The temporal bones are situated at the sides and base of the skull and support the temples. The relationship of the temporal bone structures is very complex and can be difficult for otologic surgeons to master.
Beginning with an introduction to surface anatomy and instruments used in temporal bone surgery, this concise guide describes common operations with emphasis on procedures, anatomy and surgical objectives.
The book includes more than 180 full colour digital photographs depicting every step of dissection, each with a detailed explanation and clear illustrations. Practical ‘points to remember’ assist trainees with learning and a DVD presenting different procedures is also included.
