Head & Neck Surgery

by David Goldenberg

Surgical Techniques in Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery is intended to provide clinicians with thorough, accessible and clinically useful details of surgery for nearly all disorders cared for by otolaryngologists. The aim of writing this book is to provide a highly illustrated reference for surgeons of all stages trying to get organized before they observe, assist, or perform a head and neck oncologic surgery procedure. Many textbooks and articles are exhaustive about the indications for a procedure and the expected outcomes, but lack operational details such as patient positioning or instrument choice. The authors and coauthors endeavored to describe how they approach some of the commonly performed ablative head and neck procedures, whether open or endoscopic. This book is divided into 7 sections and consists of total 26 chapters. The first section discusses on sinonasal cancer and covers medial maxillectomy, endoscopic medial maxillectomy, maxillectomy, anterior craniofacial resection, and endoscopic anterior skull base resection and endoscopic repair of skull base defects. Oral cavity and oropharynx, and surgery of the larynx and hypopharynx are described in second and third section. Fourth sections of this book focuses on neck dissections. Thyroidectomy and parathyroid surgery are described in fifth section. The sixth section presents a discussion on salivary and parapharyngeal space tumors. The last section of this book deals with the surgery for skin cancer. The chapters in this Atlas are intended to capture the small anatomic and procedural details that are often left out of the main textbook references.
