The goal of this textbook is to provide a substantive coverage of the fundamental aspects of otology. Although it is always difficult to determine the most appropriate scope of any textbook, a concerted effort to include pediatric otology in this textbook was considered a priority. The first 9 chapters include both pediatric and adult otology and are organized based on anatomic sub-sites. Each chapter includes a brief embryologic review, a more comprehensive anatomic review, and a discussion of pathologic disease processes. Although skull base surgery is certainly a complicated and expansive field, some of the basic principles and fundamental surgical techniques regarding skull base surgery are an important part of otology and are consequently included here in Chapter 9. Chapter 10 is a thorough review of common and uncommon systemic diseases focusing on their otologic manifestations. The subsequent chapter on radiology focuses on normal anatomy as seen on CT scans and MR images. Finally, Chapter 12, Surgical Procedures, is an overview of the common surgical procedures performed in the practice of otology as well as some of the essential skull base procedures. More than 550 coloured images and illustration describing step-by-step presentations of the principal of otological operations.

Given the wide-ranging nature of the literature one must study in plastic surgery training, a solid grounding in many fundamental principles and procedures is an absolute prerequisite to becoming a competent plastic surgeon. And yet, until now there has been no single source that collects these fundamental topics in one volume; rather, the information has had to be gleaned from the introductory chapters of multiple comprehensive textbooks. The present volume takes a new approach, and provides the trainee an opportunity to learn these fundamentals more efficiently and comprehensively through a single book. This work will prepare the trainee to confidently advance to the more specific core topics in reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery. Key Features: Highly efficient presentation and organization of all fundamental plastic surgical topics 21 chapters cover such topics as patient safety; normal and abnormal wound healing; local anesthesia and nerve blocks; soft tissue infections and antibiotics; implants and biomaterials; basic surgical techniques; grafting of fat, skin, bone, and other tissues; flaps; burns; and much more. Each chapter closes with a summary of key points. Ideal for all surgeons in training, Fundamental Topics in Plastic Surgery is a complete introduction to the science and technical expertise of aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery.
