Drs Anand and Schwartz collaborate with a team of expert contributing authors to produce a most timely book on endoscopic skull base surgery. Emphasizing the increasing importance of the neurosurgery-otolaryngology team approach, this new textbook describes the trends and critical aspects of this developing field, detailing current practice as well as those new procedures that represent the future of treatment of these lesions. Complete with full-color endoscopic views, x-rays, and reference charts throughout the text, this is a most resourceful publication for otolaryngologists, head and neck surgeons, and neurosurgeons.
