OBJECTIVE: This study aims to answer whether Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse Imaging (ARFI) can reasonably be employed in initial examination and follow-up during therapy in patients with sialolithiasis, one of the most common non-malignant disorders of the salivary glands. METHODS: Mechanical tissue properties of affected and contralateral healthy salivary glands were analyzed by ARFI in 129 patients with sialolithiasis. In different subgroup analyses, ARFI shear wave velocity values were compared between healthy and diseased submandibular or parotid glands, salivary glands with calculi exhibiting different sizes, as well as before and after therapy...

Ultrasound is the preferred initial imaging modality in Europe and Asia for assessing the major salivary glands. In experienced hands, it is sensitive for a range of salivary pathologies, often diagnostic, and also a safe, cost-effective gatekeeper for further investigations as well as image-guided diagnostic biopsies and aspirations. This article reviews the scanning technique and normal sonographic anatomy of major salivary glands and overviews typical sonographic appearances of salivary pathologies, including infective and inflammatory conditions, sialolithiasis, and neoplasms...

Sialolithiasis is one of the most common and extensively obstructive disorders of the major salivary glands. Here, we report 3 cases of sialolithiasis in the submandibular salivary gland showing symptomatic similarities to other dental and non-dental disorders of the maxillofacial area. How the various clinical features of this condition and findings on 3D-CT may lead to a misdiagnosis are also discussed. In the first case, that of a 45-year-old woman, a final diagnosis of a non-radiopaque submandibular sialolith allowed the initially indicated surgical extraction of a malerupted and semi-impacted right mandibular 3rd molar to be abandoned...

We report the cases of an 89-year-old woman and a 77-year-old woman with long-standing chronic sialadenitis (60 and 10 years, respectively) who were referred to our large academic medical center for sialendoscopy. Both patients presented with symptoms of acute parotid duct obstruction in the background of long-standing parotid duct disease. Imaging demonstrated ductal dilation and periductal inflammation and, along with the clinical findings, was supportive of a diagnosis of acute parotitis in the setting of chronic obstructive parotid disease...

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease is a rare immune-mediated disease characterized by the infiltration of IgG4-positive plasma cells and unique storiform fibrosis of multiple organs. The majority of IgG4-related disease patients respond to glucocorticoids, yet the precise mechanism of their action remains unclear. Pathological sections of the submaxillary gland, kidney, and retroperitoneum from 20 patients in total diagnosed with IgG4-related disease were analyzed for glucocorticoid receptor expression and the cell types expressing glucocorticoid receptor...

Background: Sialendoscopy is gaining in popularity in treating calculus disease. The delicacy of the instrument and the diameter of the salivary ducts are factors that limit the ability to achieve complete success. There is also continued speculation regarding the utility of the procedure, especially among clinicians who are masters of conventional methods like sialadenectomy and sialodochotomy. Objective: To assess the efficacy of sialendoscopy over conventional methods in treating sialolithiasis...

Sialolithiasis is rare in children, there are no guidelines for its treatment, and there are few, if any, long term follow-up studies. We report a retrospective review of medical records of children who were treated for sialolithiasis by sialendoscopy between 1 January 2007 and 31 December 2011, and who have been followed up for 4-8 years. Personal and clinical details, including age, sex, symptoms, whether the lithiasis was parotid or submandibular, the technique of sialendoscopy and complications, were recorded...

PURPOSE: Sialolithiasis is defined as the presence of one or more calcified structures within the duct of a major or minor salivary gland. It occurs as a result of deposition of calcium salts around an accumulation of organic debris in the duct lumen. The main signs and symptoms are edema and bacterial infection with abscess formation. METHODS: This study aimed to report two cases of submandibular sialolithiasis treated surgically with diode laser and conduct a review of the literature by means of a systematic search...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the efficacy of sialendoscopy in the management of adult chronic recurrent parotitis without sialolithiasis. In addition, preliminary results of an initial randomized placebo-controlled trial of single-dose intraductal steroid injection given concurrently with sialendoscopy, are presented. METHODS: Forty-nine adult patients with chronic recurrent parotitis without sialoliths were included in this study...

Purpose: Sialolithiasis is one of the most prevalent large obstructive disorders of the submandibular glands. The aim of this study was to investigate submandibular sialolithiasis with computed tomography (CT) and scintigraphy, with a particular focus on the relationship between CT values of the submandibular glands and their excretion rate. Materials and Methods: Fifteen patients with submandibular sialolithiasis who underwent CT and salivary gland scintigraphy were included in this study...

OBJECTIVE: The imaging of stones in the salivary glands and ducts poses a challenge, even to experienced ultrasound examiners. This study investigated whether the 'twinkling artefact', which occurs at internal calcific foci during Doppler ultrasound examinations, is useful for detecting salivary gland stones. METHODS: In a model test, 20 salivary stones were analysed in vitro, via Doppler ultrasound, with regard to their representability and the triggering of the twinkling artefact...

OBJECTIVES: To assess results after treatment of difficult/complex sialolithiasis with extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) and intraductal pneumatic lithotripsy (IPL). STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study in a tertiary referral center. METHODS: Altogether, 63 stones were diagnosed in 38 patients with difficult/complex sialolithiasis. Forty-nine stones were treated with fragmentation using both ESWL and IPL. Stones accessible with the sialendoscope were treated primarily with IPL in multiple sialolithiasis...

Salivary gland lithiasis affects 1 to 2% of adults. The submandibular glands are concerned in 87% of cases. An association between kidney and salivary lithiases, although often mentioned, has rarely been observed. We relate an exceptional case of parotid and submandibular cystine sialolithiasis with kidney cystine lithiasis in a patient with cystinuria. Cystine lithiasis occurs in 1% of kidney lithiasis cases. The purpose of this article is to discuss the arguments, diagnosis, and therapeutic attitude in front of salivary cystine lithiasis...

Between August 2009 and May 2016, 74 patients underwent sialoendoscopic surgery. 32 patients had parotid gland disease and 9 patients had intermittent swelling of the parotid gland and sialoliths were not detected with CT imaging. 4 patients were diagnosed with idiopathic Stensen's duct stenosis. Sialendoscopy directly confirmed Stensen's duct stenosis in 2 patients. However, the sialendoscope was unable to be inserted in the other 2 patients, who had stenosis of the orifice of the Stensen's duct. Balloon expansion of the duct was performed in these 2 patients and a steroid drug was injected into the duct in one patient...

INTRODUCTION: Since the beginning of the use of sialendoscopy and extracorporeal lithotripsy, recommendations have changed. The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the efficiency of our treatment protocol, without a lithotripter, under general anaesthesia in the Stomatology and Maxillofacial Surgery Department of Lille University Hospital. The secondary goals were to evaluate patient tolerance and satisfaction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All patients treated with sialendoscopy alone, sialendoscopy with a combined surgical approach or a transoral approach (TOA) (sialolithotomy) between January 2013 and December 2015 were included...
