Endoscopic Ear Surgery Guest Editors: Manuela Fina, Justin S. Golub, Daniel J. Lee

Visualization is the key feature of safe and effective surgery. Until the introduction of the operative microscope in the mid 1900s, middle ear surgery was a crude endeavor, and ossicular reconstruction was merely an idea. Once the tympanic cavity could be illuminated and magnified, a new golden era of otologic surgery emerged.

Currently, there are no articles still in press. The most recently published articles may be viewed from the Current Issue. New articles are added as soon as they are available so check back later.
