Middle Ear Diseases and Surery Viewed from the Physioloy of Pressure Regulation

The physiology and pathophysiology of the ME viewed from its ventilation and pressure regulation both by the ET and TMGE are described in this book. This is one of the main research projects in which our department has been involved for several years. Although, as a matter of course, this is still far from a perfect job, I believe that several new findings that would not had been discovered had we only paid attention to the ET were obtained through these studies, and I sincerely hope that these findings are useful in the daily clinical practice of otology.

The studies described herein have found that a well-pneumatized mastoid is important for ME ventilation and pressure regulation, and that mastoidectomy not only deprives the mastoid of this important physiological function but also probably causes postoperative recurrent cholesteatoma. It is therefore suggested that the mode of ME surgery should be carefully selected in line with the surgical intervention to the mastoid, and that irreversible and organic impairment of the TMGE function in the mastoid, as well as the ET function, are closely related to the pathogenesis of cholesteatoma, which is the worst sequelae of OME in children.

Although I feel it is necessary to further clarify the pathogenesis of ME inflammatory diseases in order to develop new treatments on the basis of these findings, I believe this book will be useful for otologists in their daily clinical practice.

Solid evidence now shows that knowing why we hurt will help us heal. 

All pain is real, and for many people it is a debilitating part of everyday life. In a world where 1 in 5 of us experience ongoing pain and where there is increasing evidence for the failure of synthetic drugs, take heart: help is at hand. It is now known that understanding more about why things hurt can actually help treat pain.

Recent advances in fields such as neurophysiology, brain imaging, immunology, psychology and cellular biology have provided an explanatory platform from which to explore pain. In everyday language accompanied by quirky illustrations, Explain Pain Second Edition discusses how pain responses are produced by the brain, how responses to injury from the autonomic motor and immune systems in your body contribute to pain, and why pain can persist after tissues have had plenty of time to heal.

Co-author Dr David Butler, founder of the Neuro Orthopaedic Institute, says that "it is no longer acceptable that pain be just managed: we must expect that it can be treated, and sufferers can alter it themselves through education."

Explain Pain has sold around 60,000 copies world-wide in 5 languages and continues to inspire clinical research and multidisciplinary pain treatment globally. Explain Pain aims to give people in pain the power to challenge pain and to consider new models for viewing what happens to your body and brain during pain. Once they have learnt about the processes involved they can follow a scientific route to recovery. 

Why a second edition?

A decade of scientific research is a lot – and we need to keep on top of it.

In the last 10 years there has been increasing support for therapeutic neuroscience education from clinical trials, educational science, neuroscience, plain logic and the failure of drug therapy on chronic pain outcomes. Lorimer and David have subtly changed some of the language so that the second edition can be delivered with much more authority than the first.
