Historically, disorders of salivary glands tend to be 'underdiagnosed and overtreated'. In the vast body of literature on this subject, emphasis has usually been put on therapeutic modalities of various diseases of the salivary glands. Whereas therapy and pathology have been treated in numerous thorough studies, the (patho )physiology of the salivary glands has remained rather poorly understood. Even less attention has been given to the diagnostic methods. Until a few decades ago, diagnosis consisted mainly of a clinical examin ation which included the patient's history, inspection, and palpation. These methods remain crucial, but a variety of new diagnostic tools have appeared since then. Their clinical value is still subject to controversy; each method has its advocates and opponents. The indications for enrolling a patient at a given point in a series of diagnostic procedures are interpreted differently. One of the most striking examples is the use of sialography. This has become a classic diagnostic procedure. Although sialography is still a useful method, it has considerable disadvantages, limitations, and even contraindications. In the major teaching hospitals, residents still tend to consider sialography as a panacea for the majority of their diagnostic problems, whereas the infor mation provided is actually rather restricted. Other modern methods such as CT and MRI have taken over the role of sialography to a certain extent. This also applies to ultrasonography and scintigraphy. Moreover, microbiol ogy, sialometry, sialochemistry, cytology, and histopathology may give super ior information in certain cases.

Co-edited by Eugene N. Myers, a world-famous expert in the field, this has got to be the last word on salivary gland disorders. The disorders themselves cover a broad array of diseases, both benign and malignant. Thus, the contents of this book have been organized to reflect the diverse nature of salivary gland anatomy, physiology, and dysfunction in various states of disease. In this way, the evolution of the field and its diagnostic and therapeutic management are better demonstrated. Covering everything from practical diagnosis to gland tumor therapy, this really is a crucial work for any surgeon working in the facial or neck regions.

In the past several decades, the medical community has witnessed professionals, instead of generalizing their knowledge, specialize in a specific area of practice. Head and neck surgery have thus become a major specialty within the surgical domain, and the management of specific gland disorders encompasses a broad array of both benign and malignant diseases. Diagnostic Techniques and Therapeutic Strategies for Parotid Gland Disorders is a collection of innovative research on the clinical and diagnostic techniques as well as several therapeutic strategies of parotid gland disorders. Serving as a quick reference and practice manual, the book addresses a wide range of topics including embryological development and anomalies, histology and surgical anatomy, physiology, parotid gland evaluation, xerostomia, traumatic injuries and fistulae, calculi, sialosis, sialadenitis, cysts and tumors of the parotid gland, and the various techniques and potential complications of parotidectomy including Frey's syndrome, in addition to extra-temporal facial nerve reconstruction procedures. It is ideally designed for medical professionals, surgeons, researchers, academicians, and medical students.

This atlas provides a comprehensive outline of all but the very rarest salivary gland diseases, detailing the most common benign and malignant tumors with their radiological, cytopathological, and histological features. The differential diagnosis of each tumor is presented with essential tips on the use of fine needle aspiration (FNA) and making a correct diagnosis. Three separate chapters are dedicated to: introduction to salivary gland FNA with emphasis on the technique used to perform the aspiration; the surgical anatomy of these glands; and the various radiological characteristics of these lesions, including primarily CT scans and MRI studies.
