Increasingly used as an adjunctive tool in the diagnosis and management of ear disease, middle ear endoscopy has the potential to decrease patient morbidity, prevent disease recurrence, and reduce costs. Its capacity to uncover hidden anatomy within the small dimensions of the ear has made it essential for functional surgery, allowing surgeons to preserve key anatomic structures such as the cochlea and facial nerve.Now for the first time, the physicians who pioneered this groundbreaking minimally invasive technique review its indications, advantages, disadvantages, and surgical approaches: Written by the foremost leaders in the field, all members of the International Working Group on Endoscopic Ear SurgeryFeatures nearly 1,000 intraoperative endoscopic images filmed with high-definition cameras, plus outstanding line drawings that aid in understanding all concepts Comprehensively covers the field, including chapters on endoscopic and combined endoscopic-microscopic management of cholesteatoma, surgical restoration of middle ear ventilation, myringoplasty, Meniere disease, tympanoplasty and stapes surgery, revision surgery, and much more Demonstrates state-of-the-art endoscopic procedures in 19 instructive videos From the unique anatomy and pathophysiology of the middle ear through diagnosis, surgical indications, procedures, and instrumentation, this book is indispensable for all otolaryngologists and neurotologists. It offers a full picture of the field today, as well as exploring the future possibilities of ear endoscopes alone or in combination with operative microscopes for the most effective treatment of middle ear pathologies.

After one century of breast cancer surgery, patients’ management has evolved from radical mutilating surgery to more conservative approach. With breast conserving techniques such as lumpectomy, quadrantectomy, skin-sparing mastectomy (SSM), skin-reducing mastectomy (SRM), total skin-sparing mastectomy, nipple-areola sparing mastectomy (NSM) and with increasing indications of prophylactic risk-reducing mastectomy "personalized oncology treatment" is becoming the norm. Achieving an aesthetically pleasing outcome is becoming as critical as local disease control. Oncoplastic breast surgery is thus becoming the new frontier of breast cancer treatment and is being defined as a ‘‘third pathway’’ between standard breast conserving surgery (BCS) and total mastectomy. Though a well-trained oncologic surgeon may be capable of performing simple level 1 oncoplastic surgical procedures, more complex techniques of reconstruction with contralateral symmetrisation necessitate the skills and expertise of a plastic and reconstructive surgeon. The authors of this book share their concepts and experience with the newly evolving various mastectomy and reconstructive procedures.

How are the operative procedures performed?Covers the latest techniques for removal of skull base tumors and repair of skull base defects Includes new chapters on pathophysiology of rhinosinusitis, sense of smell, applied anatomy, the endoscopically assisted bimanual operating technique (developed by the author), transorbital surgery, interdisciplinary teamwork, and more Offers online access to 18 videos of endoscopically guided surgical procedures and patient interviews, for an excellent review and refresherFrom diagnosis and preoperative counseling to evidence-based procedures, complication avoidance, and postoperative management, this book covers the gamut of topics clinicians face in everyday practice. All otolaryngologists, neurosurgeons, and maxillofacial surgeons will find it essential when making diagnostic and treatment decisions involving the skull base and paranasal sinuses.
Nephron sparing surgery for renal tumors is a procedure that entails complete local resection of a renal tumor while leaving the largest possible amount of normal functioning parenchyma in the involved kidney. in the past it was only employed in cases with absolute indications, now its indications are increasing, not only to cases with relative indications, but also to elective indications. This book contains a review of literature for nephron sparing surgery for renal tumors, including its advantages and disadvantages, indications and contraindications, preparation for it, its different techniques, its results, complications and follow-up protocols after performing it, besides a review to applied renal anatomy and a review to the experience of the National Cancer Institute,Cairo University, Egypt in ten years with this procedure.

Excellent surgical books are available today. Most of them are large and well illustrated, written by excellent authors across countries and continents and describe different problems of modern surgery. This book in particular reflects common surgical conditions of the Thyroid, Upper Gastrointestinal, and the Chest. More emphasis is placed on epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnostics and principles of management of the diseases of these areas. The summarized information in this book is very useful for medical students, general medical practitioners and surgeons. Further, this book has described the general principles of surgical techniques, leaving the more detailed description of techniques for readers to find in the standard textbooks. Readers of this book will have an opportunity to quickly review contents and find possible solution to the problem at hand. Lastly, this book has provided description of all modern evidence based surgical management, with an understanding that absence of technological advances in developing countries doesn't preclude from getting appropriate up to date knowledge on surgical techniques. Readers are wished all the best.
Chronic suppurative otitis media is an important middle ear disease since prehistoric times. CSOM is the commonest cause of persistent mild to moderate hearing impairment in children and young adults in developing countries.The tympanic membrane perforation that does not heal spontaneously represents an anatomical and functional defect that needs surgical correction in the majority of cases in order to allow the patient to have a normal social life with no restrictions and to correct the hearing loss resulting from the perforation. Tympanoplasty is the surgical operation performed for the reconstruction of the tympanic membrane and/or the small bones of the middle ear (ossicles). Over the years many techniques have been adopted for tympanoplasty. This book is intended to help medical students to clear their concepts regarding the anatomy and physiology of the conductive mechanism of ear. And also for the ENT surgeons to learn the basics of the evolving technique of ENDOSCOPIC TYMPANOPLASTY.
Normal esophageal motility is dependant on intact neural control mechanisms and normal function of the esophageal muscle. Motor disorders present when defects in the neuromuscular apparatus are present. Motor disorders can be primarily focused in the esophagus or secondary related to a systemic disease and can affect specific regions of the esophagus or multiple regions. The most distinctive as well as the longest recognized and best understood motor disease of the esophagus is achalasia. This prospective randomized study is planned aiming to evaluate the results of the different techniques of treatment of achalasia, either pneumatic balloon or surgery (open – laparoscopic).

The frontal sinus has been recognized as a problem since Ambrose Pare first described a white sticky substance oozing from it during skull trephination in 1564. Although Lettre originally described frontal sinus trephine in 1704, Ogston reported the first external surgical procedure on the frontal sinus in 1884. Since then, there have been a myriad of frontal sinus procedures developed to deal with chronic frontal sinusitis. Over the last decade, functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) has been accepted as the procedure of choice for the surgical management of chronic sinusitis. Because of the complex anatomy of the frontal recess, endoscopic intranasal approaches to this region continue to be an area of controversy. Of all the paranasal sinuses, endoscopic surgery of the frontal sinus is the most difficult and challenging. In this book titled 'Frontal Sinus Surgery: Predictive Factors of Surgical Outcome', patients with frontal sinus disease were studied at our hospital with respect to their clinical features, management, complications and follow-up. They were studied over a period of two years with an aim to identify factors that can help us predict the outcome of surgery.
