"Wonderfully illustrated...sets the bar quite high...recommended for any
surgeon considering middle ear and mastoid surgery."
-- Otology and Neurotology
(of the first edition)

Based on more than 30 years' experience and over 20,000 clinical cases,
the second edition of Middle Ear and Mastoid Microsurgery presents detailed surgical management strategies for the full spectrum of
otologic disorders, from decision-making and preoperative considerations to
descriptions of both common and complex surgical techniques. The superb schematic
drawings and intraoperative images, combined with instructional text, facilitate an
in-depth understanding of surgical anatomy and operative steps that is
unparalleled in the literature.

New to the second edition of this landmark text:
  • Now over 1,600 vivid, full-color
    intraoperative images,
    many newly obtained with digital cameras, that take readers through the operative
    procedures in highly detailed step-by-step sequences

  • Expanded chapter
    on temporal bone anatomy, with dissection images correlated to CT scans
    that are crucial for a full understanding of surgical middle ear anatomy and 3D
    relationships between important structures 

  • Updated chapter on paragangliomas, offering proven
    surgical solutions to this difficult pathology
    according to the authors' modified classification

  • Revised chapter on subtotal petrosectomy, with
    treatments for intractable otorrhea in dead ears and other severe
    pathologies such as extensive Jiquorrhea and meningoencephalic herniation

  • Updated coverage of the remarkable advances in cochlear implant
    technology for profound sensorineural hearing loss

Complete with general operating room principles,
anesthesia, and technical considerations, plus guidance on pitfalls, problems
and potential complications, this comprehensive book is an
in-depth review of modern middle ear surgery. From temporal bone anatomy to canalplasty
to the most advanced surgical techniques, it sets the standard as the authoritative reference for all otologic surgeons at all levels of training.
