This atlas is one of a series of five volumes entitled Comprehensive Surgical Atlases in Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery. It is divided into two major parts: "Velopharyngeal Insufficiency" and "Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate." In part 1, there are chapters on anatomy, diagnosis, surgical considerations, and surgical techniques in velopharyngeal insufficiency. In part 2, there are chapters on anatomy and embryology of the lips and palate, followed by diagnostic and surgical techniques for repair of clefts in these areas. The last two chapters in this part deal with repair of associated nasal deformities.
The organization of this volume is logical and the text is concise and complete. The illustrations are numerous, aesthetically pleasing, and anatomically accurate. The book is attractively bound, the paper is high quality, and the layouts are conducive to following text and illustrations.
