The subject matter deals primarily with injuries to nerves supplying the teeth. Contents include a review of the literature on this subject, review of the anatomy of the area under consideration, explanation of materials and methods used and presentation and evaluation of data in 247 cases in which operations on the maxillary sinuses were performed. The data are presented in detail with adequate charts and graphs.

This monograph should be of particular interest to dentists, oral surgeons and otorhinolaryngologists. From the standpoint of the radiologist, the monograph mentions the use of roentgen examinations only in detecting causes for impairment of sensation to teeth other than postoperative effects; namely, periapical infection and root canal fillings. If the radiologist is familiar with dental injuries resulting from surgical procedures, as outlined in this monograph, he is in a better position to serve as a consultant.
