As technology advances, practicing otolaryngologists and those still in training register in educational courses to refresh their surgical skills and stay abreast of progress. While information is becoming available in several journals, there is a definite need for this single volume surgical atlas-like book containing precise descriptions of the surgical techniques used in rhinology and sleep apnea surgery. Each chapter of this book is contributed by surgeons with extensive experience, who have already published on the specific procedure described. Each chapter contains diagrammatic or illustrative descriptions of surgical techniques, and provides tips and pearls of wisdom for avoiding complications when the procedures are performed. This comprehensive work of surgical information serves as a valuable resource for otolaryngologists in training to augment their surgical education and for practicing otolaryngologists as a review source to best approach the surgical pathologies they encounter in their practice of rhinology and treatment of sleep apnea.
