New York/Stuttgart – With more than 900 high-quality illustrations, ENT-Head and Neck Surgery: Essential Procedures is a step-by-step guide to must-know procedures for the full range of ENT conditions. Published by Thieme, this book is one of the few manuals covering the whole spectrum of general surgery for otolaryngology and head and neck surgery.
"The purpose of ENT-Head and Neck Surgery: Essential Procedures is to present only a selection of those proven surgical interventions that are important for both the practicing otolaryngologist and the beginner in a clear and concise manner," says author Juergen Theissing, MD, PhD, University of Nuremberg.
Available for the first time in English, this thoroughly-researched book carefully lays out the most established and important surgical techniques for the full range of ENT conditions. Each chapter, organized in a consistent format, begins with the anatomic, functional, and clinical aspects required to understand a particular procedure. This is followed by crucial information on indications, surgical instruments and postoperative care.
Through strategically placed, easy-to-reference text boxes, the authors emphasize surgical rules, tips, tricks and risks while offering readers advice on managing potential complications. Additional features include sections on laser surgery and a comprehensive demonstration of the basics of middle ear surgery.
With the drive toward ever-increasing specialization, otolaryngologists are continually confronted with situations that transcend what they learned in school. ENT-Head and Neck Surgery: Essential Procedures is a perfect companion for otolaryngology fellows, residents and medical professionals in training and daily practice.
"[This book is] an immediate source of comprehensive, authoritative, well organized, and clearly written information," says Eugene N. Meyers, MD, FACS, FRCE.
