Historically, disorders of salivary glands tend to be 'underdiagnosed and overtreated'. In the vast body of literature on this subject, emphasis has usually been put on therapeutic modalities of various diseases of the salivary glands. Whereas therapy and pathology have been treated in numerous thorough studies, the (patho )physiology of the salivary glands has remained rather poorly understood. Even less attention has been given to the diagnostic methods. Until a few decades ago, diagnosis consisted mainly of a clinical examin ation which included the patient's history, inspection, and palpation. These methods remain crucial, but a variety of new diagnostic tools have appeared since then. Their clinical value is still subject to controversy; each method has its advocates and opponents. The indications for enrolling a patient at a given point in a series of diagnostic procedures are interpreted differently. One of the most striking examples is the use of sialography. This has become a classic diagnostic procedure. Although sialography is still a useful method, it has considerable disadvantages, limitations, and even contraindications. In the major teaching hospitals, residents still tend to consider sialography as a panacea for the majority of their diagnostic problems, whereas the infor mation provided is actually rather restricted. Other modern methods such as CT and MRI have taken over the role of sialography to a certain extent. This also applies to ultrasonography and scintigraphy. Moreover, microbiol ogy, sialometry, sialochemistry, cytology, and histopathology may give super ior information in certain cases.

Antibiotic treatment is necessary if the swelling of the salivary gland is associated with purulent discharge at the orifice of the gland duct or there are other signs of bacterial infection. Unilateral swelling of the submandibular gland is usually due to sialolithiasis. Bilateral swelling with few symptoms may be caused by sialadenosis, which is associated with systemic illnesses, or by Sjögren’s syndrome. If unilateral swelling develops gradually, the possibility of a tumour should be considered, particularly in patients over 50 years of age. Do not take a biopsy but refer the patient to a specialist.

The disorders themselves cover a broad array of diseases, both benign and malignant. Thus, the contents of this book have been organized to reflect the diverse nature of salivary gland anatomy, physiology, and dysfunction in various states of disease. In this way, the evolution of the field and its diagnostic and therapeutic management are better demonstrated. Covering everything from practical diagnosis to gland tumor therapy, this really is a crucial work for any surgeon working in the facial or neck regions.

Salivary Endoscopy is a rapidly emerging field that has revolutionized the management of non-neoplastic diseases of the salivary gland, such as salivary stones, sialadenitis, and salivary duct stenosis. With the emergence of endoscopic access to the salivary ductal system, several procedural and technical innovations have emerged that have now permitted gland preservation surgery for these pathologies. As more centers and physicians are adopting this rapidly emerging and evolving procedure, there is a need for source of literature that provides current concepts and detailed technical descriptions of the procedures that involve gland preservation surgery. This text intends to capture the current concepts among experts and in literature regarding the management of non-neoplastic salivary gland diseases. The book also focuses on steps of surgical management and technical pearls while providing detailed information on the decision-making process when emcompassing the diversity of clinical presentation, intra-operative decision-making and post op care. Gland Preservation Surgery provides high quality illustrations, clinical and operative images, and videos that serve as an online resource to salivary gland surgeons and endoscopists with varying experience and expertise. ​

This international and authoritative work, which brings together current knowledge in the field of cystic fibrosis, has become established in previous editions as a leading reference in the field. The third edition continues to provide everything that the clinician or allied health professional treating patients with cystic fibrosis will need in a single manageable volume. Thoroughly revised and updated throughout, it reflects the significant advances that have been made in the field since the second edition published in 2000. Cystic Fibrosis evaluates in detail the basic science that underlies the disease and its progression, putting it into a clinical context. Diagnostic and clinical aspects are covered in depth, as are monitoring the condition and the importance of multi-disciplinary care, reflected in the sections into which the new edition has been sub-divided to improve accessibility. Future developments, including novel therapies, are covered in a concluding section. The clinical areas have been much expanded, with the introduction of separate chapters covering sleep, lung mechanics and the work of breathing, upper airway disease, insulin deficiency and diabetes, bone disease, and sexual and reproductive issues. A new section on monitoring discusses the use of databases to improve patient care, and covers monitoring in different age groups, exercise testing and the outcomes of clinical trials in these areas. Separate chapters are devoted to paramedical issues, including nursing, physiotherapy, psychology, and palliative and spiritual care. Throughout, the emphasis is on providing an up-to-date and balanced review of both the clinical and basic sciences aspects of the subject, and to reflect the multi-disciplinary nature of the cystic fibrosis care team. Drawing on the expertise of a team of international specialists from a variety of backgrounds, the third edition of Cystic Fibrosiswill continue to find a broad readership among respiratory physicians, paediatricians, specialist nurses and other health professionals working with patients with cystic fibrosis.

AFTER the appearance of the sixth edition, Herbert French had resolved to take no active part in any future production. I decided that it was not only desirable but necessary to undertake considerable reconstruction in the next edition. Although the basic principles of diagnosis must be static for all time, the considerably increased scope of investigation by accessory aids demanded the inclusion of much new material and in many instances the production of entirely re-written rather than revised articles, especially as many of the earlier contributors have died or retired. By a more logical division and allocation among new contributors, considerable overlapping or repetition evident in earlier editions has been avoided and has resulted, it is hoped, in a more compact and generally useful work. It will be noticed that the title has been altered to conform to the actual contents. By judicious pruning the index has been simplified and abbreviated whilst retaining all essential references. This has been carried out by the publishers, Messrs. John Wright & Sons, of Bristol, with an accuracy ensured from their wide experience. The highest standard of format and printing confidently expected has been maintained. For many of the illustrations I am indebted to Professor J. Whillis, who is in charge of the Department of Medical Illustration, Guy's Hospital, and to Dr. T. H. Hills, Director of the Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Guy's Hospital. In other cases acknowledgment of the source is appended to the picture. To the deletion of obsolete material and the inclusion of much that is new must be added the editorial complication of extensive cross-references when several independent contributors have to be correlated—a difficulty enhanced by the long interval that has been unavoidable between the submitting of manuscripts and publication. I have been exceptionally fortunate in having as counsellor, collaborator, and contributor Sir Adolphe Abrahams. He has spared no pains in respect of writing, proof-reading, and general advice to help me to carry on the work of my old teacher. To him I offer my warmest thanks
