Endoscopic Sinus Surgery examines the surgical techniques for tackling nose and sinus disease. With the advent of multi-angled endoscopes, better optical instruments and imaging techniques, the impact of endoscopic sinus surgery has been greatly increased in recent years as it considers the problem at its root cause. The book combines a clear, practical text with extensive visual material and many colour illustrations. All aspects of functional endoscopic sinus surgery are covered including an assessment of the technique and a detailed account of both morbid and endos copic anatomy which are important to an understanding of the techniques involved. Post-operative care, complications (and how to avoid them) and radiology of the sinuses are also covered. This is an accessible and practical book for the novice which will broaden diagnostic skill and improve patient care. The many tips included will also aid established surgeons
