About The Book

Written by recognized international experts, Laryngeal and Tracheobronchial Stenosisprovides practicing professionals with an up-to-date, accessible reference text for managing stenosis of the larynx, trachea, or bronchi.

The editors have treated a significant number of patients with this condition and have collected objective and scientifically validated outcome measures, thus establishing a balanced and scientific approach to literature review and the material presented. This text aims to provide guidance, based upon a body of evidence, to enable readers to make informed decisions on management options.

Laryngeal and Tracheobronchial Stenosis covers new topics applicable to all populations, such as:

  • Objective outcomes assessment – a new field that has largely developed through the editors’ efforts
  • The worldwide shift in a surgical emphasis toward endoscopic and office-based procedures
  • The development of new tracheal replacement techniques
  • New diseases that have emerged and disease management
  • Clinically-accessible, significant background bodies of knowledge on histopathology and physiology
