Endoscopic Ear Surgery


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Natasha Pollak

Endoscopic techniques have revolutionized many surgical specialties and allowed the gradual development of new, minimally invasive procedures. Otology is no exception. The aim of Endoscopic Ear Surgery is to explore the role of endoscopy in the evolution of otologic surgery, and to introduce the surgeon to basic and advanced endoscopic ear surgery techniques.

Rich with color images, the book also serves as an atlas of temporal bone anatomy and pathologic processes as seen through an ear endoscope.

Key features include:

  • Principles of endoscopic ear surgery
  • Evolving concepts of middle ear physiology and ventilation routes
  • Basic and advanced endoscopic ear surgery techniques
  • Endoscopic lateral skull base surgery
  • Endoscope-assisted office procedures

Endoscopic Ear Surgery is primarily intended for otolaryngologists who perform ear surgery and would like to acquire or fine tune their endoscopic ear surgery skills. It is also helpful to otolaryngology residents during their otology block. This book is valuable to anyone performing ear procedures in the operating room or in the office.

From the Foreward:
Endoscopic Ear Surgery provides a current and comprehensive discussion of the widening range of surgical procedures that can be accomplished through endoscopically based, minimally invasive techniques. Natasha Pollak has gathered an international panel of experienced endoscopic ear surgeons who present detailed information about the role of endoscopic approaches in a wide range of otologic and neurotologic procedures. These authors offer practical information about the broad role of endoscopic surgery for the ear and the logistics of performing endoscopic procedures in both the operating room and office settings. They present compelling discussions of not only endoscopic approaches to the middle ear and mastoid, but also the expansion of these techniques to the lateral skull base, the posterior fossa, and the cochlea. Through comprehensive narratives, detailed graphics, and careful photographic illustrations, Endoscopic Ear Surgery provides both the novice otolaryngologist and the experienced otologist/neurotologist and neurosurgeon with a complete and thorough presentation of these cutting-edge techniques.

Textbooks rarely capture the excitement and momentum of an evolving field in quite the way that this present publication is able to accomplish. Dr. Pollak and her contributors are to be congratulated for this outstanding work, which will provide a benchmark in its field for years to come. I highly recommend Endoscopic Ear Surgery, and I am confident that you will find it both practical and useful.”
