About this book


Management of salivary disorders encompasses a broad array of diseases, both benign and malignant. To better demonstrate the evolution of this field and its diagnostic and therapeutic management, the contents of this book have been organized to reflect the diverse nature of salivary gland anatomy, physiology, and dysfunction in various states of disease. This text first addresses practical office-based diagnostic approaches. It continues with congenital and acquired salivary dysfunction, including the goals for restoration of gland function. The third portion of this book provides detailed information on assessment and therapy for benign and malignant tumors of the major and minor salivary glands. Each chapter is authored by internationally known authorities in this field. Illustrative photographs and sketches are included in each chapter, to demonstrate the disorders and surgical techniques described. In summary, this comprehensive book serves as a useful reference and practical manual for clinicians dealing with salivary gland disorders. Whether as an introductory or advanced reference text, the reader will find that this book fulfills an important role in the management of salivary gland diseases.

From the reviews:

"Salivary Gland Disorders spans the entire array of conditions that can affect salivary tissues. The contributors are international experts. … The important message the practitioner should take from this book is that salivary gland conditions are varied, and the treatment can require the expertise of a number of specialists. … will be most valuable to these specialists, and particularly to otolaryngologists, who will definitely benefit from the thorough exposition. This well-written book serves as a single source for the current medical knowledge in this area." (Marvin P. Fried, New England Journal of Medicine, April, 2008)

"This textbook concentrating on salivary gland disorders including all different entities and aspects is to be welcomed. … It is easy to conclude, that this book is easy and interesting to read. … definitively it belongs to the library of every department dealing to a larger extent with salivary gland disorders. It is a good handbook giving also the necessary background information of the diseases of the salivary glands in addition to very practical and detailed approaches to deal with these disorders." (Reidar Grénman, European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, Vol. 265, 2008)
