About the book

The nose plays critical importance in our daily lives and it contributes to our wellbeing and safety as far as airway and smell are concerned. The nose is connected to the paired four sinuses through narrow openings known as ostium. During the past three decades, research on the anatomy of the paranasal and sino-nasal system disorders has seen an ever-growing interest in this exciting field of study.

This book provides the reader with an overview of the latest developments in the anatomy of paranasal sinus and sino-nasal system disorders and focuses on the most important evidence-based developments in rhinology. The book will emphasize six different sections namely 'Normal anatomy and anatomical variations', 'Arterial supply of nasal cavity', 'Radiology of paranasal sinuses', 'Frontal/anterior and posterior ethmoid/maxillary/ sphenoid sinusitis', 'Orbit and lacrimal system' and ' Pituitary and para sellar region'. General otolaryngologists, rhinologists, anatomists, specialist related services, and general practitioners with interest in otolaryngology will find this book useful and of interest.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Mia Miskulin

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
