Surgical Treatment of Middle Ear Cholesteatoma contains 220 pages of text and 262 references dealing with the subject of cholesteatoma and its treatment. In nine chapters, the authors discuss terminology, pathology, pathogenesis, the clinical evaluation and complications of cholesteatoma, cholesteatoma surgery, and their indications as well as results. These topics are dealt with in a comprehensive manner, reflecting the experience and philosophies of this group of surgeons.
