Session Code: PS117
Title: Contemporary Management of Salivary Gland Disease Sialendoscopy and Beyond
Date and Time of Session: Monday, October 17: 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Description: Surgeons are frequently challenged with the timing of surgery for chronic inflammatory conditions of major salivary glands. Traditional therapy has consisted of timely waiting until severity justified surgical excision. New endoscopic ductal technology has evolved in the last decade which permits surgeons to endoscopically visualize the ducts of diseased salivary glands. Furthermore, new devices have been developed which allow surgeons to endoscopically ablate or retrieve obstructive ductal pathology. In this panel, experts will provide an overview of theses contemporary and therapeutic strategies for chronic salivary disorders. Furthermore video-based cases will be presented to highlight the utility of this new technology.
