Endoscopic Ear Surgery

Free sample

Endoscopic Ear Surgery explores the emerging role of endoscopy in the evolution of otologic surgery and details both basic and advanced endoscopic ear surgery techniques. Rich with color images, this text addresses commonly encountered difficulties in chronic ear surgery and explains how endoscope-assisted surgical techniques can help. The use of endoscopes has given rise to the concept of “functional endoscopic ear surgery,” which helps reduce cholesteatoma recurrence rates while allowing less invasive, more physiologic surgical approaches. This book is the definitive resource for temporal bone surgeons and skull base surgeons who would like to acquire or fine tune their endoscopic ear surgery skills.

As in the acclaimed prior editions, Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, Fourth Edition focuses strictly on anatomy, 3D reconstruction, and step-by-step surgical techniques. Written by Peter-John Wormald, the richly illustrated text details anatomy and operative treatment of sinonasal conditions such as nasal polyposis, chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS), Samter's triad, eosinophilic mucus CRS, exophthalmos, acute orbital hemorrhage, orbital subperiosteal abscess, and a wide array of tumors.

The fourth edition reflects simplified anatomical nomenclature published in 2016 by Wormald et al, including reclassification of cells in the frontal recess and the extent of surgery of frontal sinus surgery (EFSS). This enables clearer understanding of impacted anatomy, most notably the frontal sinus drainage pathways. New and revised evidence-based procedures include the mega-antrostomy and pre-lacrimal approach to the maxillary sinus and use of anterior based pedicled flaps for frontal drillout. Refinements in other surgical techniques include endoscopic medial maxillectomy and resection of sinonasal neoplasms.

Anatomy and surgical approaches elucidated through 1,000 images including CTs, illustrations, and diagramsExquisite dissections by Rowan Valentine, who worked in the anatomy laboratory of the late Albert L. Rhoton Jr., internationally renowned author, educator, brain anatomist, and neurosurgeonDelineation of variations in frontal recess anatomy and difficult regions adjacent to the sinuses provides important surgical guidanceSeventy operative videos detail potential anatomical variations seen in the frontal sinuses, ancillary procedures such as DCR, orbital decompression, CSF leak closure, and skull base surgical approaches

This classic reference is a must-have for otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeons, as well as residents and fellows seeking a robust tutorial on the latest functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) techniques. It enables 3D understanding of diseased anatomy, associated surgical treatment decision making, and safer surgery.

Illustrated with hundreds of outstanding endoscopic images and corresponding drawings, this successfully established step-by-step guide to endoscopic sinus and skull base surgery is ideal for all specialists who need to stay current in the field. In this expanded second edition, practitioners will not only find basic and advanced procedures in endoscopic sinus surgery (including key criteria for patient selection), but also four entirely new chapters on anterior skull base surgery that reflect important recent developments.

Special features of the second edition:

Superbly illustrated, presenting over 1400 endoscopic images, photographs, and drawings Provides a practical management approach that leads to optimal outcomes: Who are the best candidates for specific procedures? When should medical treatment or surgery be used? Why should surgery be undertaken? How are the operative procedures performed?Covers the latest techniques for removal of skull base tumors and repair of skull base defects Includes new chapters on pathophysiology of rhinosinusitis, sense of smell, applied anatomy, the endoscopically assisted bimanual operating technique, transorbital surgery, interdisciplinary teamwork, and more Offers online access to 34 videos of endoscopic surgical procedures and patient interviews, for an excellent review and refresher Describes along with videos the new technique of piriform turbinoplasty that opens up the nasal valve area Provides Information for Patients leaflets that can also be downloaded

From diagnosis and preoperative counseling to evidence-based procedures, complication avoidance, and postoperative management, this book covers the gamut of topics clinicians face in everyday practice. All otolaryngologists, neurosurgeons, and maxillofacial surgeons will find it essential when making diagnostic and treatment decisions involving the paranasal sinuses and skull base.
