While atlases of endoscopic sinus surgery are numerous, there is a serious knowledge gap created by the lack of a comprehensive, up-to-date atlas dedicated to office diagnostic nasal endoscopy. The first and only such atlas, written in German and translated in 1978, is sadly out of date. Filling this gap, An Atlas of Diagnostic Nasal Endoscopy illustrates all variants of normal intranasal anatomy and pathologies seen through nasal endoscopy.
Developed by an author with more than fifteen years of experience, the book features more than 600 pictures of normal and abnormal findings of nasal endoscopy. Captioned with arrows and legends, each photograph provides a clear and independent teaching message. This format allows the reader to easily find the information they need without wading through information they don't. The author also supplies clear, concise expository text that provides background information for each chapter.
The user friendly format and comprehensive coverage of the normal variants of intranasal anatomy and the many abnormal pathologies encountered in clinical practice make An Atlas of Diagnostic Nasal Endoscopy an important resource for all trainees, practitioners, and teachers of otolaryngology, and practitioners and specialists interested in sinus disorders.
