The key reference dedicated to surgery for cholesteatoma... The cholesteatoma, strictly speaking a cyst and not a cancer, nevertheless shows expansive and destructive growth patterns that may give rise to serious symptoms and consequences, including fatality, not unlike those seen for malignant neoplasms. The great challenge of therapy is to eradicate the pathologic growth while preserving hearing and other critical functions of the middle ear and petrous bone, respecting the proximity of vital neural and vascular structures, and the intricate three-dimensional relationships involved. Mario Sanna's Microsurgical Management of Middle Ear and Petrous Bone Cholesteatoma is the ultimate illustrated guide to complete management of the cholesteatoma, including assessment of the full expansion and degree of destruction caused by the growths, and short- and long-term follow-up to assess and treat for recurrence. Key Features Brilliantly illustrated with diagnostic images from otoscopy and radiology, both normal and pathological Step-by-step description of approaches and techniques for the procedures Special coverage of petrous bone cholesteatoma, which is less frequent than other forms but more difficult to diagnose and treat, with introduction and description of a new function-sparing procedure, the subtotal petrosectomy Microsurgical Management of Middle Ear and Petrous Bone Cholesteatoma extends Mario Sanna's passionate dedication to excellence in otologic teaching and training into this highly complex surgical area. Practitioners, residents, and fellows will find it indispensable. This book includes complimentary access to a digital copy on https://medone.thieme.com.
