Every resident in otolaryngology has to practice on temporal bones before operating on patients. Whilst the systematic training includes use of the microscope and surgical instruments, heavy emphasis is also placed on knowledge of the surgical anatomy of the middle ear and the temporal bone. This lavishly illustrated manual offers an overview of all such important structures and provides the reader with a helpful approach to gain the knowledge necessary to start operating on patients. It also supports experts to improve and teach their skills.
