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."
