Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The authors have made great contributions to the field and provide current, comprehensive, and extremely lucid chapters..I believe this text will be useful for general otolaryngologists, primary care physicians, and audiologists..well-written and very practical.' —Chicago Medicine
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James N. Palmer, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book on hearing loss is divided into nine chapters, three of which provide the main thrust of the book. Chapters 5, 6, and 7 discuss pathological conditions affecting the ear, and therefore are the core of the text. Chapters1 through 4 present an erudite discussion of the anatomy and physiology of the auditory and vestibular system, including descriptions of the methods of clinical testing. The book finishes by focusing on rehabilitation of the patient with loss of auditory or vestibular function in which surgery or medications are not available for treatinent.
Purpose: This book attempts to provide a basic, comprehensive, and contemporary text that reviews all aspects of otologic and neurotologic disease.
Audience: It will be useful to general otolaryngologists and resident otolaryngologists in total. As a reference, it will have value for family practitioners, internists, and audiologists, especially with respect to critical presentation of disease.
Features: The obvious highlights of the book include chapters 5, 6, and 7. The three editors authored the chapters together. As leaders in the field, the authors give a concise review of clinical presentations without overlap between chapters. These chapters might stand alone as worthy of reading by the internist, leaving the rest of the text as a reference. However, it is difficult for an otologic text to serve specialists and continue to be useful to a wide population. This book attempts to deal with this difficulty by concentrating on diagnosis and presentation of disease, and less on treatment. The authors give sparse descriptions of surgical treatment, and therefore referral to a surgical atlas is required. There is also a notable lack of clinical photographs to correlate to the excellent disease descriptions included in the text.
Assessment: In comparison with other otologic texts, many have more exhaustive reviews of disease. The obvious comparisons include Surgery of the Ear, edited by Glasscock and Shambaugh, and Otologic Surgery, edited by Brackmann, Shelton, and Arriga. Hearing Loss emphasizes clinical presentation and tests included in disease work-up; it therefore has a different focus from its companions, which discuss surgical therapeutics at length. The basic science and diagnostic tests of otology and neurotology are advancing at a rapid rate, faster than a tome discussing clinical entities and surgical therapeutics can match. This book solves this dilemma by focusing on diagnosis and testing , making it a contemporary text of special value to the generalist who will refer the patient for surgery.
