As one of today's leading researchers of middle ear disorders, Dr. Bluestone offers a unique perspective on the diagnosis and management of common middle ear problems.The Eustachian Tubeis the first book to comprehensively cover these disorders in both adults and children.

The Eustachian Tubebegins with an overview of middle ear anatomy, and the epidemiology of middle ear disorders. Then it discusses current tests of eustachian tube function, as well as the physiology and pathophysiology of the eustachian tube. Dr. Bluestone also draws on his extensive clinical experience to describe the latest surgical and nonsurgical methods of middle ear treatment. Throughout, photographs and drawings illustrate anatomy and pathophysiology.
