Overview

Sinonasal Surgery is part of the popular series Surgical Techniques in Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery. This volume is a practical guide for otolaryngologists providing an overview of the most common, and some of the more advanced procedures performed in nose and sinus surgery.

Edited by a team of recognised US based otolaryngologists, this authoritative atlas is unique in its scope. The book first outlines the basic principles of rhinologic practice, followed by sections on Inflammatory Sinus Disease, Adjunctive Surgical Procedures, Nasal Tumours and Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery. Each chapter presents an evidence-based approach to the development of each surgical procedure, and a description of the techniques, with intraoperative photographs and discussion on the benefits and pitfalls of each one.

Additional descriptions of newer surgical methods such as balloon dilation of the sinuses, endoscopic transodontoid approaches, and nasopharyngectomy, make Sinonasal Surgery an up-to-date, essential text for the practising otolaryngologist.
