The anatomy of the temporal bone is one of the most complicated areas in the human body. The vital structures, the three-dimensional relationships involved, and the fact that these structures are hidden within bony canals make the anatomy difficult to grasp.Described as a dream come true by the authors, Professor Sanna and his colleagues have devoted a major effort to creating this book to serve as a guide for young trainees wanting to learn more about temporal bone dissection. It provides comprehensive, high-quality, full-color pictures of the detailed steps of all the major surgical approaches that can be performed in the temporal bone, supplemented by images of cadaveric dissections as an aid to understanding the intracranial anatomy when indicated by the approach.Dr. Sanna is part of The Grupppo Otologico, a world-renowned specialist center for the diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment of diseases of the ear, skull base, facial nerve, head and neck, and paranasal sinuses.
