In his new book, Professor Mirko Tos, one of the world's most famous and influential otologists, deals with the application of autogeneous cartilage, harvested from the concha or the tragus, for middle ear reconstructions. Because of the perceived benefits of using cartilage in tympanic membrane and attic reconstruction, this surgical method, called cartilage tympanoplasty, has become increasingly popular, and is now an established procedure in otosurgical practice. During the last years, several new cartilage tympanoplasty methods have been developed and published. In this book the 23 known cartilage tympanoplasty methods are defined, classified, and thoroughly described and illustrated in over 1100 instructive drawings. Professor Tos also analyzes the anatomical and functional results of surgery, illustrates eventual functional differences between the various methods, with the aim to promote the basic and clinical research in cartilage tympanoplasty. The main goal of this book is to teach otologists who are in training the different cartilage tympanoplasty methods, using systematic demonstrations of the different techniques. Experienced otosurgeons may also benefit from this book, because it is the first book on cartilage tympanoplasty, representing the very first collection and published classification of all known cartilage tympanoplasty methods.

I am very happy with results by various techniques used in middle ear reconstructions. as you too have shown the classifications,technique and results so nicely ..I am also grateful for the foreword you wrote for my book on Tragal cartilage in Middle ear Reconstruction. Your book is unique in all respects from the point of learning curve for the upcoming otologists.
