It is a comprehensive book covering most of the real-world topics related to stapedectomy. The innovation from pick and perforator to microdrill and then to CO2 laser is a big landmark in the development of instruments for stapedectomy. The book covers various aspects of innovation in surgical techniques and the instruments used.
Various topics like stapedectomy versus stapedotomy, reconstruction of stapedius muscle, methods to handle loose piston over incus, surgery in short incus, problems during stapedectomy, revision surgery, laser stapedotomy, and stapedotomy in patients with abnormal facial nerve are discussed in depth in this book. This book will aid in laying a strong foundation for budding otologists and will help them evolve into better stapes surgeons.
- Various difficult situations encountered during surgery have been documented in the book.
- A series of photographs from author’s own collection are included to demonstrate each step of surgery for easy understanding of the subject.
- The use of laser in stapedectomy has been discussed in detail. Use of laser is a great landmark in the history of stapedectomy. It imparts excellent hearing results. Patients experience less vertigo, hence shorter hospital stay.
