Diseases of the ears, nose and throat are amongst the most common presentations in primary care, and many patients are referred to ENT clinics in secondary care for further medical and surgical management. To help reduce these referrals this book guides readers through the basic anatomy and pathophysiology and then, for each presentation, provides: * an introduction which describes possible causes and the history required * a section on diagnosis, including which examinations and investigations to consider * management options, complications to look out for, and when to refer. This book offers practical guidance and so helps to fill the gap between ENT theory and the actual work experience. In addition to covering the common presentations, from allergic rhinitis to vertigo, via dysphagia and halitosis, the book also provides a description of the main investigations and covers the particular problems occurring in paediatric cases. This is the ideal clinical text for GPs, ENT trainees, medical students and nurse practitioners looking to manage common ENT conditions.
Bad breath is a common and embarrassing problem that everyone worries about, yet most health professionals still know little about its origins, diagnosis, and treatment. Over the past fifteen years, investigators have studied how bad breath is caused, where the odors originate, and which bacteria and gases are involved. Novel in vitro systems and measurement techniques have been proposed, and clinical studies conducted to compare new and traditional treatments. This illustrated text presents, for the first time, a comprehensive and cohesive science-based approach to bad breath, combining basic research with clinical approaches to diagnosis and treatment. All aspects of the subject are examined thoroughly and critically, including the psychological impact of breath odor and future prospects. The authors draw upon more than thirty years combined experience in this field, both in the laboratory and as consultants to thousands of patients in Canada, the US, the UK, and elsewhere.

This book not only seeks to explain TEES in detail to allay surgeons' concerns regarding this procedure, it also describes the recent advances such as the incorporation of powered instruments to extend the range of TEES; combining TEES with the latest techniques in regenerative medicine; taking advantage of the progress in computer technology such as 3D simulations and virtual reality and more. Innovations in Endoscopic Ear Surgery is designed to help smooth the learning curve for beginners as well as guide all readers onto the new paths which endoscopic ear surgery is embarking upon.
This book discusses the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of infections of the orbit and periorbital region and is written by experts in the fields of ophthalmology, oculoplastic surgery, otolaryngology, neurosurgery, and radiology. Infections of the orbit can be challenging to diagnose and manage. With the changing microbiology that has occurred over the years, as well as the introduction of new antibiotics, minimally invasive surgical approaches to the sinuses and orbits, and improved imaging techniques, it is often difficult for practitioners to stay current with the latest testing, medical treatments, and surgical approaches. Furthermore, as more ophthalmologists are joining hospital-based practices or managed care practices, they often feel uncomfortable when asked to manage these types of patients, either independently or in collaboration with other specialists such as ENT and neurosurgery. Even in many hospitals without ophthalmology coverage, where orbital cellulitis is cared for by otolaryngology and neurosurgery, these specialists also need to be current on the changing trends in managing orbital infections. Orbital Cellulitis and Periorbital Infections fills the need for a single-source reference for practitioners to turn to for comprehensive information regarding the diagnosis and management of orbital cellulitis. In this book, each chapter is in-depth, yet can also serve as a quick-reference guide. Orbital Cellulitis and Periorbital Infections is an excellent resource for those in training as well as seasoned practitioners who need to be updated on the newest diagnostic and treatment techniques for orbital cellulitis and periorbital infections.

This volume presents a novel logic-based, simplified understanding and approach to the external nose and face for aesthetics, airway, and sleep treatments that have mostly been under-recognized in the past. Key features of the text include an engineer's approach to simple rhinoplasty, (Release, Resize, Reposition, Reinforce) instead of the typical step-wise procedure algorithm. It also includes a logical explanation of how facial skeletal anatomy is the true cause of sleep apnea and aesthetic deformity with the physics and evidence of how this works, and a review of conventional rhinoplasty/facial structural treatments, with an analysis of why these are flawed and need improvement. Finally, rhinoplasty surgical strategy is discussed using a Rhinoplasty Compass(TM) diagram. Rethinking Rhinoplasty and Facial Surgery appeals to the surgeon who has grown frustrated with the aesthetic and breathing results of the conventional treatment paradigm. It also appeals to the otolaryngologist, plastic or oral surgeon who avoids working on the external nose and nasal valve because of the perceived complexity of graft-style rhinoplasty or oversimplicity and limitations of basic septoplasty and turbinate reduction. This book provides a hybrid approach to the nose and face that provides more reliable and straightforward outcomes via an understanding of framework.
