Objectives. To analyze the possibility of using the technique of intraoperative ultrasound navigation on surgical treatment of patients with salivary stone disease of the parotid salivary gland (PSG).
Material and methods. A retrospective analysis of three medical records of an in-patient treated at the department of maxillofacial surgery and operative dentistry in Gomel Regional Clinical Hospital during the period from 2019 to 2021 for salivary stone disease of PSG was made.
Results. The results of clinical observation of treatment of a patient with sialolithiasis of the parenchymal part of the PSG are presented. Taking into consideration the complexity of surgical removal of sialolites of this localization, the patient was initially treated conservatively which was of no effect. Salivary stones were removed using intraoperative ultrasound navigation which made it possible to successfully perform the surgical intervention, reduce surgical trauma, create conditions for structural and functional recovery of the PSG and reduce the possibility of the disease relapse by improving intraoperative visual control.
Conclusions. The use of the technique of intraoperative ultrasound navigation in the surgical treatment of patients with salivary stone disease of the parotid salivary gland allows to remove the concrement, minimizing the trauma to the tissues of the operated area and the organ itself, maintaining adequate blood flow and architectonics in it, which enables the reduction in the number of postoperative complications, relapses of the disease and positively affects the quality of patients’ life.
Key words: salivary stone disease, parotid salivary gland, surgical treatment, intraoperation sonography navigation.
