This reference for otorhinolaryngologists, plastic surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, and pediatricians is illustrated with color and b&w surgical and before-and-after photos, as well as photos of equipment. The book covers the reconstruction of severe ear malformations, describing developments in surgery and prosthetic materials, and comparing benefits of alloplastic materials to autologous cartilage. Cosmetic outcomes are described in the context of improvements in the patient's hearing, particularly in the case of bone-anchored and implantable hearing aids. The current and future impact of tissue engineering for ear reconstruction is also overviewed. Staudenmaier is affiliated with the Technical University of Munich, Germany.
