All approaches to the middle ear and all myringoplasty and ossiculoplasty
methods described in the major literature are included. Through detailed
step-by-step drawings, the reader is guided through each of the procedures, thus
enabling the young otologist to learn and the experienced physician to refocus
on the preferred method of choice.
A major didactic goal is achieved by the
categorization of the many modifications into related groups and subgroups.
Through over three decades of practice and teaching, the author has achieved in
this work the perfect blend of the fundamental and the practical. If anyone
would be restricted to a single source on this subject, this work would be his
most likely choice. It is a definitive reference for any professional involved
in middle ear surgery.
