Modern Trends in Diseases of the Ear, Nose, and Throat presents a critical review of speech therapy for children with cleft palate. The book discusses the development and treatment of cancer of the larynx, as well as the condition of a patient after laryngectomy. Some of the topics covered in the text are the radiology of the ear, nose, and throat; the description of the pharyngeal diverticulum and laryngeal paralysis; and the mechanisms of larynx stenosis. The development of tuberculosis of the upper air passages; the physiology of the esophagus; and the diagnosis of facial paralysis are also considered. The book further tackles the intracranial complications of the aural infections; the characteristics of chronic otorrhea; and the description of the upper respiratory tract infection in children. The orbital complications of sinus infections and the tumors of the nasopharynx are also presented. A chapter is devoted to the chemotherapy of acute aural infection. The book can provide useful information to surgeons, doctors, students, and researchers.
