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.

Middle ear surgery is a common ear surgery. During this surgery, the chorda tympani nerve which carries taste sensation from the anterior two third of the tongue, is encountered. The nerve is likely to sustain injury, ranging from being stretched to being cut. Though the nerve is injured, most of the patients following middle ear surgery do not complain of any taste disturbances. The only few, who are symptomatic, recover their taste sensation after a certain period of time. This study was carried out to assess the frequency of taste disturbance following middle ear surgery, their recovery with time and the reason explaining why post middle ear surgery the taste sensation is usually not altered inspite of the nerve being injured.
New techniques for preoperative risk assessment in liver surgery are presented in this work. Thereby, the determination of safety margins around tumors is addressed which is a challenging task for surgeons. Besides a method to define safety margins with uniform width, a method to define non-uniform safety margins is proposed while considering robustness and sensitivity of vascular risk. In addition, techniques for intraoperative support of liver interventions are introduced. First, the intraoperative adaptation of surgical planning data is focused. Second, new visualization techniques, i.e. surgical risk maps and an approach for illustrative augmented reality are presented. The developed visualization techniques provide a new and objective basis for the assessment of risks during liver surgery. Third, new techniques for auditory support for navigated liver surgery are introduced.
Endoscopic surgery is carried out without any direct visual contact with the operation area.The surgeon will perform operations by just looking on the monitor screen of the computer.The operation area is displayed on a monitor for visual feedback.During the course of an operation,image quality may be low due to degradations of the endoscopic images.The goal of our research is to enhance the endoscopic image by using total variation texture enhanced image decomposition technique.Several papers address the topics highlight detection and substitution of missing image data,but we do not know of any research group working on general endoscopic image enhancement. In this book we describe the texture enhanced histogram equalization method to enhance endoscopic images.
Surgery for salivary glands is a demanding and exacting speciality. Decisions regarding the requirement of surgical intervention, the essentially needed diagnostic aids, and the nature and extent of surgery required are of utmost importance. Failure to appreciate the importance of conservative surgery may have profound implications on the patient’s esthetics, functions and quality of life. This may, however, be unavoidable to a great extent in the case of surgical intervention for malignant neoplasms, where radical surgery is indicated, especially given the largely radio resistant nature of salivary gland neoplasms. A thorough knowledge of both established and recent approaches is therefore absolutely essential for a successful practice of surgery. So this book basically aims at reviewing the newer surgical as well as endoscopic approaches to salivary glands which have resulted in lesser extensive surgeries, fewer functional problems and less conspicuous scars.
