Temporomandibular Disorders Book Review:

This multidisciplinary textbook presents a unique approach to diagnosis and management of the various temporomandibular disorders. Written by a large group of eminent researchers and clinicians, it links current scientific concepts of basic anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and pathology of the temporomandibular joint with specific diagnostic and treatment protocols that are based on sound clinical data. Thus, in keeping with the current thrust in medicine and dentistry, the book provides access to the best available evidence so that clinicians can make informed rather than empirical decisions about what is appropriate therapy. Where lack of data or rapid changes in a particular discipline do not allow for evidence-based conclusions or recommendations, the book highlights the areas of agreement and disagreement in order to expose the deficiencies in our present knowledge base. In a field of treatment long associated with controversy, this book educates readers about which current practices of diagnosis and treatment are strongly supported by scientific research and which are supported only by practical experience and/or anecdotal evidence.

Evidence Based Clinical Practice in Otolaryngology An Issue of Otolaryngologic Clinics E Book Book Review:

The concept of Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) has flourished in recent years and it seems that clinicians, more than ever, crave evidence from the medical literature to inform their clinical care decision making. While it is heartening that great volumes of evidence may exist, it is a daunting task to assimilate, critically review, prioritize, grade, and operationalize this crucial information. This volume of Otolaryngologic Clinics attempts to do just that. This book examines Evidence Based Practices on topics of critical importance to otolaryngologists-head and neck surgeons. The evidence has been gathered and is presented by leaders in their respective fields. Topics cover evidence-based practice of: Management of Vertigo, Management of Adult Sensory Neural Hearing Loss, Cochlear Implantation, Reflux in Sinusitus, Balloon Dilation in Otolaryngology, Postoperative Care in Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, Functional Rhinoplasty, Sublingual Immunotherapy for Allergic Rhinitis, Adult Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Pediatric Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Pediatric Tonsillectomy, Management of Vocal Cord Paralysis, Management of Hoarseness, Endoscopic Skull Base Resection for Malignancy, Management of Glottic Cancer, Management of Thyroid Cancer, and Management of N0 Neck.

Cancer and its Management Book Review:

Now in its seventh edition, this highly-regarded book is designed as an introductory and reference text on the principles of diagnosis, staging, and treatment of tumors. As for the last 6 editions of the book, the aim and scope of the new edition are once again to provide a thorough yet reasonably brief account of the whole field of oncology, focusing on the latest principles of cancer management. The book is already well established, having been first published in 1986 and in continuous print since then. The authors are rightfully proud of their strong legacy of providing carefully revised new editions of this standard and well-received cancer text for audiences in the UK and abroad. Oncology is a very rapidly changing speciality, with many new treatments and even treatment modalities coming on stream with bewildering speed. Besides a thorough general updating of the text, figures, and tables, the new seventh edition adds a new chapter on Molecular Targeted Therapy, making the book 30 chapters in total. This accessible and practical resource is invaluable to trainees and specialists alike in oncology, palliative care and general medicine, as well as specialist nurses, general practitioners, medical students, and professions allied to medicine.

TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours Book Review:

TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours, 7th Edition provides the latest, internationally agreed-upon standards to describe and categorize cancer stages and progression. Published in affiliation with the International Union Against Cancer (UICC), this authoritative guide contains important updated organ-specific classifications that oncologists and other professionals who manage patients with cancer need to accurately classify tumours for staging, prognosis and treatment. The major alterations addressed in the 7th Edition concern carcinomas of the oesophagus and the gastroesophageal junction, stomach, lung, appendix, biliary tract, skin, and prostate. In addition, there are several entirely new classifications: gastrointestinal carcinoids (neuroendocrine tumours) gastrointestinal stromal tumour upper aerodigestive mucosal melanoma Merkel cell carcinoma uterine sarcomas intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma adrenal cortical carcinoma. A new approach has also been adopted to separate anatomical stage groupings from prognostic groupings in which other prognostic factors are added to T, N, and M categories. These new prognostic groupings, as well as the traditional anatomical groupings, are presented for oesophageal and prostate carcinomas.
