Kim Ah-See, Aberdeen, Scotland, UK, The Journal of Laryngology & Otology, (January 2013): "This is a very well produced hardback textbook...The authors are quite explicit in their aims. They set out to produce a book to highlight potential pitfalls in ESS, and to give advice on avoiding problems and optimising patient outcomes. The book is well written, and each chapter is populated with numerous tables, clinical photos, and radiological images. A nice feature of some chapters is a table of common pitfalls and errors and how to avoid them, culminating in an evidence-based summary of the chapter author's principles of evaluation, management and therapy. Other chapters include case studies to illustrate salient points." Claire Hopkins, DM, FRCS, (ORL-HNS), Consultant ENT Surgeon, Guy's and St. Thomas', London, UK, ENT & Audiology News, January/February 2013, Vol 21 (No 6), (January/February 2013): "This is a great book, joining my list of books I wish I had written right at the top - it is a great credit to the authors, and will be of benefit to trainees and more experienced ESS surgeons alike. This does what it says on the tin - it will help to improve outcomes and avoid failures - it is full of useful tips, good quality images and relevant case studies." Robert Chun, Medical College of Wisconsin, Children's Hospital, International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology: "[Endoscopic Sinus Surgery] is a thorough instruction manual to the sinuses with evidence. Each chapter ends with case scenario but most importantly ends with a chart reviewing the level of evidence in the medical literature for each management and treatment recommendation... The video attachment is very comprehensive and helpful. There are clear videos discussing advanced techniques such as anterior and maxillary artery ligation, but there are videos that also demonstrate proper and efficient operative techniques in preparation and intraoperatively... Endoscopic Sinus Surgery: Optimizing Outcomes and Avoiding Failures is a comprehensive textbook that focuses on technique, management, and evidence based recommendations. It is wonderful textbook to educate the learner and solidify the knowledge of an attending."
