This brilliant atlas with its numerous colour-illustrations is the result of many years of Professor Castelnuovo's and Professor Palma's personal efforts and dedication in the field of endoscopic sinus/skull base surgery and septorhinoplasty, respectively. Not only the basic procedures, but also the advanced techniques of endoscopic sinus surgery and skull base surgery as well as some "open questions" concerning functional rhinoplasty are covered in a very reader-friendly format. The anatomical basis of these techniques are illustrated with high-quality pictures of the dissective surgical anatomy on fresh-frozen heads as well as by CT and MNR clinical anatomy. Each chapter contains special paragraphs called "Risky surgical encounters", "Bailout procedures and "Taking home pearls" where practical hints relevant for in vivo surgery are pointed out. Paradigmatic case studies contribute to an even better illustration of this field. This atlas is a helpful guide for sinonasal endoscopic surgeon, otorhinolaryngologists as well as for facial plastic and maxillo-facial surgeons, neurosurgeons and ENT/OR nurses.
