Whereas atlases of endoscopic sinus surgical procedure are a variety of, there's a critical wisdom hole created by means of the inability of a complete, up to date atlas devoted to workplace diagnostic nasal endoscopy. the 1st and basically such atlas, written in German and translated in 1978, is unfortunately old-fashioned. Filling this hole, An Atlas of Diagnostic Nasal Endoscopy illustrates all editions of ordinary intranasal anatomy and pathologies obvious via nasal endoscopy.

Developed by way of an writer with greater than fifteen years of expertise, the publication positive factors greater than six hundred photographs of standard and irregular findings of nasal endoscopy. Captioned with arrows and legends, each one picture offers a transparent and autonomous instructing message.
