Segmental superficial parotidectomy in the surgical treatment of benign parotid tumours

  • E Eski (a1), M F Sökmen (a2) and I Yilmaz (a2)

Abstract

Objective:

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of segmental superficial parotidectomy in the surgical treatment of benign parotid tumours.

Methods:

Patients who underwent parotidectomy for benign primary parotid tumours limited to the superficial lobe were retrospectively reviewed. Tumour location, size, surgical procedure, follow-up period, complications and recurrence rates were noted.

Results:

The study included a total of 39 patients: 22 underwent segmental superficial parotidectomy (group 1) and 17 underwent superficial parotidectomy (group 2). The mean follow-up period was 41.79 months (range, 13–85 months). There were no recurrences in either group during the follow-up period. No significant differences were found between the two groups in terms of tumour size, complications or recurrence rates.

Conclusion:

Segmental superficial parotidectomy is a safe and effective option in the surgical treatment of benign parotid tumours.
