A sound knowledge of anatomy forms the scientific backbone of medicine and surgery – equipping the owner with the tools necessary to understand, remember and ultimately manage the clinical scenarios encountered throughout ones career.
The Oxford Handbook of clinical head and neck anatomy is a novel venture for the Oxford Handbook series into the field of anatomy. It tackles the notoriously difficult three-dimensional anatomy of the head and neck and provides clinically relevant correlates, etymology and a brief insight into the people behind the commonly encountered eponymous structures and syndromes.
Traditional anatomy texts and atlases can be overwhelming in terms of volume, descriptions and accompanying images. The Oxford Handbook of clinical Head and neck anatomy offers a succinct yet comprehensive, portable and quick reference guide with over 400 colour and grey-scale illustrations. The schematic nature of the illustrations makes them readily reproducible on the operating theatre whiteboard, outpatient clinic or ward, making it a true bedside companion.
It is written and illustrated by a trainee in oral and maxillofacial surgery, with an awareness of the needs of those in a similar position, combined with firsthand insight into the difficulties faced by those attempting to learn and link the anatomy taught in pre-clinical years with cases seen in day to day clinical practice thereafter. This book is aimed at medical and dental students, trainees at all levels in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery, ENT surgery and plastic and reconstructive surgery, and radiologists and anaesthetists with an interest in head and neck. Furthermore, it provides an authoritative source for those preparing for the Member of the Royal College of Surgeons and Member of the Faculty of Dental Surgeons exams.Less
