Laryngology: A Case-Based Approach is an invaluable new text for clinicians and students covering evidence-based assessment and management of a full range of laryngological conditions. This unique text examines 55 common and rare cases and covers pediatric and adult patients. The cases are separated into four sections: pediatric, voice and airway, general/systemic, and dysphagia/swallowing.

Key Features

• More than 300 figures, most in full color, including surgical photos, endoscopic images, pathological micrographs, and various process charts/diagrams and decision trees.
• More than 30 video and audio files
• Laryngology’s leading experts have contributed their knowledge, expertise and experience to discuss the varied management options as they see it. 

The book also comes with access to a PluralPlus companion website, where readers can access video and audio files to enhance their understanding of cases in the book.

With its multitude of cases and related multimedia, Laryngology: A Case-Based Approach is must-have resource for otolaryngologists, laryngologists, phoniatricians, speech-language pathologists, as well as anesthesiologists with an interest in managing the difficult airway. 

This sample video from Chapter 32 shows an initial transoral stroboscopy demonstrating mild tremor and mid vocal fold thickenings. 


"This is an excellent option for learning and stands out among other laryngology books. These others discuss laryngology in the traditional manner, but the case-based approach allows for improved focus and a more ward-style learning opportunity. These types of books are directly translatable to the clinic/hospital setting and will help readers understand and know these conditions so they can better care for patients."
—Samuel Racette, MD, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, in Doody's Book Reviews

"This unique book was written based on the novel enquiry-based teaching method particularly to illustrate laryngology conditions. It contains both adult and paediatric pathology. Each chapter starts with one or more case scenarios along with other useful subheadings to explain the concept.
It is written in a manner which is easy to read and digest. The editors brought together leading experts and decision makers to share and discuss a range of key topics. World-renowned contributors executed their tasks very effectively by sharing their wealth of knowledge and experiences.
This book is good value for money, and online supplementary materials are also an excellent adjunct. This book provides a comprehensive approach to clinical laryngology incorporating anatomical, physiological, pathological, functional and structural aspects of laryngology. All chapters are up to date and provide extremely useful information. The chapters on Laryngeal Trauma, Evaluation and Management of Dysphonic Patient, and Benign Lesions of Larynx are particularly well written with lots of images. The Paediatric Laryngology chapter is an excellent addition and the chapter titled Principles of Phonosurgery highlights medical and surgical managements.
This book provides a multidisciplinary approach to clinical laryngology. Overall, it is extremely well written and densely illustrated with colour photographs and is exceptionally well put together with interrelated chapters. This book is an ideal reference book for all otolaryngologists, providing better understanding of clinical laryngology. It is also a very applicable addition to any ENT surgeon with an interest in laryngology.
This book will be useful for senior trainees, speech and language therapists, paediatric ENT consultants, laryngologists and head and neck surgeons."
