Pediatric Otolaryngology is one volume in the six-volume set—Surgical Techniques in Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery. This volume is a practical guide to otolaryngologists of all levels with an overview of the most common surgical procedures performed in a pediatric otolaryngology practice. This book covers everything from tympanostomy tube placement to cochlear implantation, cleft lip and palate repair and oncologic surgery. Newer surgical procedures such as balloon sinuplasty and airway management are introduced in this atlas to give the reader an understanding of the advances made in pediatric otolaryngology as well. This atlas outlines the evidence based medicine and background leading to the development of each surgical procedure, a detailed step-by-step description of the procedures with intraoperative drawings or photographs, and a discussion of the benefits and pitfalls. Alternatives to surgical management are briefly discussed as well. This text serves as a compilation of the expertise of several practicing otolaryngologists with extensive experience in pediatric otolaryngic surgery.
