Based on 40 years of experience of the renowned Dr. Hermes C. Grillo, "Surgery of the Trachea and Bronchi" is designed to be clinically useful. The book is divided into two comprehensive sections. The first section thoroughly describes the trachea, its diseases, diagnosis, and results of treatment. The second section is a detailed surgical manual featuring descriptions of special problems and their management. Topics covered include pre- and post-operative care, anesthesia, complications, urgent airways, and other special problems, including ENT aspects, tubes, devices, stents, laser and radiotherapy, bronchopleural fistula, foreign bodies, transplantation, and irradiated airways. Tracheal replacement and the development of tracheal surgery are also critically reviewed. The text is well supported by the over 300 detailed and precise illustrations by Edith Tagrin, making "Surgery of the Trachea and Bronchi" an atlas within a textbook.
