Surgery for cancer of the larynx and related structures (ed 2)

Book Reviews Balance Disorders: A Case-Study Approach by Joseph M. Furman, MD and Stephen P. Cass, MD. Pittsburgh, PA, Davis, 1996, 341 pages, $74.00. Complicated dizzy patients routinely evoke a strong visceral reaction on the part of the treating physician. The reasons, of course, are obvious. In our specialty, vestibular disorders may be the most difficult to diagnose and treat because the basic pathophysiology of the vestibular system is, at best, poorly understood. The problem is compounded because current literature on vestibular disorders is often confusing. Fortunately, a concise easy-tounderstand vestibular disorders book is now available. The book by Furman and Cass, Balance Disorders: A Case-Study Approach, was actually a delight to read. Though the book is divided into four separate sections, it clearly is an excellent teaching tool based on case histories. In part one, the authors quickly and concisely describe vestibular anatomy, its physiology, and the basis for vestibular laboratory testing. It also includes a section on auditory system testing and vestibular rehabilitation. Even after spending many years studying the vestibular system, I felt that this particular portion of the book was invaluable. The complex vestibular system was concisely described in easy-to-remember and understandable language.
