From the reviews:

"This comprehensive reference details both the medical and surgical management of complex revision sinus surgery patients in the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative periods. … Written for a general otolaryngology audience, the book is useful for skill levels ranging from the junior resident to the advanced sinus surgeon. … The book excels with clarity, organization, and presentation. … This is an essential reference for surgeons caring for advanced and revision sinus surgery patients." (Micah J. Hill, Doody’s Review Services, January, 2009)

"This book … focuses on revision surgery. … The experienced contributors describe their experience, confirming the difficulty of this surgery from its indication to realization. … New technologies are presented and discussed. The quality of the bibliography of each chapter is an additional advantage to this book. … In summation, this book will probably become a cornerstone of the library of all present and future endoscopic surgeons." (Jean Michel Klossek, European Archives of Otorhinolaryngology, Vol. 266, 2009)
