This Atlas is intended as a practical resource for physicians in practice and those in training. It includes not only a general overview of various aspects of voice surgery but also previously unpublished intraoperative photographs. These are accompanied by detailed descriptions of surgical technique, including “pearls”. For the convenience of surgeons seeking an efficient, practical guide to voice surgery, much of this material has been condensed, reorganized, republished, rewritten and/or modified from Professional Voice. Section 1 on Basic Principles and Procedures provides a brief introduction to the evolution of phonomicrosurgery, and contains practical guidelines on patient selection, evaluation and treatment, informed consent, anesthesia for voice surgery, selection of instrumentation and postoperative care, as well as other subjects. Section 2 on Benign Structural Lesions offers information on the nature of nodules, cysts, polyps and other structural abnormalities (often including histological descriptions and figures) and provides detailed descriptions of surgical techniques and intraoperative photographs to guide the surgeon interested in performing such procedures. Section 3 on Premalignant and Malignant Lesions of the Larynx is primarily limited to endoscopic surgery. Laryngectomy is reviewed briefly, but is not covered comprehensively in this book. Section 4 on Neurogenic Disorders includes not only endoscopic surgery, but also information about laryngeal framework surgery to treat motion disorders of the larynx. Section 5 on Laryngeal Trauma also focuses primarily on endoscopic management, the primary mission of this atlas, although the chapter on Laryngotracheal Trauma provides an overview of relevant external procedures as well. This atlas will provide useful insights for voice surgeons. The inclusion of “tricks of the trade” that have never been published before is intended to assist all otolaryngologists in our efforts to provide state-of-the-art surgical care to our patients with voice disorders and to optimize treatment outcomes.
