Plural Publishing
Free sample

Otology, Neurotology, and Skull Base Surgery: Clinical Reference Guide is a comprehensive guide designed for rapid clinical review. Written in a concise and approachable outline format, this text provides a condensed amount of high-yield information. This clinically relevant resource is organized into 12 sections that are broken down into their most important and fundamental parts by chapter, with key topics such as anatomy and embryology, hearing loss, cochlear implantation, skull base tumors, vestibular disorders, and pediatric otology.

Formatted like the bestselling "Pasha" (Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery) pocket guide, this text serves as both a study resource and a portable reference guide. Otology, Neurotology, and Skull Base Surgery can be used by otolaryngology residents on their neurotology rotations, neurotology fellows throughout their training, and otologists and neurotologists preparing for recertification. Audiologists and speech-language pathologists will also benefit from having a convenient reference guide to better understand their patients’ diagnoses.
