For all ear doctors, otosclerosis is an intriguing condition. The disease appears to occur only in the human race and mainly in young adults. The pathology of the disorder has only been known for a little more than a century. Treatment of the fixed stapes has included many special therapies during that period. Because of the evolution of technology in medicine, the response to the development of otosclerosis has become increasingly clear in spite of the fact that the cause of this ear disease is still unknown.

Literature on otosclerosis includes thousands of publications, amongst which many textbooks. Recent books are often composed of chapters with a specific section on otosclerosis, written by a specialist in that area. Most of the time it concerns proceedings publications after an otological congress or symposium. A textbook containing all facets of the disorder is still missing.

To fill this gap, this Treatise on otosclerosis and its treatment has been compiled. As many publications as possible, from the discovery of the ear disease in the second half of the 19th century until now, have been used to compile a well-organized textbook. All the latest aspects of otosclerosis such as history, aetiology, genetic factors, histopathology, current stapedotomy procedure and complications in otosclerosis surgery are discussed extensively. In addition, attention was paid to cochlear otosclerosis, age and otosclerosis, imaging, hearing aids and future perspectives of otosclerosis treatment. This treatise on otosclerosis is a complete textbook that deals with all aspects of the ear disorder extensively.

This is the book for young doctors trying to bluff their way into erudite otolaryngological circles by giving the impression that their ENT education was not wasted.

Our psychiatric advisers tell us that this is a form of insecurity and, like most things in life (according to them) dates back to early childhood and the fear of rejection by or loss of their mother. As doctors, they fear losing the attention of their patient are not really happy unless he is anesthetized and will not run away.- And many more!Learn the fun facts and information you missed in medical school the magic and romance behind acoustic neuroma; madness and anesthesia; famous tracheotomies; the history of nasal polyps; and so much more.

A key new reference dedicated to the surgical management of sleep-disordered breathing...

The importance of unobstructed respiration in sleep, and the long-term risks of sleep apnea, cannot be overemphasized. The therapeutic efficacy of the widely prescribed "gold standard," CPAP, is compromised by low patient acceptance and compliance.

In light of the limits of CPAP and other forms of conservative therapy (e.g., mandibular advancement devices), there is a growing tendency to explore and expand the role of surgery in the treatment of severe sleep apnea. New insights and developments in pathophysiology, surgical techniques, and implants have opened the way to increased success in treating sleep apnea surgically.

This new work by leading international specialists provides a detailed, evidence-based approach to selected advanced surgical techniques, beginning with patient selection criteria, discussion of indications for and against surgery, choice of procedure (also in combinations), and more.

Key Features:

Systematic, practice-oriented approach to examination, diagnosis, and treatmentStep-by-step description of surgical concepts and techniquesSuperbly illustrated with full-colored photographs and drawingsFocus on those procedures that have been shown to be successful in specific situationsDiscussion of outcomes, success rates, risks, and potential complications; where evidence-based data are not available, expert opinion is provided

Current Concepts of Sleep Apnea Surgery will be welcomed by residents, fellows, and board-certified surgeons in otorhinolaryngology and head and neck surgery.
