Textbook and Color Atlas of Salivary Gland Pathology PDF
22.10 MB PDF
The concept of this book devoted to the diagnosis and management of salivary gland pathology arose from our long-standing friendship and professional relationship, when we first collaborated in the early 1990s. This led to a trip to India with the Health Volunteers Overseas in 1996, where we operated on numerous complex cancer cases, including salivary gland malignancies. Dr. Carlson’s interest in benign and malignant tumor surgery was fostered by the expert surgical tutelage of Dr. Robert E. Marx at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine/Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida. It was the training by Professor John Langdon who nurtured Dr. Ord’s love of the parotidectomy. Over the years, following the publication of several papers and book chapters devoted to salivary gland surgery, we realized that a textbook and atlas related to this discipline should be produced. It was believed that a work written by two surgeons who shared similar surgical philosophies would be a unique addition to the current literature. This has been a project that we have approached with energy and enthusiasm, which hopefully is evident to the reader.
The diagnosis and management of salivary gland pathology is an exciting and thought-provoking discipline in medicine, dentistry, and surgery. It is incumbent on the clinician examining a patient with a suspected developmental, neoplastic, or non-neoplastic lesion of the major or minor salivary glands to obtain a comprehensive history and physical examination, after which time a differential diagnosis is established. A definitive diagnosis is provided with either an excisional or incisional biopsy, depending on the gland involved and the differential diagnosis established preoperatively. A complete understanding of the anatomic barriers surrounding a salivary gland lesion is paramount when performing surgery for a salivary gland neoplasm.
It is the purpose of this Textbook and Color Atlas of Salivary Gland Pathology to provide both text and clinical images, thereby making this a singular work. The reader interested in the science and evidence-based medicine associated with the management of salivary gland pathology will be attracted to our text. The reader interested in how to perform salivary gland surgery as a function of diagnosis and anatomic site will find the real-time images useful. To that end, artist sketches are limited in this book. Where appropriate, algorithms have been included as a guide for diagnosis and management. It is our hope that this text and atlas will find a home on the bookshelves of those surgeons who share our fascination with the diagnosis and management of salivary gland disease.
