This single volume surgical atlas-like book contains precise descriptions of modern surgical techniques in rhinology and sleep apnea surgery. Chapters are contributed by surgeons with extensive experience, who have already published on the specific procedure described. Each chapter contains diagrammatic or illustrative descriptions of surgical techniques, and provides tips for avoiding complications when the procedures are performed. This comprehensive work serves as a valuable resource for otolaryngologists in training to augment their surgical education and for practicing otolaryngologists as a review source to best approach the surgical pathologies they encounter in their practice of rhinology and treatment of sleep apnea.

From the reviews:"The primary intention of this book is to provide surgeons with an update in these two areas, regarding new instrumentation and surgical techniques. . The book appears to be written for general otolaryngologists . . It may also be useful for residents in training as an atlas . . The authors represent a wide spectrum of experts from multiple international institutions." (Rakesh K Chandra, Doody's Review Service, August, 2007)"The book is devoted to rhinology (Chaps. 1-25) and to sleep apnea (Chaps. 26-48) . . Very numerous and excellent drawings and pictures have been selected to make difficult anatomy or surgical techniques accessible to the reader showing that the book has been carefully planned to address residents and trainees, as well as specialists. . it is a comprehensive update of current surgical techniques written by experts in their field, and therefore it is a must in a specialist's library."
