    The advancement of tactics used in managing pediatric airway disorders can be attributed to an overall growth of collective knowledge among medical health professionals. This book is designed to sustain that growth of knowledge, with 18 chapters of insight and information by distinguished medical experts in both pediatric anesthesia and pediatric otolaryngology. It concisely and thoroughly covers topics such as subglottic stenosis, pharyngeal airway obstruction, laryngeal airway obstruction, obesity and sleep apnea and thoracic airway obstruction, among others. Chapters include scenarios where the skills and expertise of both anesthesiologists and otolaryngologists are being continually tested; the use of newer drugs and repurposing of older drugs; the combination of smaller amounts of different types of sedatives while avoiding intra-op narcotics and maintaining spontaneous ventilation are described in detail; Finally, a comprehensive review of new research emerging about ultra-rapid narcotics metabolizers among patients, making them more susceptible to medications, such as codeine, along with the latest information on the purported potential neurodevelopmental toxicity of some anesthetic agents are also included. Working as both an educational tool and a practical resource, medical practitioners, students and educators will find this text to be a valuable tool for the safely managing the pediatric patient undergoing anesthesia for difficult airway scenarios.

    Carcinomas of the larynx and hypopharynx present unique challenges when it comes to their assessment and management. Management involves the essential dilemma of optimizing cure rates while also ensuring that potential disability due to compromised airway, voice and swallowing is minimized. Treatment decisions involve careful disease assessment, judicious multispecialty decision-making, and subsequent meticulous implementation of the selected treatment modalities.The critical nature of each of these steps has led to dramatic advances in assessment techniques (radiology, endoscopy and photography, stroboscopy, narrow band imaging, contact endoscopy) and also in treatment methods (radiation therapy, combined concurrent chemo-radiation, combined sequential chemo-radiation, trans-oral CO2 laser and robotic surgery, partial laryngectomy, total laryngectomy, extended total laryngectomy). As such, treatment decisions have become increasingly complex with the twin objectives of maximizing cure as well as function preservation and are based on tumor stage, tumor location, systemic co-morbidities, nutritional status, patient priorities, and social and economic factors.    This multidisciplinary book has been written by a team of editors with considerable experience and expertise in these critical areas and a deep understanding of teamwork and the strengths and limitations of individual technologies and treatments. It presents a homogeneous and unbiased view that is applicable to all specialties involved in the care of larynx and hypopharynx cancers.

    This atlas focuses on selected aspects of cochlear anatomy as illustrated by material prepared by the microdissection technique, a three-dimensional perspective not possible with standard histological approaches. Although much of the material in this text was processed by the microdissection method, photomicrographs from conventionally cross sectioned inner ear tissues and scanning electron microscopy, are also presented. Taken together, these technical approaches provide different, complementary views of inner ear anatomy, and offer a more informative understanding than is possible with any of the methods used alone. While micrographs obtained from microdissected material appear sporadically in journal articles, there is no comprehensive collection of such images currently available. The illustrations assembled in this atlas are complementary to the more traditional histologic images and drawings available in standard texts, and aide in understanding the intricate anatomy of the cochlea. Cochlear Anatomy via Microdissection with Clinical Implications will be a useful resource for otolaryngologists, anatomists, audiologists, and neuroscientists. Those engaged in cochlear implantation, physicians and researchers in the growing fields of implantable hearing aids and drug delivery to the inner ear, and members of industry involved in designing, manufacturing, and marketing implantable hearing aids will also find this atlas of great value.

    The purpose of this book is to contribute to basic and clinical medical research on cochlear implants for inner ear malformation and cochlear nerve deficiency. Cochlear implantation for children is performed worldwide, and the outcomes concerning speech and hearing acquisition are epoch-making. However, there are some difficulties associated with applying this operative treatment to patients who have complicated inner ear malformations or cochlear nerve deficiencies that have slowed the development of their speech, hearing, and/or sense of balance. The first part of the book outlines the fundamental aspects of inner ear maldevelopment to facilitate readers' understanding of cochlear implantation from the point of view of embryology, morphology, and genetics. In turn, the second part describes current clinical cases and presents successful clinical reports. The book offers a primary resource for otolaryngologists, neurologists, and pediatricians with an interest in this field.

    "We have built on the previous edition by adding new chapters relating to genetics, neuroplasticity, expanding criteria for implantation, the application of implant technology to tinnitus and vestibular issues, music perception, intraoperative monitoring, device reliability and reimplantation, and the use of quality-of-life and outcome measures--areas that occupy the forefront of cochlear implantation. Other chapters have been revised to reflect current research and clinical applications and provide the most recent information related to the clinical and translational sciences that continue to advance this exciting technology and its implementation. Patient outcomes, candidacy criteria, technical design, surgical technique, and programming and processing concepts are constantly progressing, and increasing numbers of individuals are gaining significant benefit. Our goal was to create a book that will provide both experienced and new and budding otolaryngologists-head and neck surgeons, neurotologists, audiologists, neuroscientists, neurophysiologists, speech pathologists, teachers of the deaf, psychologists, and others interested in cochlear implants with an extraordinary resource for years to come"--Provided by publisher.

