Textbook of Voice & Laryngology

by KK Handa

The field of voice and laryngology has made rapid strides in the past decade. This has been possible due to the advancement in technology and our better understanding of the basics of laryngology. Larynx is an area that was difficult to visualize at one time; but, today, not only it can be examined in detail but also every associated condition can be treated either conservatively or surgically. This book “Textbook of Voice and Laryngology” comprises of total 20 chapters. The first chapter discusses on the clinical anatomy of larynx. Second chapter focuses on Problems in voice evaluation, voice material, voice testing, and aerodynamic measures. Imaging techniques in the study of the larynx are broadly described in the third chapter. Laryngopharyngeal reflux, spasmodic dysphonia, care of singing voice, the aging voice, and voice therapeutic approaches are covered thoroughly in fourth to eighth chapters. There is a very close relationship between use of medicines and voice which is discussed in ninth chapter. A brief discussion on vocal fold immobility, laryngeal framework surgery, pediatric voice disorders, office-based laryngeal procedures, recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, lasers in phonosurgery and laryngology, adult laryngotracheal stenosis, and reconstruction techniques have been presented in 10th to 17th chapters. The aim of 18th chapter is to provide clinicians with a basic understanding of the swallowing process and to present an overview of the etiologies of pediatric dysphagia, the recommended diagnostic workup, and current management strategies. Effects of swallow therapy in oropharyngeal dysphagia and laryngeal management in sleep apnea patients are covered in the last two chapters of this book.
