A single-volume resource for managing the most difficult cases in head and neck cancer

A single-volume resource for managing the most difficult cases in head and neck cancer

Authoritative and lavishly illustrated, this book is a valuable compendium of surgical techniques for the most complex oncologic problems in the head and neck patient. It distills the author's decades of experience in the surgical management of cases in which the excision of complex lesions is difficult and reconstruction is problematic.

In the first half of the book, each chapter addresses cancer in a different region of the head and neck.

Each chapter provides discussion of etiology, pathology, pathophysiology, and surgical anatomy, providing the necessary background for diagnostic evaluation, surgical treatment as well as nonsurgical treatment, including chemotherapy and radiation. Additional chapters cover such important topics as care for the pediatric patient, radiotherapy, restoration secondary to tumor ablation, and speech, voice, and swallowing implications following ablative procedures.

Features:

  • Detailed descriptions that guide the clinician through each surgical procedure
  • Comprehensive discussion of management strategies that provides clinicians with a solid understanding of the available treatments and the possibilities and limitations of each
  • Nearly 1,000 high-quality illustrations, photographs, and radiographic images that demonstrate pathologic and surgical concepts in precise detail
  • Coverage of the latest techniques in skull base surgery and laryngeal surgery
  • Valuable discussion of nursing care, nutrition, and speech therapy

An essential resource for optimizing the care of patients with advanced cancer, this book is ideal for clinicians and residents in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, oncology, and general surgery.
