Comparing Modified with Conventional Parotidectomy for Benign Parotid Tumors

This study retrospectively analyzed 99 patients who had benign parotid lesions and underwent parotidectomy using either conventional or modified parotidectomy. The operation time, cosmetic outcome, great auricular nerve anesthesia, incidence of Frey syndrome, and secretory function with the two techniques were compared.Results: The mean operation time was shorter and the total complication rate was obviously lower in the modified surgery group (p

ConclusionsPartial parotidectomy adopting a retrograde nerve dissection under LA is feasible and minimally invasive in treating benign parotid tumors. It can avoid the adverse effects of general anesthesia and promote day surgery or minimize hospital stay.

Adenomatous ductal proliferation/hyperplasia (ADP/H) of the salivary gland, a rare asymptomatic nonneoplastic lesion that histopathologically resembles basal cell adenoma, is typically incidentally identified in resected specimens of other salivary diseases such as tumors and chronic sialadenitis. A 70-year-old male was referred to our hospital with a 9-month history of continuous swelling in the left parotid region. A physical examination revealed a soft mass in the left parotid gland, which was identified as a cystic mass by computed tomography. A parotid tumor with cystic components was suspected, and partial parotidect...

Conclusion: Transtracheal lidocaine ensured patient immobility with hemodynamic stability during total parotidectomy with nerve stimulation studies as compared to intraoperative dexmedetomidine infusion.

Publication date: Available online 11 January 2017 Source:Egyptian Journal of Anaesthesia Author(s): Mohamed Ibrahim For superficial parotidectomy general anesthesia is ideal, but certain patients may be unfit. The present case had uncontrolled hypertension together with difficult airway. To avoid any suspected complications, we decided to do the operation under local anesthesia. We planned to block the maxillary nerve and superficial cervical plexus with greater auricular nerve together with incision site infiltration. A mixture of bupivacaine 0.25% and lignocaine 1% with adrenaline 1: 200,000 was prepared. The block was...

ConclusionIn selected cases, parotidectomy under sedation plus locoregional anesthesia is feasible and safe. The careful selection of patients and the close collaboration with an anesthesiologist is the key to a successful procedure. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Head Neck, 2016

ConclusionTransfacial gland‐preserving removal of difficult parotid stones is a well tolerated and effective alternative to parotidectomy. Moreover, it is faster and less expensive than parotidectomy, maximizing both surgeon time and hospital resources. Level of Evidence4. Laryngoscope, 2016

Authors: Kim E, Ryu JH, Byun SH Abstract BACKGROUND: According to several studies investigating the relationship between muscle activity and electroencephalogram results, reversal of neuromuscular blockade (NMB) may affect depth of anesthesia indices. Therefore, we investigated the effect of pyridostigmine on these indices via spectral entropy. METHODS: Fifty-six patients scheduled for thyroidectomy or parotidectomy were included in this study and randomized into two groups. At the start of skin suturing, the desflurane concentration was adjusted to 4.2 vol% in both groups. Following this, the pyridostigmine gr...
