This cross-sectional database analysis assesses the incidence and types of facial nerve reanimation performed concurrently with total parotidectomy and facial nerve sacrifice among patients identified in the American College of Surgeons –National Surgical Quality Improvement Project database.

Cross-facial nerve graft is considered the treatment of choice for facial reanimation in patients with unilateral facial palsy caused by central facial nerve damage. In most cases, a traditional parotidectomy ...
ConclusionsWhen used in isolation, substantial variations exist in distances measured from anatomic landmarks to the main FNT in the literature. The BT utilizes three commonly used anatomical landmarks. It predictably helps in proper anatomic orientation, identification and preservation of FNT and branches with ease in parotidectomies.
This study evaluated the effects of lateral temporal bone resection (LTBR) on local tumour control in patients with locally advanced parotid gland tumours. The medical records of seven patients treated with radical parotidectomy combined with LTBR for locally advanced primary parotid tumour at the Otolaryngology Department of Dokuz Eylul University between January 1995 and December 2016 were retrospectively evaluated. Demographic variables, tumour characteristics, treatment properties, postoperative complications, follow-up durations and local, regional and distant recurrences were analysed. Before referral to our clinic, ...
Conclusion: The postoperative morbidities and outcomes for major salivary gland neoplasms in our series were acceptable and comparable to the results available in the literature. Appropriate treatment of the salivary gland neoplasm will yield good outcomes with acceptable morbidity.
Conclusions: Nodal positivity is the single most important factor affecting survival in parotid cancers. A histopathological resection margin of at least 5 mm is desirable. Advanced age along with high grade, advanced T and N stages need to be considered for adjuvant treatment.
This articles highlights the use of medical treatment for the treatment of parotid haemangioma.Case summaryA 4 year old male underwent a superficial parotidectomy for a parotid mass that was found to be a a parotid haemangioma on histology. At the age of 14 years he presented again with a parotid mass. He had imaging which aided the diagnosis of a parotid haemangioma being made. He was treated with successfully propranolol over a period of 6 months.DiscussionThere are no clear guidelines for treatment of parotid haemangiomas. These lesions can represent a clinical challenge and optimal management is controversial. It was p...
