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. Obstruction of salivary secretion by a sialolith can result in sudden swelling and pain, as well as infection of the 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. One of three cases was recurred sialolithiasis with sialadenitis and was performed by the re-sialolithotomy and extraoral sialoadenectomy.
