Review
REVIEW OF THE PREVIOUS EDITION: “The text is a worthwhile reference for those in the beginning stages of their career, such as medical students rotating on-service seeing otolaryngology patients and procedures for the first time. Allied health professionals serving otolaryngology patients may use it as a quick reference during clinics. It is especially useful to trained otolaryngologists seeking to rapidly review an organized handheld resource for board examination review. . . .Overall, this is a very nice reference. I would recommend this as a part of every training otolaryngologist’s library, designating it as especially useful for a comprehensive yet succinct board review.” –Kristen Hurst, University of Iowa, Annals of Otology, Rhinology, & Laryngology (2015)

REVIEW OF THE PREVIOUS EDITION: “I have rarely learnt so much, in seconds of thumbing through a textbook, as I did reading about central sleep apnoea…[It] is ideal for fast access reference and revision on the flight to the exit exams! In practice I have opened this many times, picking subjects at random and found the writing style reader friendly throughout.” –Liam M. Flood, FRCS, FRCSI, James Cook University Hospital, Journal of Laryngology & Otology (2013)

This section focuses on the operative management of anastomotic and staple line leaks and how to definitively manage these surgical emergencies as well as achieve source control and stabilization. Later chapters focus on specific complications following bariatric surgery with specific focus on RYGB, vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG), biliary pancreatic diversion, and gastric band. Complications include gastric fistula, gastric staple line disruption following VSG, gastro-jejunal leak following RYGB, relux following bariatric surgery, and failure of weight loss following bariatric surgery. These sections are written by experts in the field of bariatrics and include evidence based medicine as well as expert opinion on the management of bariatric complications. The sections provide a review of the literature and references at the close of each section.
