About this book


This book aims to systematize the selection of treatment options in patients with extended parotid tumors. Clear criteria are provided to assist in the choice of treatment, from the simplest options involving use of local flaps to the most sophisticated ones. With numerous exquisitely detailed color photos, this book will assist the surgeon in ensuring that the patient achieves the best possible quality of life, no matter what the patient’s age or the associated comorbidities.

Tumors of the parotid gland present particular problems for the surgeon, especially when they extend beyond the borders of the parotid tissue. Reconstruction of the postoperative defect is especially difficult, not only due to the complexity and density of the anatomical structures in the lateral region of the head and neck, but also because of the general condition of most patients, who tend to be elderly and to have accompanying disorders. The difficulty in managing extended parotid tumors is increased by the need to sacrifice the facial nerve, even if only partially. Each case must be carefully judged and treated with caution, and Management of Extended Parotid Tumors will provide an excellent basis for decision making.
