The new third edition of Diagnosis and Treatment of Voice Disorders is the up-to-date and accessible reference for the range of professionals who care for patients with voice disorders. Over 60 well-known contributors provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to the characteristics of voice disorders, diagnostic procedures and techniques, and treatment models.
Each contributor, an expert of their respective field, conveys the complexities of the science of the human voice, and together they present current best practices in voice.
The book has been significantly revised and updated to cover advances in the science and medicine of voice disorders, including a substantial increase in coverage of the formation of the larynx; new insights provided by functional brain imaging; the musculoskeletal system in voice disorders; surgical diagnostic evaluation techniques; infant and pediatric voice disorders; drug effects, interaction and complications; laryngopharyngeal reflux and voice disorders; treatment options in non-surgical management; and extensively revised information on surgery for laryngeal cancer. In addition, new chapters have been added including: The Neurology of Stuttering, Transnasal Esophagoscopy; Diagnosis and Treatment of Pediatric Voice Disorders; Corticosteroid Use in Otolaryngology; The Effects of Posture on Voice; and management of Adult Onset Subglottic and Tracheal Stenosis.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michiel J. Bové, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive, multiauthored and multidisciplinary textbook covering the full range of laryngology, including both the scientific foundations and the clinical application.
Purpose: This book provides the reader with an up-to-date overview of the basic science, diagnosis, and treatment of voice and laryngologic disorders. It is also intended to stimulate current thought and research in the diverse fields of voice.
Audience: The intended audience includes the various professionals caring for patients with voice and laryngologic issues, including otolaryngologists, speech-language pathologists, voice and singing pedagogues, and students of each of these groups.
Features: Now in its third edition, this book maintains the format of the previous two editions and continues to provide a comprehensive and well illustrated overview of the field of laryngology. Its 48 chapters are divided into three broad units covering basic science, clinical assessment, and management. Some 75 authors have contributed to this edition, the names of most of which should be familiar to any reader with even a passing familiarity with the subject matter. Chapters have been updated from the previous edition - published a mere three years earlier - as warranted by recent advances in the field. To this end, while some chapters have undergone few changes from the previous edition (see Henick's Laryngeal Development), others have been substantially updated (see Laitman et al.'s Formation of the Larynx: From Hox Genes to Critical Periods). Similarly, Woodson's chapter on research in laryngology has been updated to reflect the latest perspective on upcoming trends. Several chapters are entirely new to the third edition. These include The Neurology of Stuttering, Transnasal Esophagoscopy, Corticosteroid Use in Otolaryngology and Management of Adult Onset Subglottic and Tracheal Stenosis. Nearly all aspects of the specialty are addressed separately, including some that are rarely touched upon in similar books. Included, for instance, is a chapter devoted to the nonlinear basis of dynamic voice disorders.
Assessment: This book provides a comprehensive, well written overview of modern laryngology in language that remains accessible to an interdisciplinary readership. It would serve well as an updated reference for nearly any professional serving the voice needs of patients.
David B. Conley
This multiauthored collection of chapters on disorders of the voice covers the full range of laryngology, including basic sciences, laryngeal disorders, laryngeal diagnosis, and management of voice disorders. The authors present the most current thinking in many diverse areas of voice disorder in this encyclopedic text. The purpose is to present the diverse field of voice disorders from basic science to diagnosis and treatment of vocal disorders in a single volume. The authors intend the book to be a current and fairly comprehensive reference for professionals involved in the study and treatment of voice disorders. The book is intended to stimulate current thought and research in the diverse fields of voice. These objectives are not only worthy but also timely, because this field has grown significantly in the past 10 years. On the whole, the authors meet these objectives. The audience includes otolaryngologists, basic scientists, speech-language pathologists, voice and singing pedagogues, and students of each of these groups. This is the appropriate audience for the book. The authors and many of the contributors are well-recognized authorities in their respective fields. The book is well illustrated, using an appropriate mix of black-and-white drawings, black-and-white photographs, and color photographs where appropriate. Photographic reproduction is generally of good to excellent quality. The references are very current and pertinent in almost all chapters. The overall appearance of the book is very attractive. The authors present a state-of-the-art encyclopedic collection of the broad range of basic science, diagnosis, and treatment of vocal disorders. The book will beuseful to the many researchers and practitioners involved in and related to this multidisciplinary specialty. The overall quality is excellent. Most chapters are very well written and address the material appropriately. The book is appropriate for individuals, medical school libraries, and departmental libraries.
A multi-authored compendium which delineates the growth of knowledge in the field of voice disorders, as a ready reference for professionals in the field, including otolaryngologists, basic scientists, speech-language pathologists, voice and singing padagogues, and students in these areas. The volume contains 36 chapters arranged in four parts: basic sciences; laryngeal disorders, laryngeal diagnosis, and management of voice disorders. Thoroughly and excellently illustrated in color and b&w. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
