About this book

Addressing disease of the frontal sinus successfully remains, perhaps, one of the most technically challenging issues encountered by otolaryngologists. The intricate anatomy, combined with a narrow aperture and relatively acute angle of approach, leads to complexity not encountered elsewhere in surgery of the sinuses. This comprehensive volume with contributions by over 30 of the world's leading rhinologists will help to shed light on this difficult topic. Thorough discussions of anatomy and pathophysiology of a variety of frontal sinus diseases provide a background for in-depth chapters on aspects of both medical and surgical management. A variety of surgical approaches are discussed, including the latest endoscopic techniques, as well as more traditional open and microscopic approaches. Heavily illustrated, this volume will be a "must have" for the rhinologist managing disease in the frontal sinus.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a marvelous book, a long-awaited and needed compendium on the frontal sinuses. … Almost all aspects from the history of frontal sinus surgery via embryology, anatomy, radiology, different surgical techniques, complications, image-guided approaches as well as external and combined techniques are described in the individual chapters. … For newcomers to this field it can be seen as an advantage that each chapter can be studied individually, as most present an entity in themselves." (H. Stammberger, European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology and Head & Neck, May, 2006)

"This book is a most up to date overview of the management of frontal sinus disease to which many leading authorities … contributed. The book aims at covering important aspects such as the anatomy of the frontal recess, radiology and endoscopic, but also eternal surgical techniques and chronic disease, complications and revision surgery. The lay-out of the book is very clear, with emphasis of important text in different colors, clear conclusions and core messages. Some chapters are really gems of knowledge and teaching." (W. J. Frokkens, European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology and Head & Neck, May, 2006)