    "For all specialists and trainees performing otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, knowledge of potential complications is integral to successful procedures. Complications in Otolaryngology fills an important gap in the field by examining complications in all areas related to otolaryngology and head and neck surgery outside of facial plastic and aesthetic surgery. From procedures in the middle and inner ear, paranasal sinuses, and salivary glands, to endoscopic skull base surgery, to airway management, laryngectomy, thyroid surgery, and much more, the book is a practical reference for the busy surgeon. Special Features: The first complete, one-volume source on risks and complications in otology, rhinology, and head and neck surgery, Written by a team of leading worldwide authorities, who share tips, tricks, pearls, and clinical experience in every instructive chapter, Formatted for easy accessibility, including a definition of each complication and its sequelae, incidence of occurrence, point during surgery when it is most likely to happen, tips for avoiding it, and techniques for managing it. Includes current scientific, evidence-based information throughout. Generously illustrated, with more than 400 full-color, intraoperative photographs and endoscopic images to help readers visualize surgical problems and solutions for every case, including revision surgery. For the increasing number of ENT and neurosurgical teams who perform advanced endoscopic surgery of the anterior skull base beyond the paranasal sinuses, this book contains valuable information on complications not available elsewhere. It is essential reading for all surgeons who need to prepare for and manage every contingency for the best possible outcomes in otolaryngology and head and neck surgical procedures"-- Provided by publisher.

    "This textbook is the result of many conversations around the country in clinics, on hospital rounds, and at professional conferences. Patients with cranial neuropathy can be clinically challenging. Sometimes a missed diagnosis can be life threatening. Nowadays more and more payers, such as governments and insurance companies, are concerned with cost effectiveness of diagnostic and treatment steps. Therefore, physicians are often put in a challenging position between being good stewards of financial resources and being good providers of quality medical care. As the reader will observe in the subsequent chapters, cranial nerve issues are inherently complex and require expert clinical and radiographic evaluation. The primary aim of this textbook is to guide clinicians during these difficult situations"-- Provided by publisher.

    "The importance of unobstructed respiration in sleep, and the long-term risks of sleep apnea, cannot be overemphasized. The therapeutic efficacy of the widely prescribed "gold standard," continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), is compromised by low patient acceptance and compliance. In light of the limitations of CPAP and other forms of conservative therapy (e.g., mandibular advancement devices), there is a growing tendency to explore and expand the role of surgery in the treatment of mild, moderate, and severe sleep apnea. New insights and developments in pathophysiology, surgical techniques, and implants have opened the way to increased success in treating sleep apnea surgically. This new work by leading international specialists provides a detailed, evidence-based approach to selected advanced surgical techniques, beginning with patient selection criteria, discussion of indications for and against surgery, choice of procedure (also in combinations), and more. Key Features: - Systematic, practice-oriented approach to examination, diagnosis, and treatment - Step-by-step description of surgical concepts and techniques - Superbly illustrated with full-colored photographs and drawings - Focus on those procedures that have been shown to be successful in specific situations - Discussion of outcomes, success rates, risks, and potential complications; where evidence-based data are not available, expert opinion is provided Current Concepts of Sleep Apnea Surgery will be welcomed by residents, fellows, and board-certified surgeons in otorhinolaryngology and head and neck surgery"-- Provided by publisher.

    This text reviews the current understanding of vestibular anatomy allowing for a framework of reference, and how it's applied to vestibular testing, diagnosis and management of dizziness. Vestibular testing is an important tool in the evaluation and management of the patient with dizziness. It aids in establishing a diagnosis and determining the side or site of the lesion. In addition, it guides practitioners in selection of treatment and allows the ability of the patient’s condition to be evaluated over its time course. Common vestibular pathologies such as benign positional vertigo, Meniere’s disease, multisensory imbalance, vestibular neuritis, superior canal dehiscence, and vestibular migraine will be addressed in a concise and understandable manner. The text follows a clear format in which the etiology, pathophysiology, diagnostic features and medical or surgical management of such pathologies are discussed. The book gains increased importance as superior canal dehiscence and vestibular migraine are relatively new hot topics. Lastly, relatively rare entities such as bilateral vestibular hypofunction, pediatric vestibular disorders and central vestibular disorders are discussed. This text serves as a complete reference for clinicians, students and researchers interested in this common and severe disorder allowing for improved patient care and advancement of knowledge in the field. Chapters are written by acknowledged experts, allowing summary review of the newest and most up-to-date understanding of scientific information. Diagnosis and Treatment of Vestibular Disorders will be an invaluable resource for otolaryngologists, neurologists, otologists and neurotologists, basic science and translational researchers with interests in the vestibular system, fellows and residents in aforementioned fields, and general practitioners with an interest in patients with symptoms of dizziness.

    Disorders of the Neonatal Airway serves as a comprehensive, multidisciplinary resource for all practitioners who care for neonates with airway disorders. With the evolution of advances in neonatology and neonatal airway care over the past three decades, the survival rate and life expectancy of premature newborns have dramatically increased to well over 50% in 24-25 week gestation infants. Unfortunately, survival with long-term intubation has brought a corresponding increase in acquired airway disorders needing collaborative high level neonatal and otolaryngological care. Additionally, with the advent of fetal therapy, congenital airway disorders now make up a substantial number of neonates with complex airway disorders. Because of this fact, there has been increased focus on the multidisciplinary evaluation and management of neonatal airway disorders. The book is organized into three sections: the first focuses on Malformations and Deformations, the second focuses on Assessment, Evaluation, and Treatment, and the third discusses Education, Simulation, and Quality. As one of the only comprehensive resources on the topic, Disorders of the Neonatal Airway focuses on a multidisciplinary approach to the neonatal airway. This unique approach makes this reference a must read for practitioners from many disciplines.
