Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James N. Palmer, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is the first comprehensive text that attempts to address the particular problems and challenges associated with recurrent otologic disease. The authors cover the material in two ways: the text manages to be a focused surgical atlas with descriptions and a series of review articles of the individual otologic topics.
Purpose: The authors state their purpose is to delineate an approach to patients with recurrent or recalcitrant otologic/neurologic disease. They do so by asking questions about possible prevention of disease and surgery needed to create a cure. Clearly, this objective is worthy and difficult to accomplish. Through use of individual chapters dealing exclusively with subsets of recurrent otologic disease, the authors have fulfilled their goal. However, the text does not flow between chapters and diseases, and the format forces the reader to evaluate redundant passages.
Audience: The intended audience is practicing otolaryngologists and residents in otolaryngology, with a goal of providing as much guidance as possible in dealing with recurrent disease. Using a stable of highly experienced otologic surgeons to review the topic, the authors meet their objectives. The illustrations are first-rate, almost the quality of an operative atlas. Fully referenced with up-to-date citations, many of them the authors' own, the text truly manages to provide a complete survey of each subject.
Features: This book functions as a combined operative atlas and review of the vast area of otologic/neurologic surgery. It ranges from stapedectomy and ossicular reconstruction to the first discussion of reoperative surgery for acoustic neuroma. It therefore has great value to the practicing otologist and resident challenged with these clinical entities. However, it does have some redundant sections because of its individual disease format, and its illustrations, though excellent, cannot stand alone. The reader, unless highly versed in temporal bone anatomy, will be forced to refer to a more comprehensive atlas.
Assessment: In total, the text quite ably fulfills its stated goal of providing a means to direct patient management of a difficult clinical area, and as such is a must for otologists.
