and others who work with pediatric patients. This text distills the breadth of knowledge on this topic into one that is manageable and easily comprehensible.

Pediatric hearing loss is an incredibly complex topic replete with controversies, evolving research findings, and subtle differences in management and diagnosis with different types of hearing loss. Currently, there is no such manual for pediatric hearing loss and the literature that is available can be overwhelming and difficult to read as a quick reference. This text provides practical content for daily clinical use alongside CT and MRI images, audiograms, and algorithms.

The chapters distill this complex topic into distinct subsets such as unilateral hearing loss, congenital hearing loss, and sudden sensorineural hearing loss. Pediatric Sensorineural Hearing Loss addresses clinical questions that arise in daily practice by pediatricians and otolaryngologists and can be used by residents for preparation for in-service training exams or as a teaching tool.

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. 

 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."

The quintessential guide to state-of-the-art cosmetic injection approaches, from two renowned experts!

This revised and updated second edition of Cosmetic Injection Techniques: A Text and Video Guide to Neurotoxins and Fillers by esteemed facial plastic surgeons Theda Kontis and Victor Lacombe builds on their bestselling first edition. Content is designed to augment knowledge of beginner injectors and train veteran injectors on how to finesse facial fillers and muscle-relaxing injections. Since publication of the first edition, understanding of the aging face has increased, while the number of non-surgical facial enhancements has continued to skyrocket. The book's primary focus is the improvement of minor facial irregularities and asymmetries using the latest injection procedures.

Divided into six sections and four appendices, the book starts with the patient consultation and concludes with a new section on fat-dissolving techniques using Kybella. The fillers section features new chapters on choosing the right filler, fine lines and skin boosters, the de Maio technique, the mandibular angle, poly-l-lactic acid for the décolleté, and gender-specific injections. All chapters follow a reader-friendly, consistent format with succinct paragraphs covering indications, injection techniques, anatomic considerations, precautions, risks, pearls, illustrations or photos, and additional reading. Select chapters reflect North American techniques utilized by the authors that vary from East Coast to West Coast.

Key Highlights
