About this book

  This textbook is designed to deliver a comprehensive up-to-date review of all aspects of recurrent laryngeal nerve and superior laryngeal nerve anatomy including surgically important anatomy, key strategic surgical maneuvers, state-of-the-art neural monitoring, preservation of recurrent and superior laryngeal nerves during thyroidectomy and surgical management. Presently, there is no other single book available, that includes all of these surgically important topics explicitly and in-depth.  The book is visually oriented with color illustrations and  photomicrographs embracing all aspects of recurrent laryngeal nerve anatomy including branching patterns, relationship of the nerve and the inferior thyroid artery and the non-recurrent recurrent laryngeal nerve. A new classification system for recurrent laryngeal nerve anatomy is proposed.  Intraoperative neural monitoring of the nerves is also covered in detail along with new horizons and encompass a practical approach to neural monitoring right from set up, actual monitoring and clinical relevance and usefulness of the monitoring data in making surgical decisions.  The current status of the field is summarized and  placed in context with optimal surgical management of these nerves. All chapters are written by world class US and International experts in anatomy, surgery and nerve monitoring.       
The Recurrent and Superior Laryngeal Nerves will be of great value to Otolaryngologists and General Surgeons, Endocrine Surgeons, Fellows in Endocrine, Head and Neck Surgery, General Surgery and Otolaryngology residents.                  

About the authors

Gregory W. Randolph's name through his work over the last 20 years, has been associated with the recurrent laryngeal nerve and neural monitoring in thyroid surgery. He has established relationships with many of the key clinicians in this area, all of whom have preliminarily agreed and are excited to contribute on topics assigned to them. The name recognition and international backgrounds of the authors involved in this text is quite substantial.

Reviews

“The authors intend the book for endocrine surgeons, including otolaryngologists and general surgeons and fellows in endocrine surgery and head and neck surgery, as well as residents in otolaryngology and general surgery. Given the focused topic, those already experienced with thyroid surgery but interested in mastering this thyroid surgical endeavor will find it the most appealing. … The biggest strength of this book is the depth in which it addresses the topics.” (John Cramer, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2016)
