Morbidity study of submandibular gland excision.

Abstract

Submandibular gland excision is an operation frequently performed by many different surgical specialists. It is often associated with a variety of postoperative complications, the commonest being neurological deficits related to damage to the marginal mandibular, lingual or hypoglossal nerves. Other patients develop further problems at a later date due to the development of calculi from gravel retained in the duct remnant. This study aims to discuss how these complications can be avoided.
