This book describes an exciting new movement using regenerative medicine to treat patients with otolaryngological diseases. The emerging field of regenerative medicine uses tissue engineering, which combines medicine and engineering not only to treat the diseases themselves but also to enable recovery of the function of affected areas. As otolaryngology covers wide regions, including many diseases of the head and neck, the book is divided into sections, each corresponding to a different anatomical structure - the ear, nose, oral cavity, pharynx, larynx and head and neck. The structural developments of each region, the underlying mechanisms of diseases specific to these regions, their experimental models and proposals for new regenerative treatment are all discussed in detail. The various diseases and symptoms considered in the book include inner ear and middle ear diseases, rhinitis, nasal sinusitis and otolaryngological cancers. To date there have been few clinical studies reporting regenerative medical applications in the field of otolaryngology, but in this volume leading authors present the latest research findings to help provide new therapies for patients in the future. This state-of-the-art information makes the book a valuable professional reference work for all doctors and researchers who focus on regenerative treatments in the field of otolaryngology and neuroscience.
