Recent Advances in Otolaryngology 9

by Holger Sudhoff, Mahmood Bhutta

The book “Recent Advances in Otolaryngology 9” gives brief overview of the developments in the field of otolaryngology. Chapters 1 and 3 discusses two new diagnostic and staging methods for head and neck cancer i.e. optical diagnostics and PET-CT. Chapters 2 and 5 describe the role of stem cells in the development of head and neck malignancy, and the role of hypoxia signalling in driving chronic inflammation in the middle ear. Chapter 7 discusses the relatively new entity of superior canal dehiscence syndrome: its diagnosis and current treatment. This book also summarizes some new and promising methods for treatment, which are at the preclinical stage, and also some are clinically established. These include vestibular implants (Chapter 9), audiovestibular regeneration (Chapter 8), Eustachian balloon tuboplasty (Chapter 6), middle ear implants (Chapter 4), and the medical treatment of lymphatic and vascular malformations (Chapter 10).
