A new classification system for recurrent laryngeal nerve anatomy is proposed.  Intraoperative neural monitoring of the nerves is also covered in detail along with new horizons and encompass a practical approach to neural monitoring right from set up, actual monitoring and clinical relevance and usefulness of the monitoring data in making surgical decisions.  The current status of the field is summarized and  placed in context with optimal surgical management of these nerves. All chapters will be written by world class US and International experts in anatomy, surgery and nerve monitoring.       
The Recurrent and Superior Laryngeal Nerves will be of great value to Otolaryngologists and General Surgeons, Endocrine Surgeons, Fellows in Endocrine, Head and Neck Surgery, General Surgery and Otolaryngology residents.
