Endoscopic Sinus Surgery: Anatomy, Three-Dimensional Reconstruction, and Surgical Technique (4th Edition)Go to this book
As in the acclaimed prior editions, Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, Fourth Edition focuses strictly on anatomy, 3D reconstruction, and step-by-step surgical techniques. Written by Peter-John Wormald, the richly illustrated text details anatomy and operative treatment of sinonasal conditions such as nasal polyposis, chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS), Samter's triad, eosinophilic mucus CRS, exophthalmos, acute orbital hemorrhage, orbital subperiosteal abscess, and a wide array of tumors.
The fourth edition reflects simplified anatomical nomenclature published in 2016 by Wormald et al, including reclassification of cells in the frontal recess and the extent of surgery of frontal sinus surgery (EFSS). This enables clearer understanding of impacted anatomy, most notably the frontal sinus drainage pathways. New and revised evidence-based procedures include the mega-antrostomy and pre-lacrimal approach to the maxillary sinus and use of anterior based pedicled flaps for frontal drillout. Refinements in other surgical techniques include endoscopic medial maxillectomy and resection of sinonasal neoplasms.
Anatomy and surgical approaches elucidated through 1,000 images including CTs, illustrations, and diagrams
Exquisite dissections by Rowan Valentine, who worked in the anatomy laboratory of the late Albert L. Rhoton Jr., internationally renowned author, educator, brain anatomist, and neurosurgeon
Delineation of variations in frontal recess anatomy and difficult regions adjacent to the sinuses provides important surgical guidance
Seventy operative videos detail potential anatomical variations seen in the frontal sinuses, ancillary procedures such as DCR, orbital decompression, CSF leak closure, and skull base surgical approaches
This classic reference is a must-have for otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeons, as well as residents and fellows seeking a robust tutorial on the latest functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) techniques. It enables 3D understanding of diseased anatomy, associated surgical treatment decision making, and safer surgery.

The surgeon assumes responsibility for all factors that might influence the success of his or her craft, so a knowledge of potential complications is essential. Complications in Otolaryngology--Head and Neck Surgery fills an important gap in the field by examining complications in all areas related to otolaryngology and head and neck surgery (excluding facial plastic and aesthetic surgery). From procedures in the middle and inner ear, paranasal sinuses, and salivary glands, through endoscopic skull base surgery, to airway management, laryngectomy, thyroid surgery, and much more, this book is a practical reference for any surgeon.
A comprehensive guide to the risks and complications in otology, rhinology, and head and neck surgery
Written by a team of leading authorities from around the world, it presents the reader with a wealth of clinical experience in every instructive chapter
Formatted for easy accessibility, including a definition of each complication and its sequelae, the incidence of occurrence, the point during surgery when it is most likely to happen, tips for avoiding it, and techniques for managing it
Includes current scientific, evidence-based information throughout
More than 360 full-color intraoperative photographs, endoscopic images, and illustrations to help readers visualize surgical problems and solutions for every case, including revision surgery
This unique book is essential reading for all surgeons who need to prepare for and manage every contingency for the best possible outcomes in otolaryngology and head and neck surgery.
Endoscopic Sinus Surgery: Anatomy, Three-Dimensional Reconstruction, and Surgical Technique (3rd Edition)Go to this book
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.
