Abstract
Principles of Deglutition is the first in class comprehensive multidisciplinary textbook to encompass the entire field of normal and disordered deglutition. It is designed as the definitive text for all those who desire to further their knowledge of the dynamic and expanding field of deglutology. The text is created to serve as a treasured reference for clinicians, educators and trainees from such diverse backgrounds as gastroenterology, speech language pathology, otolaryngology, rehabilitation medicine, radiology and others. Principles of Deglutition brings together the state-of-knowledge from 12 disciplines involved in dysphagia through contributions of over one hundred thought leaders and master clinicians for the benefit of patients and providers alike. It concisely organizes the wealth of knowledge that exists in each of the contributing disciplines into one comprehensive information platform. Principles of Deglutition provides a one-stop destination for members of all specialties to obtain state-of-the-art and critically reviewed information regarding deglutition physiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and management. It delivers a comprehensive and in depth review of deglutition related cerebral cortical, brainstem, peripheral nerves, and neuromuscular mechanisms, advanced diagnostic modalities and standard of care and cutting edge medical, rehabilitative and surgical treatments. It is an essential reference for all deglutologists.

Abstract
This manual provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of this field, and will serve as a valuable resource for adult and pediatric surgeons at all stages of experience with interest in the use of minimally invasive surgical techniques in children. This book will review the pediatric surgical disorders that are currently treatable with these techniques. After a basic summary of the disorder, the preoperative evaluation and preparation is presented. Each chapter focuses on a detailed discussion of the surgical procedure, inclusive of anesthesia, positioning, instrumentation, and materials. Emphasis is placed on technique and tips for particularly challenging aspects of the operation. A description of the expected postoperative course and common complications of each procedure follows. The outcomes literature to include any advances since the original outcomes and expected future advances for the diagnosis and procedure is presented. It provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that will help guide patient management and stimulate investigative efforts. All chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up to date scientific and clinical information.
