Description

Scott-Brown's Otorhinolaryngology is used the world over as the definitive reference for trainee ENT surgeons, audiologists and trainee head and neck surgeons, as well as specialists who need detailed, reliable and authoritative information on all aspects of ear, nose and throat disease and treatment. This new edition has been fully updated by an international team of editors and contributors and is highly illustrated in colour throughout. The majority of the chapters are evidence-based and each contains useful features including key points, best clinical practice guidelines, details of the search strategies used to prepare the material, and suggestions for future research. The print edition is accompanied by a fully searchable electronic edition, containing the same content as the print edition, with references linked to Medline. This will provide trainee surgeons (ENT and Head and Neck), audiologists and ENT physicians with quick access to relevant information about clinical conditions, and provide them with a starting point for further research.

Reviews

"There is better quality paper and layout and a profusion of colour illustrations throughout … Every member of the Imperial Japanese Army embarking for Malaya in 1941 was handed a book entitled, in rough translation, "Just read this book and the war is already won." Well, there is still the need to apply the knowledge of course, but I see the Seventh Edition in the same light."


Liam Flood, Journal of Laryngology and Otology, 2008

"The methods used cover the diversity of subjects in the first section and provide a detailed, comprehensive, section on paediatric management guarantee that this text should provide a valuable contribution to the management of ENT patients."


Mr Ken MacKenzie, ENT News (about Volume 1)

"The chapters are clearly written by experts in the appropriate fields, and from a trainee perspective the text provides an ideal balance of breadth and depth of information. The text is supported by good illustrations and clinical photographs where applicable. All chapters include excellent 'key point' summary boxes highlighting pertinent points in the text. Where applicable there are also easy to locate summary boxes outlining the current 'best clinical practice'. Each chapter is concluded by succinctly highlighting areas where current knowledge is deficient and further research is required. Each chapter is duly and thoroughly referenced."


Miss Nazia Munir, ENT News (about Volume 1)

"Was it all worth it? - I think so and will, by its sheer size, weight and knowledge, and printed will remain a legacy to British ORL-HNS for many decades! I doubt if anybody will have the energy again to revise this textbook, as presented! Value for money? - while it is expensive, I would assume that every trainee will purchase all three volumes and refer to the contents at frequent intervals for the rest of their clinical career, and not only for the purposes of passing their examinations!"


Prof Patrick J Bradley, ENT News (about Volume 2)

"This volume is excellent regarding both the format and the content … At a glance, the book is of a high standard in all its aspects: quality in presentation and key notes, quality of drawing, pictures and images are attractive and comprehensive, and in the quality of the authors … the 'ORL Bible' is here."


Prof Jacques Magnan, ENT News (about Volume 3)

'the book of the decade [in otolaryngology]'


George Davey Howells Memorial Prize Board Member

"Since the last edition, there has been an enormous growth in our field. This edition does an outstanding job of updating the prior edition. It is an all-encompassing book presented in an extremely readable format and will certainly be my go-to otolaryngology reference - 4 Stars!"


Rodrigo Bayon, Doody's Book Review Service 2009
