Review quote

From the reviews: "This multidisciplinary surgical atlas describes endoscopic approaches for selected skull base pathologies and provides a framework for applying these techniques by detailing important considerations such as room set-up, patient positioning, and instrument selection. ... It is primarily written for experienced neurosurgeons, endoscopic sinus surgeons, and/or head and neck surgeons who seek to extend their capabilities at managing often-complicated pathologies with decreased morbidity." (Rakesh K Chandra, Doody's Review Service, February, 2008) "The endoscopic approach is becoming increasingly popular and we in plastic surgery must keep in touch with what is happening. This book is coauthored by a neuroradiologist, an endocrinologist, an anesthesiologist, and an interventional neuroradiologist. ... This in itself makes it an interesting publication. ... For plastic surgeons involved in skull base surgery, this book is worth an investment for the library." (Ian Jackson, European Journal of Plastic Surgery, Vol. 31, 2008)show more
