Otology, Neurotology, and Skull Base Surgery: Clinical Reference Guide is a comprehensive guide designed for rapid clinical review. Written in a concise and approachable outline format, this text provides a condensed amount of high-yield information. This clinically relevant resource is organized into 12 sections that are broken down into their most important and fundamental parts by chapter, with key topics such as anatomy and embryology, hearing loss, cochlear implantation, skull base tumors, vestibular disorders, and pediatric otology.

Formatted like the bestselling "Pasha" (Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery) pocket guide, this text serves as both a study resource for qualifying exams and a portable reference guide. Otology, Neurotology, and Skull Base Surgery can be used by otolaryngology residents on their neurotology rotations, neurotology fellows throughout their training, and otologists and neurotologists looking for a portable reference guide that covers the entire breadth of the field. Audiologists and speech-language pathologists will also benefit from having a convenient reference guide to better understand their patients' diagnoses.

Key features include:

  • Contributions by leaders in the field
  • Tabs for each section for quick access
  • Key terms and notes in bold and italics

From the Foreword:

"This remarkable text, edited by Drs. McRackan and Brackmann, is a significant addition to our armamentarium of references in the field of otology, neurotology, and skull base surgery. The chapters are well-written and encompass the scope of the subspecialty. Each author is a well-recognized expert in their field and the format of the chapters by outline is extremely easy to follow. It is an outstanding reference for residents, fellows, and practicing otolaryngologists as well as neurotologists. The text is simplistic and easily addresses any question that may arise in the mind of the reader. This is clearly a reference guide. No attempts have been made to increase the prose to describe the topics, but that is not to say that the key issues are hard to assess using the format. The editors are to be commended in formulating a text that is extremely user-friendly to the reader. In these days where the majority of information we seek is available on the Internet, this particular book will be a completely different offering that will be a welcome addition to anyone's library."

    "...Just for once, this is a pocket book that might just fit into one's jacket. It is indeed a handy reference guide...The multi-author (a Who's Who of US Neurotology and Skull Base Surgery) text provides 55 chapters, ranging from the first, the History of this speciality, to the last one, intriguingly entitled, "On the Horizon"..."
