Editorial 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)
