Sinonasal Complications of Dental Disease and Treatment: Prevention - Diagnosis - Management

As otorhinolaryngologists, we are trained to examine the computed tomography (CT) scans of all patients with maxillary chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) for potential dental disease. The mainstay of managing this is generally limited to referring the patient to their dentist or...

Style. Strength. Storz. Sybill Storz

This is an extraordinary book. When it arrived in my postbox, I certainly didn’t like it. When I opened the packet, it was big, heavy and very glitzy. My first thought was ‘coffee table book’, so I took it through...

Bluestone and Stool’s Pediatric Otolaryngology – Fifth Edition

What should be the appropriate inter-edition interval of a major multi-volume textbook? The first edition of Bluestone and Stool’s Pediatric Otolaryngology was published as a single volume in 1983, just over 30 years before this fifth edition was in 2014,...

Foundations of Aural Rehabilitation: Children, Adults, and Their Family Members – Fifth Edition

Nancy Tye-Murray leaves no stone unturned in her fifth edition of Foundations of Aural Rehabilitation: Children, Adults and Their Family Members. The exhaustive but not exhausting content offers a three-dimensional insight into the process of (re)habilitation in the clinical setting...

Laryngeal Manifestations of Systemic Diseases

Laryngeal Manifestations of Systemic Diseases is a unique reference manual which will cater to a wide potential audience. It would represent a good text for laryngologists coming across patients with known comorbidities or as new diagnoses of underlying pathologies, but...

Psychoacoustics: Perception of Normal and Impaired Hearing with Audiology Applications

The field of psychoacoustics and the practice of audiology have always been curious bedfellows. In the clinic, we commonly assess patients’ hearing ability through pure-tone detection, a classic psychoacoustical phenomenon, but just one of the many, many ways in which...

The Power of the Voice

An initial glance at the table of contents and layout of Jean Abitbol’s book, The Power of the Voice, might lead one to assume that it is heavy on style but light on substance. A closer reading proves this to...

Rhinology and Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery

Having recently acquired a post-CCT Rhinology and Skull Base fellowship, I am eternally grateful to the good folk at ENT & Audiology News for this most recent book review opportunity! The book should suit most higher-level ENT trainees through to...

Key topics in Otolaryngology – Third Edition

Eighteen years after the second edition of Key Topics in Otolaryngology, Nick Roland and his co-editors have published the long-awaited third edition. This concise book has been the friend of the examinee for the last two decades within UK and...

Basic Audiometry Learning Manual - Second Edition

The challenge of teaching students pure tone audiometry is that whilst core principles can be delivered in the classroom, a deeper understanding of audiological testing only arises from practice. Yet, if left unguided in this practice, trainee audiologists can fail...
