Abstract

Otolaryngological conditions affect individuals of all ages from newborns to the elderly, and have serious consequences for daily functions such as communication, mobilisation, breathing, smelling, tasting, and swallowing. There is a constant desire to understand the best evidence for current practice in this ever evolving field of medicine in which key publications underpin contemporary knowledge. Landmark Papers in Otolaryngology presents a distilled summary of 99 of the classic, ground-breaking, and significant publications in the field of otolaryngology that are of essential relevance to the specialty today. Each paper is described, critiqued, and brought into the context of modern-day practice by internationally renowned specialists. Divided into eight clear sections to aid quick reference, and covering all major aspects of ENT practice, this title is an excellent all-round primer for the reader. Topical chapters, presented in a clear layout, deliver up-to-date knowledge that is relevant to issues and controversies in otolaryngology.
