Since 1967, Anson and Donaldson's Surgical Anatomy of the Temporal Bone has been the gold standard reference in its field. Now, in collaboration with Drs. Duckert, Lambert, and Rubel--all preeminent leaders in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery--Dr. Donaldson has further refined this classic text/atlas to make it even more useful for study, reference, and presurgical review.An invaluable new feature of the Fourth Edition is a step-by-step dissection guide that details all temporal bone dissection techniques and improves the reader's understanding of three-dimensional temporal bone relationships. The Fourth Edition also achieves a better balance between developmental and adult anatomy and provides more thorough coverage of anatomy related to neurotology and base of skull surgery. Over 400 meticulously accurate, detailed drawings from dissected temporal bones, by two talented medical artists, George Buckley and Kate Sweeney, depict the intricacies of the temporal bone.
