This informative publication looks at the development and current state of otolaryngological research and practice in ASEAN countries. Written by leading experts in the field, it emphasizes a global approach to ear and hearing care, and documents and updates epidemiological aspects as well as educational programs for the deaf. Special attention is given to population-based epidemiological studies, which are amongst the most important tools in revealing the frequency of ear diseases and hearing disabilities in children and adults. These studies are of particular importance in cases where children are partially or completely deaf, and when early intervention is vital in order to preserve their ability to communicate and to guarantee their future prospects through appropriate education. Readers will also find an interesting discussion on the surgical treatment of carcinomas in the oral cavity and the management of nasal problems caused by anatomical variation, allergies or traumas. The book will be of immense value to those working in the field of ORL and related sciences.
