Publication date: Available online 8 July 2018Source: Operative Techniques in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck SurgeryAuthor(s): Nigar Ahmedli, David MyssiorekAbstractThe surgical approach to a parotidectomy was first described by Blair in 1912 for the resection of all parotid tumors. It has since evolved and changed into numerous permutations. The modern-day approach considers the size, location and sometimes anticipated pathology of the parotid tumor in addition to the need for a possible neck dissection. As the concern for cosmesis increases in today's society, the well-known Modified Blair incision has been revised to limi...

Publication date: Available online 3 July 2018Source: Operative Techniques in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck SurgeryAuthor(s): David MyssiorekABSTRACTParotid surgery has evolved over the last century. Many of the long-held principles have been questioned and consequently modified. The basic tenets of parotid surgery for benign disease have been identifying and preserving the facial nerve and complete excision of the tumor with an adequate cuff of normal tissue. This can be safely accomplished by extracapsular dissection or limited/partial parotidectomy. Extracapsular dissection implies no attempt at finding the facial nerve,...

ConclusionThe study confirmed an association of several independent prognostic factors at the stage of parotid lymph-node metastasis, related to patient, primary CSCC and PM. Complete primary resection is essential to reduce the risk of PM. Intensified radiologic and clinical surveillance should enable early diagnosis.

We report the design of a new V-shaped incision for parotidectomy that involves only preauricular and postauricular incisions and no hairline or upper cervical incision. It can be used to approach almost all the superficial parotid region, including the superior and anterior divisions, with minimal scarring. To evaluate its technical feasibility, safety, and cosmetic results, we prospectively enrolled 15 patients (between September 2015 and September 2016) who had partial parotidectomy as the primary treatment for benign parotid tumours. Operations were successfully completed through this approach alone in 14 (mean (range)...

ConclusionFine needle aspiration biopsy is an important diagnostic tool for evaluating parotid gland tumors. It is more accurate in detecting benign tumors. In tumors greater than 2 cm and extending to the deep lobe, the sensitivity of fine needle aspiration biopsy is high. The use of fine needle aspiration biopsy in conjunction with clinical and radiological evaluation may help to reduce false positive and false negative results.ResumoIntroduçãoA punção aspirativa com agulha fina é uma ferramenta valiosa na avaliação pré-operatória de tumores de cabe&cced...

ConclusionPrimary sarcomas of the parotid gland, specifically parotid leiomyosarcomas, are extremely rare. Based on this patient's tumor size, grade and resectability, this case met the criteria for a primary leiomyosarcoma. We present only the tenth case of a primary parotid leiomyosarcoma to be reported in the English literature.

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.

ConclusionsInpatient parotidectomy in the United States has evolved over the past fourteen years. Notable trends include a nearly 50% reduction of inpatient surgery, doubling in LOS, tripling of hospital charges and predominance of elderly patients with malignant disease. These results provide insight into inpatient parotid lesion management.

In conclusion, fat-containing salivary gland lesions should be considered in the list of differential diagnoses in dogs with an enlarged salivary gland and seem to be associated with an excellent prognosis after surgical excision.
