There is a nice consistent style...which makes for very easy reading and not just dipping in at random...The brief, punchy style of this book is highly recommended to all trainees and, at least as much, to their trainers. -- The Journal of Laryngology & Otology In the tradition of the acclaimed first edition, experts from the University of Cincinnati's Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery present new case reviews. Every chapter presents patient-based scenarios to prepare practitioners for ENT cases they will encounter during rounds, rotations, and patient exams. By establishing a uniform algorithm in obtaining and utilizing discreet points of data, the authors encourage a disciplined approach to patient assessment and management options. Sections organized by anatomy and subspecialty enhance the ability to learn and retain knowledge. For example, benign and malignant pathologies are systematically detailed in anatomical sections dedicated to the neurovascular structures, oral cavity and pharynx, larynx, thyroid, salivary gland, and skin. The text covers the full age continuum - including congenital, acquired, benign, and malignant disorders such as pediatric subglottic stenosis and facial, head, and neck cancers that primarily affect adults. Key Highlights Presentation of 100 practical cases including history, differential diagnoses, test interpretations, definitive diagnoses, medical and surgical management, rehabilitation, and follow-up. Up-to-date coverage of every major ENT specialty: otology and neurotology, the skull base, rhinology, laryngology, head and neck cancer, sleep disorders, pediatric otolaryngology, trauma, and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Nearly 150 meticulous color photographs and graphics elucidate disease characteristics and clinical findings Chapter bibliographies with current literature sources augment case reviews. Multiple-choice questions serve as a robust study tool, optimizing knowledge acquisition and retention. This must-have resource enables otolaryngology residents and practitioners to learn from case studies and incorporate state-of-the-art techniques into daily practice, thereby optimizing patient care.

Ear, nose, and throat diseases present and progress very differently in children than in adults, needing different diagnostic and treatment strategies. Training in the subspecialty of pediatric otolaryngology is often part of a general ENT program and not a program in itself. As such, the general otolaryngologist may be insufficiently prepared to handle certain pediatric cases. R.W. Clarke's Pediatric Otolaryngology: Practical Clinical Management aims to provide the pediatric ENT resident or fellow, as well as the general ENT practitioner, with sound clinical guidance on ENT pathologies as th.

Manual of Allergy and Clinical Immunology for Otolaryngologists presents the most up-to-date knowledge related to allergy and immunology directed towards the unique needs of otolaryngologists. Many of the clinical conditions treated by otolaryngologists have an allergic or immunologic pathogenesis, including sinusitis, rhinitis and otitis, and otolaryngologists are often required to use allergic methodology in treating these problems. This book is a resource to which physicians can refer to help them manage allergic aspects of common ENT problems and their diagnosis and management.The book begins with an introduction to the fundamental immunologic processes necessary to understand allergic mechanism and diseases and goes on to include food and drug allergies, anaphalaxsis, immune deficiencies, occupational allergic diseases, and tumor immunology, among other topics. Otolaryngologists across all specialties as well as residents will benefit from the current information that focuses on the most important aspects of each topic in a concise, easy to reference format. **From the Foreword: "The fields of allergy, immunology, and otolaryngology are inextricably linked.Immunologic dysregulation is recognized to be the underpinning of a wide variety of diseases of the head and neck, and on a daily basis the practicing otolaryngologist must draw upon principles of allergy and immunology in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. For example, it is a rare patient presenting with a sinonasal complaint in whom consideration of allergic etiologies is not relevant. The otolaryngologist must also have a strong understanding of autoimmune illnesses to recognize the unique array of potential head and neck manifestations associated with autoimmune disease. Equally important, a deeper understanding of immunopathology may be the key to unlocking the mechanisms of major diseases ranging from chronic rhinosinusitis to head and neck cancer. Thus it is imperative for the otolaryngologist to master principles of allergy and immunology in order to provide optimal patient care. The body of knowledge encompassed by allergy and immunology is rapidly evolving and expanding, posing a great challenge for otolaryngologists seeking to keep up with diagnostic and treatment advances in the field.This splendid textbook offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary encapsulation of contemporary allergy and immunology for the otolaryngologist. Drs. Rosenstreich, Fried, de Vos and Jackman have assembled an illustrious group of authors who have managed to distill the essentials of allergy and immunology for the otolaryngologist without sacrificing scientific content or detail. The reader will appreciate clear elucidation of basic science concepts and the practical translation of basic science principles to the clinical management of otolaryngologic illnesses. Diagnostic and treatment guidelines are presented with a comprehensive and pragmatic approach. This book is essential reading for all otolaryngologists, from trainees looking to grasp the breadth of overlap between otolaryngology and allergy/immunology, to seasoned otolaryngologists seeking to update their fund of knowledge with the latest developments in immunophysiology and clinical treatment. The knowledge gained from this expertly edited volume will benefit our patients tremendously." --Peter H.Hwang, MD, Professor and Chief, Division of Rhinology and Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery, Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, Stanford University School of Medicine.

Modern Hearing Aids: Verification, Outcome Measures, and Follow-Up focuses on the selection and fitting of hearing aids and the outcome procedures and measures that follow. The world-renowned authors provide guidance for selecting prescriptive fitting approaches and detailed protocols for the use of behavioral measures and real-ear speech mapping to both verify the fitting and assess special hearing aid features. Extensive discussion is included regarding the techniques, procedures, and test protocols for probe-microphone measures. The authors have included numerous postfitting tests that can be conducted along with step-by-step protocols for their administration and scoring. Follow-up care and auditory training options also are reviewed.Written in an accessible and easy-to-read style, this text includes not only reference information, but also tools supported by research and clinical experience. The information is presented in a way that is both accessible to clinical students with little experience in the field and with enough depth for even the serious hearing aid researcher.Key features include:*Brief paragraphs identified as "Technical Tips, " "Key Concepts, " "Things to Remember, " "Points to Ponder, " and "Soapbox" for quick reference*"Endnotes" at the back of the book--interesting tidbits of information not quite relevant enough to include in the chapters, but too good to toss aside*Humor infused throughout.
