Head and Neck Anatomy: A Clinical Reference

Overview

The head and neck is a region especially complex in structure, containing some of the most important organs as well as major nerves and blood vessels. An understanding of local anatomy is fundamental to a wide variety of medical and surgical specialties, many of which have recently evolved some of the most demanding techniques in microsurgery: these include new approaches to the temporomandibular joint, skull base and facial nerve, and the brain itself.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sandra E. Inouye, PhD (Midwestern University)
Description: This beautiful, well-illustrated head and neck anatomy book is a hybrid of a clinical anatomy textbook and a high-quality photographic atlas.
Purpose: The authors have designed their book to adapt to the recent changes in the undergraduate medical curriculum and the requirements of postgraduate medical training. Many anatomy textbooks have been simplified and generalized to reflect the fundamental changes in anatomy teaching and undergraduate medical curricula at numerous schools. However, with increasing specialization at the postgraduate level of medical education, there is a need for books that give more detailed coverage of specific regions of the body. In addition, head and neck anatomy is particularly complex and is a region that concerns a number of medical specializations. The authors have successfully written their book with these needs in mind.
Audience: The authors have written the book for clinicians at the postgraduate level of medical education. However, because it is simply written and so well illustrated, it is certainly a nice supplementary text for undergraduate medical students as well. This is a book that medical students could use in their anatomy class and keep for reference in their later years of postgraduate training. The authors are authorities on the subject: Barry Berkovitz is a reader in special dental anatomy at King's College, London, and Bernard Moxham is a professor and head of the anatomy unit at University of Wales, Cardiff.
Features: The book covers all of the typically important areas of head and neck anatomy in well-illustrated detail. It combines short paragraphs of text, tables, and numerous color photographs. The highlights are the superb photographs and the accompanying legends. The authors strike the proper balance of the need for photographic illustration, the number of photographs used, and the amount of detail indicated on each. In this way, the photographs are easy to interpret, highlight the points of the text, and avoid confusion that many other books produce by excessive labeling of fewer figures. Another plus of the book is that it is printed on heavy, high-quality paper — similar to many photographic atlases.
Assessment: This is a well-designed book on a complex subject. The depth of the content and quality of photographic illustrations surpasses many of its competitors. It is one of the best head and neck anatomy textbooks on the market and would be a welcome addition to any clinician's or anatomist's library.
