  • In this unique volume, leading international experts share their experiences in the management of head and neck tumors, providing a guidebook for all surgeons dealing with head and neck neoplasms. Each chapter offers a concise description of useful ‘pearls’ and dangerous ‘pitfalls’ which must be avoided. Contributions cover topics from thyroid glands, neck metastases, and oral tumors to laryngeal, pharyngeal, and nasopharyngeal tumors, as well as salivary gland tumors, skull base tumors, and reconstruction surgery. In addition to frequent diseases which are encountered in everyday practice, some new therapeutic topics such as video-assisted thyroidectomy, robotic surgery, and management of the neck after organ preservation treatment are discussed. The 2nd edition has been extended by topical chapters of major practical interest including the latest findings and techniques. The new chapters are clearly indicated and can be recognized easily. Head and neck surgeons, otolaryngologists, neurosurgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons, radiation and clinical oncologists, and general surgeons, as well as students and residents interested in the management of head and neck tumors, will find this publication an indispensable manual.
