Basic Concepts in Head and Neck Surgery and Oncology is a comprehensive guide to the fundamentals of surgery for cancers of the head and neck, with emphasis on the diagnosis and management of specific types of tumour.
The book is divided into 34 chapters across seven sections, each section covering a different part of head and neck anatomy. Areas covered include thyroid, salivary glands andparapharyngeal tumours, neck, paranasal sinuses, oral cavity and oropharynx, larynx, hypopharynx and nasopharynx.
Each section is divided into pathology, imaging and practical management guidelines, simplifying difficult concepts with a coherent format. The final section on general topics addresses chemotherapy, radiotherapy, molecular biology, head and neck reconstruction, and recent advances in head and neck cancer, to ensure Basic Concepts in Head and Neck Surgery and Oncology isfully up to date.
Enhanced by nearly 200 full colour images and illustrations, this book is an essential source of reference for otolaryngologsists, oncologists, clinicians and medical students.
