Obstructive sialadenitis is most commonly due to salivary stones and traditional surgery has been limited to open or transoral stone extraction, or removal of the affected gland with the potential for nerve injuries, persisting symptoms, or poor cosmesis.
Sialoendoscopy is a minimally-invasive technique using advanced precision instruments to navigate the salivary ducts and deal with all causes of salivary obstruction.
Performed as a day-stay procedure, it permits glandular preservation in 80-85% of patients with stones, and significantly improves quality of life in patients with autoimmune or RAI induced sialadenitis.
