ABC of Ear, Nose and Throat (ABC Series)


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

ABC of Ear, Nose and Throat is a long established best-selling guide to the management of common conditions of the Ears, Nose and Throat. It follows a symptomatic approach for evaluation and prioritisation of common presentations, and provides guidance on primary care assessment and management, and on when and why to refer for a specialist opinion.

Fully revised to reflect the current practice of oto-rhino-laryngology and head and neck surgery, new chapters address the increasing specialization and improved understanding of the likely causes and specialist treatment for symptoms such as tinnitus, nasal discharge, nasal obstruction, facial plastic surgery, head and neck trauma and foreign bodies, and non-specialist assessment and examination. There is new content on rhinoplasty, pinnaplasty, non-melanoma skin tumours, thyroid disease and head and neck cancer, with many new full colour illustrations and algorithms throughout.

Hearing Aids (Springer Handbook of Auditory Research)


This volume will serve as the first Handbook of its kind in the area of hearing aid research, often the least-defined, least-understood, part of the multi-disciplinary research process. Most scientific training is very advanced within the particular disciplines but provides little opportunity for systematic introduction to the issues and obstacles that prevent effective hearing-aid related research. This area has emerged as one of critical importance, as signified by a single specialized meeting (the International Hearing Aid Conference, IHCON) that brings together specialists from the disparate disciplines involved, including both university and industry researchers. Identification of the key steps that enable high-impact basic science to ultimately result in significant clinical advances that improve patient outcome is critical. This volume will provide an overview of current key issues in hearing aid research from the perspective of many different disciplines, not only from the perspective of the key funding agencies, but also from the scientists and clinicians who are currently involved in hearing aid research. It will offer insight into the experience, current technology and future technology that can help improve hearing aids, as scientists and clinicians typically have little or no formal training over the whole range of the individual disciplines that are relevant. The selection and coverage of topics insures that it will have lasting impact, well beyond immediate, short-term, or parochial concerns.   ?

Surgery for Cochlear and Other Auditory Implants


By (author): Mario Sanna, Paul Merkus, Rolien H. Free, Maurizio Falcioni

This comprehensive, high-level surgical reference and atlas is tailored
for surgeons who are undertaking training for cochlear implant
procedures and implantable auditory devices and for experienced
surgeons who would like to expand their knowledge, improve their skills
and outcomes, and learn advanced surgical techniques.

Following the principle underlying Professor Sanna’s other successful
publications, Surgery for Cochlear
and Other Auditory Implants
takes an integrated approach to
anatomy, imaging, technology, decision making, surgical procedures
described step by step, and clinical cases.

This book allows readers to:

  • Improve the e?ciency and outcomes of cochlear implantation and
    other auditory implant surgeries
  • Learn the required basic and advanced surgical techniques
  • Evaluate di?erent surgical options and types of implants
  • Review common and uncommon variations of anatomy and malformations
  • Understand issues and surgical modifications unique to pediatric
    cochlear implantation, to revision surgery, and in postmeningitis,
    otosclerosis, and NF2 cases
  • Find decision-making algorithms for di?cult pathologies
  • Examine common and not so common intraoperative dilemmas and
    identify strategies to resolve them
  • Review preoperative assessment and set up and outcomes
  • Find out about classification systems in cochlear implant
    failure, malformations, otosclerosis, and post meningitis

Supplementing the 1200 images within the book are 15 outstanding videos
available on Thieme’s MediaCenter demonstrating the implantation of the
di?erent cochlear implantation devices that are currently available and
the application of brainstem implants in these situations: tumor
removal, malformation (missing auditory nerve in children), and
cochlear ossification.

Auditory Mechanisms: Processes and Models – Proceedings of the Ninth International Symposium


The workshop brought together experts in genetics, molecular and cellular biology, physiology, engineering, physics, mathematics, audiology and medicine to present current work and to review the critical issues of inner ear function. A special emphasis of the workshop was on analytical model based studies. Experimentalists and theoreticians thus shared their points of view. The topics ranged from consideration of the hearing organ as a system to the study and modeling of individual auditory cells including molecular aspects of function. Some of the topics in the book are: motor proteins in hair cells; mechanical and electrical aspects of transduction by motor proteins; function of proteins in stereocilia of hair cells; production of acoustic force by stereocilia, mechanical properties of hair cells and the organ of Corti; mechanical vibration of the organ of Corti; wave propagation in tissue and fluids of the inner ear; sound amplification in the cochlea; critical oscillations; cochlear nonlinearity, and mechanisms for the production of otoacoustic emissions. This book will be invaluable to researchers and students in auditory science.
