Sialendoscopy (SE) represents nowadays one of the standard diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in the treatment of major salivary glands lithiasis. We know from experience that it is successful only in small percentage of patients, when used in monotherapy. However, it represents an indispensable part of all of the combined minimally invasive gland-preserving treatment techniques, the success rate of which is around 90%. In this work, we focused on the role of sialendoscopy in the treatment of patients with larger inflamed fixed stones in glandula parotis...

Salivary gland surgery is a common procedure in otorhinolaryngology. Parotidectomy and submandibulectomy represent the treatment of choice in benign and malignant tumors of the salivary glands. However, as to this point there are no guidelines are concerning diagnostic and therapeutic approaches of benign and malignant tumors of the salivary gland. Since the introduction of sialendoscopy there are new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures available in treating obstructive sialadenitis. The present article provides an overview of anatomical principles, diagnostic approaches and the most important salivary gland surgeries for future otorhinolaryngologists under specialist training...

INTRODUCTION: Parotid gland duct lithiasis is preferentially managed using minimally-invasive techniques such as sialendoscopy and lithotripsy. However, these 2 techniques cannot remedy all obstructions and other techniques such as the Transoral Stensen's Duct Approach (TSDA) may sometimes be helpful. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A retrospective study of patients treated with TSDA was conducted to evaluate this procedure between 2006 and 2013. Criteria for inclusion were: failures for lithiases (22 patients and 28 lithiases) treated with sialendoscopy and/or lithotripsy for parotid gland duct obstruction...

CONCLUSIONS: In most cases, both diagnostic and interventional sialendoscopy are well tolerated under local anaesthesia (LA) or under local anaesthesia with sedation (LAS), with reasonably low patient-reported discomfort. Sialendoscopy can be considered a patient-friendly and relatively painless, gland-preserving, minimally invasive procedure suitable for day surgery. OBJECTIVE: To investigate patient experience and compliance in sialendoscopy under LA/LAS. METHODS: This prospective study was conducted at an academic tertiary-care university hospital...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Chronic sialadenitis can affect patients of all age ranges and typically presents as recurrent or chronic painful swelling of the salivary glands. In children, the most common cause of sialadenitis is juvenile recurrent parotitis. Salivary stones, or sialolithiasis, are a much less common cause. Historically, for patients with chronic sialadenitis who failed conservative management, salivary gland removal was the standard treatment option. Recently, however, sialendoscopy has emerged as an effective gland-preserving procedure for sialadenitis evaluation and treatment in adults and children...

We present the results of treatment of sialolithiasis of the submandibular and parotid glands using sialendoscopy and sialendoscopy-assisted surgery. Between 2009-2013, 397 consecutive patients (mean (range) age 48 (18-76) years) were treated for obstructive diseases of the major salivary glands (sialolithiasis n=239, 175 submandibular and 64 parotid). In a total of 175 patients with 191 stones in the submandibular gland treated by endoscopic retrieval or surgical release, 149 patients (85%) were rendered free of stones (by sialendoscopy alone n=82, and sialendoscopy with operation n=67) Twenty patients (11%) had residual stones and 6 patients (4%) required excisionof the gland...

Nonneoplastic disorders of the salivary glands involve inflammatory processes. These disorders have been managed conservatively with antibiotics, warm compresses, massage, sialogogues, and adequate hydration. Up to 40% of patients may have an inadequate response or persistent symptoms. When conservative techniques fail, the next step is operative intervention. Sialendoscopy offers a minimally invasive option for the diagnosis and management of chronic inflammatory disorders of the salivary glands and offers the option of gland and function preservation...
