Abstract

Management of paranasal sinus disorders is not only a test of knowledge but it is also an art form. Great progress has been made on endoscopic sinus surgery in recent decades and this technique lets us look into the remote corners of sinuses. However, we still have a lot of challenging issues. The only way to solve these problems is to face them. Based on these concepts, this book incorporates new clinical and research developments as well as future perspectives in the ever-expanding field of rhinology. The book is a comprehensive reference for ENT residents and practicing otolaryngologists who wish to expand their expertise, develop a broader armamentarium of techniques, and successfully manage their patients with sinonasal disorders.

Abstract

The main objective of this volume is to diffuse the latest information related to hearing loss, which is among the most prevalent chronic disabilities worldwide. Nowadays, it is clear that the identification and rehabilitation of hearing impairment, when possible, have to be adequately and promptly managed because hearing loss can seriously interfere with psychosocial development, family dynamics, and social interactions. This book has been edited with a strong educational perspective (all chapters include an extensive introduction to their corresponding topic and an extensive glossary of terms). This book contains various materials suitable for graduate students in audiology, ENT, hearing science, and neurosciences.

Abstract

This book emphasizes on five different sections of rhinology, namely, 'Surgical Anatomy', 'Dental-Related Diseases', 'Radiological Imaging', 'Nasal Spaces' and 'Surgical Training'. It incorporates new clinical and research developments as well as future perspectives in the ever-expanding field of rhinology. I dedicate this book to those of you who pick up the torch and by continued research, close clinical observation and the high quality of clinical care as well as publication and selfless teaching, further advance knowledge in rhinology from this point forward. This is intended to be a guide for other books to follow. General otolaryngologist, rhinologist, researchers, specialists, trainees and general practitioners with interest in otolaryngology will find this book useful and interesting.

Contemporary practices of functional assessment of swallowing and the endoscopic assessment for both oropharyngeal and esophageal dysphagia are reviewed. Both the nutritional support and decision making in oral route are described and the impact of dysphagia on carers and family when managing dysphagia.

Abstract

Dizziness and vertigo are symptoms related to peripheral vestibular disorders. These are among the most common complaints in medical offices, and knowledge of the major diseases affecting this system is of fundamental importance to the specialist in otolaryngology. In recent years, great advances have been made in otoneurology, which, coupled with increasing knowledge in the field of neurosciences, have substantially modified the approach of the patient with balance complaints. This book studies the most polemic of these vestibular diseases, the Meniere's disease.
