Skin cancer is among the most commonly occurring cancers, with incidence rates climbing among patients of all ages. The nose is the most common site for these cases. The vast majority of skin cancers of the nose are treated surgically by plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and otolaryngologists. Surgical excision requires reconstruction to one degree or another and Principles of Nasal Reconstruction will prove extremely helpful to any surgeon contemplating reconstruction of defects resulting from skin cancer removal. This book offers multiple guided surgical techniques and references to provide insight and practical guidance to the surgeon and trainee performing nasal reconstructions

Neurologic Disorders of the Larynx (Hardcover)

By (author): Andrew Blitzer, Mitchell F. Brin, Lorraine Olson Ramig

The second edition of Neurologic Disorders of the Larynx is a comprehensive reference assembling the clinical knowledge of a multidisciplinary team of experts in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of laryngeal dysfunction. Divided into three main sections, the book opens with a review of basic physiologic concepts, covering relevant anatomy, neural innervation, and electrophysiology. It then provides practical discussion of examination and diagnostic techniques, including the use of electromyography, acoustic assessment, and FEEST. Chapters in the final section of the book address a range of clinical disorders, providing detailed descriptions of the underlying pathophysiology as well as the medical, surgical, and therapeutic treatments available.

Highlights of the second edition:

  • New chapters cover laryngeal dysfunction in sleep; FEES and FEEST testing; evaluation of paresis and paralysis; vocal fold augmentation, medialization, arytenoids adduction and re-innervation; and management of swallowing disorders and aspiration
  • Comprehensive presentation of different management techniques enables clinicians to select the strategy that works best for each particular situation
  • Current information on movement disorders includes descriptions of their manifestations in the larynx and appropriate speech therapy
  • Nearly 100 drawings and photographs demonstrate key concepts

This book is an indispensable single-volume resource for clinicians and residents involved in caring for patients with laryngeal disorders, including otolaryngologists, head and neck surgeons, and neurologists. It is also an ideal reference for speech pathologists, rehabilitation specialists, and speech scientists.

Cochlear implants are currently the standard treatment for profound sensorineural hearing loss. In the last decade, advances in auditory science and technology have not only greatly expanded the utility of electric stimulation to other parts of the auditory nervous system in addition to the cochlea, but have also demonstrated drastic changes in the brain in responses to electric stimulation, including changes in language development and music perception. Volume 20 of SHAR focused on basic science and technology underlying the cochlear implant. However, due to the newness of the ideas and technology, the volume did not cover any emerging applications such as bilateral cochlear implants, combined acoustic-electric stimulation, and other types of auditory prostheses, nor did it review brain plasticity in responses to electric stimulation and its perceptual and language consequences. This proposed volume takes off from Volume 20, and expands the examination of implants into new and highly exciting areas. This edited book starts with an overview and introduction by Dr. Fan-Gang Zeng. Chapters 2-9 cover technological development and the advances in treating the full spectrum of ear disorders in the last ten years. Chapters 10-15 discuss brain responses to electric stimulation and their perceptual impact. This volume is particularly exciting because there have been quantum leap from the traditional technology discussed in Volume 20. Thus, this volume is timely and will be of real importance to the SHAR audience.

Nasal physiology and pathophysiology is a relatively neglected area, yet without a deep knowledge of the physiology it is impossible to understand the impact of structural changes and the process of disease development or to make sound treatment decisions. With the help of numerous tables, schematic drawings, and color photographs, this book will enable the reader to understand the nasal physiology and pathophysiology in detail. All four functions of the nose – respiration, defense, olfaction, and cosmesis  – are covered. Each chapter addresses one important aspect in an accessible way, and each is written by an acknowledged expert on the topic under consideration. The various techniques of clinical evaluation of nasal function are fully discussed, and current trends and future directions in nasal physiologic research are also explored. This book will be of value to both practicing otorhinolaryngologists and novices in the field.​
