Written by recognized international experts, Laryngeal and Tracheobronchial Stenosis provides practicing professionals with an up-to-date, accessible reference text for managing stenosis of the larynx, trachea or bronchi. The editors have treated a significant number of patients with this condition and have collected objective and scientifically validated outcome measures, thus establishing a balanced and scientific approach to literature review and the material presented. This text aims to provide guidance, based upon a body of evidence, to enable readers to make informed decisions on management options. Laryngeal and Tracheobronchial Stenosis covers new topics applicable to all populations, such as: Objective outcomes assessment - a new field that has largely developed through the editors' efforts. The worldwide shift in a surgical emphasis toward endoscopic and office-based procedures. The development of new tracheal replacement techniques. New diseases that have emerged and disease management. Clinically-accessible, significant background bodies of knowledge on histopathology and physiology.
