HOW TO USE THIS BOOK 
The structure of the A to Z books has by necessity changed slightly.The principle of listing all the structures in an alphabetical manner andhence making the book its own index for easy retrieval has beenmaintained, but because of the complexity of this material, it has beennecessary to do this after first dividing the material into a number ofmain topics as was the case in
the A to Z of the Head & Neck 
.Thank you
