Drs. Smouha and Bojrab have put together the only true multimedia textbook on cholesteatoma in existence.

Comprehensive chapters then present the three components of middle ear surgery which are the middle ear, the mastoid, and the meatus and the resultant cavity. The expert authors provide perspective on the controversies in cholesteatoma management like canal wall reconstruction, facial nerve monitoring, the use of endoscopes in chronic ear surgery, and postoperative care.
