New York/Stuttgart – “Cholesteatoma,” recently published by Thieme, focuses on presentations of actual patients and follows that patient through the management of their specific condition. Detailed instructions include preparing for what might be discovered at surgery, selecting from various surgical options, and learning what outcome to expect. Cholesteatoma is a destructive and expanding growth in the middle ear.
"Eric E. Smouha and Dennis I. Bojrab have organized this unique book to clarify the understanding of cholesteatoma management with one-of-a-kind photos, descriptive artwork, and surgical videos [on Thieme’s MediaCenter website]. They have significantly added to current literature describing the pathways of [the] spread of cholesteatoma and the surgical and reconstructive approaches used for its management, with particular attention to special situations that one encounters during surgery.” from the Foreword by Simon C. Parisier, MD, FACS, Professor of Otolaryngology, Otology, and Neurotology, New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, New York, New York.
The accompanying 25 surgical videos (totaling two hours), performed and narrated by the authors, show surgical control of disease with attention to special situations that arise at surgery. Over 340 vibrant, full-color illustrations demonstrate the different disease progressions not shown in any other text. Otologists, otolaryngologists-head and neck surgeons, fellows, and residents will refer to this concise reference on a daily basis for the most up-to-date information on cholesteatomas and other middle-ear lesions.
