Book Description

Practical Laryngology is an invaluable guide to laryngology. It covers all the relevant areas in the field, from basic science to disorders and diseases to in-clinic procedures and the future of laryngology.

In an easy-to-read format, the book discusses a wide variety of topics including neurological diseases of the larynx, swallowing disorders, laryngeal trauma, stenosis, reflux, acute infections, inflammatory disorders, paediatrics, benign vocal cord lesions and dysplastic lesions.

Colour drawings, clinical photographs, and imaging support the text throughout, making it an excellent reference to help the clinician find information quickly and easily. Essential information is presented in a succinct and readable style, making it vital for higher trainees preparing for their final exit examinations and for consultants both in general ENT and the subspecialty of laryngology.

This book is the ultimate guide for those wanting to learn more about the larynx, its disorders, therapeutic interventions, and other challenges which may impact patients and their families.

"This book is excellent in providing both practical and clinical knowledge of laryngology in a concise and easy-to-read manner… This book is unique in the breadth of laryngology covered in a simple way. It caters to a broad readership at all levels of laryngological training and I particularly like that it is more than an operative manual as much of laryngology is about assessment and non-operative interventions… This is a very good textbook that fills a niche in ENT surgery that other textbooks cater to poorly" - (Highly Commended, Surgical Specialities, BMA Medical Book Awards 2016)
