This book covers selected topics in Otolaryngology, providing a journey into the advancements in various aspects of the field. A collection of manuscripts of this nature involves extensive exposure and accumulation of knowledge from many experienced teaches over many years. It covers both basic and clinical concepts of otolaryngology.
Each author contributed his/her own perspectives on each topic adding his/her own theories, future trends and research findings. I would like to dedicate this book to those of you who will pick up the torch and by continued research, close clinical observation and the highest quality of clinical care, as well as by publication and selfless teaching, further advance knowledge in otolaryngology from this point forward.
The chapters in this book are arranged systemically into four sections – Otology, Rhinology, Laryngology, and Head and Neck. This book is intended for general otolaryngologists, sub-specialists, researches, residents and fellows. Therefore, it should encourage researchers and clinicians to innovate new ideas for future basic research and clinical practice.
This book is the outcome of input from multi-national otolaryngologists from around the world with a common goal towards better human health care. Some of the authors are very experienced, while some are newcomers as researchers or clinicians.
This book is accessible online to allow free access to as many readers as possible. It is also available in print for those who do not have internet access or are interested in having their own hard copy. This will ultimately contribute to the global distribution of knowledge in otolaryngology between researchers and clinicians.
I would like to congratulate each and every one of the contributors for their excellent input on each chapter. Each author sacrificed their valuable time and effort to write a chapter resulting in the success of this book. I would like to sincerely thank Ms Martina Durovic and Ms Romina Skomersic, the book Publishing Process Managers for their expert assistance on all issues concerning this book, Ms Ana Nikolic, the Head of Editorial Consultants for her tireless assistance, and to all for choosing me to be the editor of this book. My kind gratitude to the technical editor for arranging the book in a uniform format and InTech – Open Access Publisher, for undertaking this novel mission. I wish that this book will be part of series of books in all sub-specialities of otolaryngology and that it will enhance global collaboration not only between physicians but also for betterment of humankind. I wish the reader an enjoyable journey and hope you will find this book interesting.

I would like to thank my teachers and students from whom I gained knowledge throughout the years. Lastly, I dedicate this book to my wife Dr Pritam Kaur Mangat, my daughter Dr Manvin Kaur Gendeh and my son Dr Hardip Singh Gendeh for all their patience and understanding.
