The Editors for this issue of Otolaryngologic Clinics, Dr George Wanna and Dr Matthew Luke Carlson, envisioned a publication that reviews the evaluation and management of common ear and lateral skull base tumors. Intended audience includes Otologists, Neurotologists, General otolaryngologists and Neurosurgeons alike. The development of management of lateral skull base tumors has been rapid, in the past 40 years there has been a tremendous shift toward conservative therapy for benign lesions. Focused chapters review specific pathologies plus a chapter focused on stereotactic radiotherapy. Topics written by reputed leaders in the field of Otology and skull base tumors include: Imaging of temporal bone lesions; Squamous cell carcinoma of the temporal bone; Glomus tympanicum; Adenomatous tumors of the middle ear; Intralabyrinthine schwannomas; Vestibular schwannoma; Neurofibromatosis2 (including ABI and CI); Non-schwannoma tumors of the CPA; Glomus jugulare; Endolymphatic sac tumors; Non-paraganglioma jugular foramen tumors; Primary tumors of the facial nerve; Cholesterol granuloma and other petrous apex lesions; Stereotactic radiosurgery for tumors of the lateral skull base; Pediatric temporal bone malignancy; and Historical perspective on evolution in management of lateral skull base tumors.

This book provides a unique tool for approaching cranio-vertebral junction (CVJ) surgery. Following a brief introduction to the relevant anatomy and biomechanics of CVJ, it explores the field of cranio-vertebral junction lesions and their management. Furthermore, individual chapters cover endovascular surgery, endoscopic skull base techniques, navigation and robotics, ensuring that surgeons stay up-to-date. A chapter addressing the consequences of CVJ surgery with regard to sagittal balance is of particular importance. The book is structured according both to the type of lesion involving the CVJ (tumor, trauma), and to the type of surgical approach (anterior, posterior). Further, it reflects innovative treatment modalities that have improved patient safety and efficacy rates for surgery involving the CVJ, and covers both open and minimally invasive surgical methods, enabling surgeons to hone their skills in both areas.

Operating theatres are very private workplaces. There have been few research investigations into how highly trained doctors and nurses work together to achieve safe and efficient anaesthesia and surgery. While there have been major advances in surgical and anaesthetic procedures, there are still significant risks for patients during operations and adverse events are not unknown. Due to rising concern about patient safety, surgeons and anaesthetists have looked for ways of minimising adverse events. Behavioural scientists have been encouraged by clinicians to bring research techniques used in other industries into the operating theatre in order to study the behaviour of surgeons, nurses and anaesthetists. Safer Surgery presents one of the first collections of studies designed to understand the factors influencing safe and efficient surgical, anaesthetic and nursing practice. The book is written by psychologists, surgeons and anaesthetists, whose contributions combine to offer readers the latest research techniques and findings from some of the leading investigators in this field. It is designed for practitioners and researchers interested in understanding the behaviour of operating theatre team members, with a view to enhancing both training and practice. The material is also suitable for those studying behaviour in other areas of healthcare or in high-risk work settings. The aims of the book are to: a) present the latest research on the behaviour of operating theatre teams b) describe the techniques being used by psychologists and clinicians to study surgeons, anaesthetists and theatre nurses' task performance c) outline the safety implications of the research to date.

Neurosurgery is a rapidly developing and technically demanding branch of surgery that requires a detailed knowledge of the basic neuro-sciences and a thorough clinical approach. The Oxford Textbook of Neurological Surgery is an up-to-date, objective and readable text that covers the full scope of neurosurgical practice. It is part of the Oxford Textbooks in Surgery series, edited by Professor Sir Peter Morris. The book is split into 20 overarching sections (Principles of Neurosurgery, Neuro-oncology of Intrinsic Tumours; Extra-axial Tumours and Skull Lesions; Cerebro-Pontine Angle Tumours; Sellar and Supra-Sellar Tumours; Posterior Fossa Tumours; Pineal tumours; Uncommon Tumours and Tumour Syndromes; Neurotrauma and Intensive Care; Vascular Neurosurgery; Principles of Spinal Surgery; Spinal Pathology; Spinal Trauma; Peripheral Nerve Surgery; Functional Neurosurgery; Epilepsy; Paediatric Neurosurgery; Neurosurgery for Cerebrospinal Fluid Disorders and Neurosurgical Infection). Each section takes a dual approach with, 'Generic Surgical Management' chapters that focus on specific clinical problems facing the neurosurgeon (e.g. sellar/supra-sellar tumour, Intradural Spina Tumours etc.) and 'Pathology-Specific' chapters (e.g. Glioma, Meningeal Tumours, Scoliosis and Spinal Deformity, Aneurysm etc.). Where appropriate, this division provides the reader with easily accessible information for both clinical problems which present in a regional fashion and specific pathologies. The generic chapters cover aspects such as operative approaches, neuroanatomy and nuances. Specifically each chapter in the book incorporates several strands. Firstly the fundamental neuroscience (anatomy, pathology, genetics etc.) that underlies the clinical practice. Secondly, a review of the requisite clinical investigations (e.g. angiography, electrodiagnostics, radiology). Thirdly, a thorough evidence based review of clinical practice. Following this a consideration of the key debates and controversies in the field with 'pro-' and 'con-' sections (e.g. minimally invasive spine surgery, microsurgical treatment of aneurysms) is provided. A summary of the key papers and clinical scales relevant to neurosurgery form the concluding part. The book is a 'one-stop' text for trainees and consultants in neurosurgery, residents, those preparing for sub-specialty exams and other professionals allied to surgery who need to gain an understanding of the field. It acts as both a point of reference to provide a focussed refresher for the experienced neurosurgeon as well as a trusted training resource.
