Surgical Approaches in Otorhinolaryngology

Front Cover
Thieme, 1999 - Head - 362 pages

The usual surgical approaches to the head and neck region are overviewed. Subdivisions were made according to the anatomical regions and their functional correlations. The approaches are explained in a short introductory text. Their execution and indications as well as possible extensions are included. Emphasis is put on the illustrative plastic images showing the approaches in 4-colored figures. These were drawn after anatomical specimens and intrasurgical findings, therefore representing the actual anatomical situation. This is not a comprehensive textbook of surgical procedures but a clear representation of surgical approaches to the different topographical regions.
