Endoscopic Sinus Surgery: Anatomy, Three-Dimensional Reconstruction, and Surgical Technique

Overview

Praise for this book:
This book is an invaluable educational resource for rhinologists not only in training but those well established in practice too. It is one of the few books that I found so well written that I could pick it up and read it with enthusiasm from cover to cover. It is excellent value for money as well as one of the most comprehensive and easy to read sinus surgery texts available. - - ENT &  Audiology News

This updated and expanded third edition of Endoscopic Sinus Surgery provides detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to perform state-of-the-art surgical techniques on the paranasal sinuses and skull base. It extensively describes the anatomy of all regions within the sinuses and adjacent intracranial cavities and includes unique, practical guidance on using CT scans to reconstruct 3D images of surgical anatomy. Access to more than 40 videos, available on Thieme's MediaCenter and illustrating the anatomy and surgical steps for all procedures, is provided via a scratch-off page in the book.

Features of the third edition:

  • Three entirely new chapters on anatomy of the sphenoid, surgery of the craniocervical junction, and management of carotid artery and other major vessel injury
  • More than 150 new high-quality dissection photos help clarify complex techniques throughout the book
  • Online access to more than 40 operative videos demonstrating surgical techniques

This operative manual is an essential reference for otolaryngologists and skull base surgeons who need a refresher on a surgical procedure as well as residents and fellows seeking guidance on the latest endoscopic techniques for the sinuses and skull base.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rakesh K Chandra, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is an augmented surgical atlas for core techniques in modern functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS). It is more than just a "how to," because it emphasizes building the surgeon's 3-dimensional conceptualization of an anatomically based surgical dissection. The first edition was awarded Best ENT Book of 2005 by the British Medical Association.
Purpose: The unique purpose of this book is to promote application of 2-dimensional endoscopic views to surgery in potentially complex 3-dimensional anatomic spaces. As alluded to in the preface, this is a necessary objective as endoscopic techniques continue to be extended beyond the paranasal sinuses. Systematic approaches are indeed necessary to apply minimally invasive techniques to the infratemporal fossa, parapharyngeal space, and intracranial structures.
Audience: The book would be appropriate for endoscopic surgeons-in-training, as well as accomplished FESS surgeons who seek to broaden their skills to include skull base techniques and to manage conditions beyond chronic rhinosinusitis. The author is one of the world's foremost experts in both of these pursuits.
Features: Initial chapters share critical details regarding the salient features of presurgical planning, such as room set-up and preparing the surgical field. This is followed by chapters organized by anatomic site and surgical technique. Dr. Wormald has an innovative method of using block modeling to build the surgeon's mental 3-D perspective, and this is clearly correlated with real endoscopic anatomy as well as CT in all three axes. The illustrations (in the text and on the DVD) are of remarkable quality, and each concisely relates the point at hand. As acknowledged by the author, the book avoids in-depth discussion of pathophysiology, although that may have been helpful at various junctures to further explain the rationale for the chosen technique.
Assessment: This atlas is the gold standard for the current state of endoscopic sinonasal techniques. Increased attention to endoscopic techniques beyond the paranasal sinuses, as well as additional videos and illustrations, help to maximize the proliferation of minimally invasive techniques so they may be applied to complex clinical scenarios.
