A state-of-the-art resource on head, neck, and skull base surgical procedures in children
Pediatric otolaryngology is a rapidly expanding field with remarkable technological advances that have improved the quality of life for young patients. Many highly complex pediatric head and neck procedures are not commonly performed, resulting in a paucity of resources. Atlas of Pediatric Head and Neck and Skull Base Surgery by renowned surgeons Dan M. Fliss, Ari DeRowe, and an impressive group of interdisciplinary innovators fills a gap in the literature. The richly illustrated atlas features a detailed discussion and guidance on groundbreaking surgeries developed and currently performed by top academic surgeons in the field, many of whom contributed to this book.
The introductory section lays a solid foundation of knowledge, with discussion of pediatric anatomy, distinctive topography of the skull base, anesthesia and pain control considerations, and imaging modalities. Fifty-four subsequent chapters encompass a rich spectrum of approaches and pediatric pathologies, organized by head and neck; skull base and craniofacial; airway, voice, and swallowing; trauma; and reconstruction sections. Surgical chapters include an introduction; evidence-based guidelines; preoperative, anesthetic, intraoperative and postoperative considerations; techniques and positioning; extensive references; and more.
- Concise, targeted descriptions of preoperative, perioperative, and postoperative considerations enhance the ability to deliver high-quality surgical care and achieve optimal outcomes
- Bulleted list of highlights at the end of each surgical chapter provide a quick reference
- Detailed, high-quality color illustrations and surgical photographs enhance understanding of impacted anatomy and techniques
This is an essential reference for otolaryngology, maxillofacial, plastic reconstructive, and neurosurgery residents, as well as for pediatric otolaryngology and head and neck fellows. Practicing head and neck surgeons and pediatric otolaryngologists will also find it beneficial.
