BeschreibungThis book provides detailed insight into the difficult problem of pediatric airway management. Each chapter focuses on a particular condition in a very practical manner, describing diagnostic procedures and precisely explaining surgical options with the help of high-quality illustrations. Both established treatment modalities and new management concepts are considered in depth, and controversies relating to the most difficult airway reconstructions are discussed. To help the reader, boxes are included to summarize procedures and to list tips, tricks, and traps relevant to daily practice. The contributors to the book have all been directly involved in the management of children with airway disorders and write on the basis of their vast experience. Otolaryngologists, pediatric surgeons, and thoracic surgeons involved in the management of pediatric airway problems, and in particular airway stenosis, will find this book to be a treasure trove of invaluable information and guidance.

From the reviews:'It is a 350-page compendium of all one would wish to know about the childhood airway and how to manage the problems that afflict it. ' there are tremendous numbers of endoscopic pictures, graphs, charts, and drawings, which are so important to the understanding of this material. This is a well-written, concise update on the state of pediatric airway management. Even those unfamiliar with this topic will find the graphic presentations easy to understand and appreciate.'
