This is our attempt to provide training surgeons a unique and very visual work that is designed to guide them in performing challenging, but intriguing, procedures. A major difficulty with most surgical manuals is that the novice can feel bludgeoned with details that lack context. The text of a surgical manual needs to be translated into visual images in order to understand and apply it to a procedural technique.
Also, primers can fail because they are so overwritten that the novice can feel hopelessly buried under an avalanche
of information, much of which is only vaguely incidental to a firm grasp of the basics. This can confuse the issues and
lead to frustration.

Indeed, most surgeons learn how to ope-
rate in spite of the textbooks, rather than because of them.This highly graphic primer is a distillation of almost fifty years of otologic and neurotologic experience by the two primary authors and other contributors as learners,
teachers, and practitioners. Each of us has been profoundly influenced by surgeons who have mastered temporal bone surgery and have mentored us in unique ways. This second edition continues to present our cumulative experience and wisdom, while also incorporating several new trends that pertain to surgery of the temporal bone. We have markedly expanded the description of techniques of infratemporal and extended middle fossa dissection, added a guide to endoscopic middle ear dissection, addressed skill transfer to the operating room (including management of vascular injuries), and listed novel, databased methods of assessing the progress of novice surgeons in temporal bone dissection.

We caution, however, that this manual will not allow you to perform all temporal bone surgery in a few weeks or even a few months. It will, however, set you solidly on the path to becoming an effective and safe temporal bone surgeon. Read it through a few times and take it with you to the lab to use as a reference. Keep to a regular schedule for your lab time and try to keep your dissection sessions focused. Your time for temporal bone dissection should be dedicated and disengaged from the myriad of inputs from our communication technologies. Take breaks to keep your practice sessions productive. You will find that a self-reinforcing experience awaits you as you learn each technique. Be aware that  the beginning stages are the toughest.

That’s okay—you’re often learning a great deal even when your initial dissections are going slowly. With time and practice, the surgical anatomy and your mastery of it will come. Most importantly, latch onto a knowledgeable otologist and get candid  feedback on your temporal bone dissections. This feedback  can be facilitated by using the skills assessment tools provided in the last chapter of this book. A good teacher is worth  more than all the training literature ever written.
