The new edition of Surgery for Sleep Disordered Breathing has been completely updated and enriched by the inclusion of various new surgical techniques. Further, since the question of which treatment best fits each individual patient has become a highly sophisticated decision, the new edition of this book focuses on both the surgical treatment modalities as well as the current concepts for treatment decisions.
For each procedure, current data were reanalyzed according to the principles of evidence-based medicine and are presented in well-arranged and reader-friendly tables. Indications, techniques, complications, and specific follow-up treatments in the realm of sleep medicine have been compiled in the form of a primer.
This outstanding title has become an essential textbook for sleep medicine surgeons, with valuable tips and pearls of wisdom designed to help physicians reach the best possible treatment outcome for their patients.
