    Cervical schwannomas are rare, as fewer than 250 cases have been reported in the literature. The preferred method of removing a schwannoma is enucleation. Complications of schwannoma excision include Horner syndrome, firstbite syndrome, and Pourfour du Petit syndrome. These complications are...

    Interscalene block is commonly associated with reversible ipsilateral phrenic nerve block, recurrent laryngeal nerve block, and cervical sympathetic plexus block, presenting as Horner's syndrome. We report a very rare Pourfour Du Petit syndrome which has a clinical presentation opposite to that...

    Background The facial nerve should be sacrificed only if there is strong indication. Sometimes it is possible to sacrifice only part of the facial nerve and this termed "semiconservative parotidectomy". The commonest operation performed is superficial conservative parotidectomy, which is removal...

    Although salivary gland surgery for benign diseases is an integral part of clinical routine of head and neck surgeons, there is not many population-based data published on incidence and efficiency of this surgery. Parotidectomy was performed in 180 patients and submandibulectomy in 97 patients...

    PURPOSE: A clinical perspective study was designed for patients undergoing a modified parotidectomy to reduce complications of parotidectomy. METHODS: 110 patients were divided randomly into two groups; Group 1 (55 cases) was operated via routine surgical modality. Group 2 (55 cases) was treated...

    Objective: Extracapsular dissection (ECD) has become an accepted, less invasive alternative for the removal of select benign parotid lesions that may reduce complications. Minimal margin extracapsular dissection (MECD) with dissection on or closer to the tumor capsule may be a reasonable...

    BACKGROUND: Frey syndrome is a common complication that appears few months after parotid surgery with flushing and sweating of the parotid-temporal area during mastication. It presumably originates from an aberrant nervous regeneration in which the parasympathetic fibers of the parotid gland...
