Abstract

A review of the more common inflammatory and neoplastic conditions affecting salivary glands has been presented. The use of hydration, massage, antibiotics, and steroids is effective initial treatment for suppurative sialadenitis and usually negates the need for surgical drainage. Total excision of the salivary gland and its duct is necessary in procedures for recurrent infection. Our technique for closure of the floor of the mouth after excision of the submandibular gland and Wharton's duct is described. Salivary neoplasms involving the parotid gland, the submandibular gland, and minor salivary glands are treated on the basis of their histologic and local findings. Stepwise illustrations of our technique of parotidectomy and surgical considerations, including the counseling of a patient with a parotid mass, are presented to assist surgeons who care for patients with salivary disorders.
