Abstract

The Sialolithiasis is one of the most common disease that is found in the submandibular gland and they can be usually observed in the extra glandular area. As the lumen of Wharton's duct is larger and more expandable than that of Stensen's duct, the symptom of them is initially painless. As increasing their size, the sign and symptom are pain and sudden enlargement of gland. It can be observed with clinical exam and the scintigraphy. After removal of sialoliths, the majority of them can get the recovery of function. Our department performed the transoral sialolithotomy and the extraoral sialoadenectomy for three patients of sialolithiasis and all of them showed no complication after operation.
