Y Lin, Y Wang, Y Ou, S Dong, Y Wang
The purpose of this study was to compare the complications of patients treated for a benign parotid tumour (BPT) by extracapsular dissection (ECD) vs. partial superficial parotidectomy (PSP). A comprehensive literature investigation was conducted by searching electronic databases. A systematic review and meta-analysis of comparative studies were performed to assess ECD and PSP for the treatment of BPTs with fixed-effects models. The outcomes analysed were transient or permanent facial nerve injury, Frey syndrome, recurrence rate, infection, and salivary fistula/sialocele...

This manuscript highlights key aspects regarding the practical use of botulinum toxin for the conservative nonsurgical treatment of a rarely encountered, but significant posttraumatic complication-the parotid salivary fistula. It adds information to the scarce existing literature on the subject. The authors outline the main differences between postoperative and trauma-related parotid injury regarding salivary fistula treatment. A total of 6 patients with trauma-related salivary fistulas have been treated by Abobotulinum toxin A injections over the course of 5 years...

Superficial and deep parotidectomies are known treatments for benign and malignant neoplasms of parotid glands. Due to the gland's proximity to facial nerve and other vital structures, this surgery carries the highest risk of facial nerve palsy. Another frequently overlooked complication, which can be detrimental to patient's life style is Frey's syndrome, or gustatory sweating. Other complications include flap necrosis and various contour deformities. We conducted this study on a group of 40 patients of parotid swellings to assess usage of sternocleidomastoid flap in prevention of Frey's syndrome, contour deformities, flap necrosis, salivary fistula and drain related injuries...

Introduction: Orocutaneous fistulae of dental origin are uncommon but well documented in the literature. This condition is often misdiagnosed because of the multiplicity of manifestations and the atypically presentation of the condition. Dental symptoms are rare. This makes diagnosis and treatment a challenging process. Presentation of a case: A 67-year-old patient presented in the emergency room with an abscess in the parotid area. After incision and drainage the patient developed a non-healing fistula in the region of the parotid...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Salivary fistulas are a common minor complication of parotid surgery. botulinum toxin has repeatedly been reported to be an adequate treatment of this entity. To date, there is little scientific evidence for clinical decision making after appearance of a salivary fistula. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective chart analysis of 16 patients who had been treated with botulinum toxin for salivary fistula. METHODS: All patients who had been treated for salivary fistula at a tertiary referral hospital from 2010 to 2016 were included...

PURPOSE: Parotidectomy may be burdened by numerous complications that may worsen subjects' quality of life (QoL). These include paresis or paralysis of the facial nerve, face profile asymmetry, keloids, salivary fistula, Frey Syndrome (FS), First Bite Syndrome (FBS), and hypo-anaesthesia of the skin. This study is an effort to assess the incidence of complications following parotidectomy and their impact on subjects' QoL. METHODS: Subjects undergoing parotidectomy for benign neoplasms from 2012 to 2015 were selected and invited to attend our outpatient clinic...

OBJECTIVE: Condylar and subcondylar fractures (CSFs) are among the most common mandible fractures. If reduction of these fractures is not carried out correctly, serious complications can result, including infection, damage to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) function, malocclusion, nonunion, malunion, and ankylosis of the TMJ. METHODS: We used a preauricular, mini-incision, open technique (PMIOT) for CSF of the mandible. 66 patients (48 males, 18 females), with a total of 72 CSFs of the mandible, were repaired with PMIOT between 2011 and 2016...

PURPOSE: To describe a modified peri-angular approach to address subcondylar and condylar neck fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A modified peri-angular incision is used to approach a fractured condyle through the anteroparotid transmasseteric approach. RESULTS: In the authors' experience, this method provides quick and clean exposure to the fractured condylar base and neck fractures for open reduction and internal fixation. CONCLUSION: Although the peri-angular approach has been discussed in the literature, the authors' modification lessens the chance of complications, such as marginal nerve injury and parotid fistula formation, because the nerve is visualized and kept isolated throughout...

Our aim was to investigate whether perioperative transdermal application of scopolamine could help to prevent fistulas after parotidectomy, and to this end we retrospectively studied the records of all patients (n=645) who had benign parotid tumours treated by partial parotidectomy between 2011 and 2016. We found that scopolamine led to a significant decrease in the incidence of salivary fistulas from 54/371(15%) in the group not given it to 10/274 (4%) in the group given it (p<0.0001). The "number needed to treat" was 9...

Salivary duct injury can be idiopathic, iatrogenic, or post-trauma and may result in sialocele or fistula. Most injuries regress spontaneously and botulinum toxin A is one of several therapeutic possibilities. We report a case of iatrogenic injury to the parotid duct after Mohs' micographic surgery for a squamous cell carcinoma excision in the left jaw region, treated by injection of botulinum toxin type A. Although the fistula by duct injury can be self-limiting, botulinum toxin injection by promoting the inactivity of the salivary gland allows rapid healing of the fistula...

The goal of this case report is to describe an unusual case of recurrent first branchial cleft fistula with cysts and the effective surgical approach of complete removal with preservation of the facial nerve. A 27-year-old woman presented to our clinic after unsuccessful removal twice during the last 20 years. We have achieved satisfactory outcomes by using an approach to identify the facial nerve at the stylomastoid foramen with canal wall up mastoidectomy under a microscope. No sign of facial palsy, hearing loss, or recurrence were noted in postoperative follow-up...
