  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Benign tumours account for 80% of case histories with a relationship 1:4 M/F, the most frequent being pleomorphic adenoma (57.3% of cases), followed by Warthin's tumour (32.4%), this rating not having been confirmed in case histories (8-10%) in the literature.
  • Surgical treatment of benign tumours consisted, in 50% of cases, in superficial paroditectomy and in approximately 30% of total paroditectomy.
  • For malignant neoplasms, total parotidectomy was performed in approximately 50% of cases, while in the remaining 50% an almost equal rate of superficial parotidectomy was carried out and enlarged parotidectomy, with or without sacrificing the facial nerve, which was rebuilt in 60% of cases.
  • Oncological results obtained were compared with those reported in the literature: in fact for all benign neoplasms relapse ratings are about 5%, while for malignant tumours the worst prognosis was in squamous cell carcinoma with median of 37.7 on survival and metastasis rate of 16.5%.

  • [Title] Facial nerve schwannoma.
  • PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to summarize the current literature on facial nerve schwannoma and make practical recommendations based on best practices for the management of this difficult but benign neoplasm.
  • RECENT FINDINGS: Facial nerve schwannoma can be asymptomatic or can present with progressive or acute facial nerve palsy.
  • The tumor is usually slow-growing and can involve multiple segments of the nerve.
  • Radiographic imaging and facial nerve electrical testing can be helpful in treatment planning.
  • Future adjunctive therapies to improve facial nerve function may include electrical stimulation, steroid hormones, and possibly stem cell therapy.
  • SUMMARY: Treatment of facial schwannoma is individualized based on patient symptoms, history, and clinicoradiographic evaluation.
  • As the tumor can involve multiple segments of the nerve, the surgeon attempting removal should be familiar with modern neurotological surgical techniques.
  • Ongoing translational research will hopefully allow us to decrease facial nerve morbidity in these patients.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Intraparotid facial nerve schwannoma: management options.
  • Intraparotid facial nerve schwannoma (FNS) is a very rare, benign tumour mimicking pleomorphic adenoma.
  • Resection of this slow growing tumour may result in unnecessary facial nerve paralysis.
  • The aim of this study is to present results of facial nerve schwannoma treatment at our institution and proposes a management plan.
  • Two patients had facial weakness and underwent superficial parotidectomy, resection of tumour and facial nerve repair with a free graft from the greater auricular nerve.
  • All tumours were confirmed histologically as facial nerve schwannomas.
  • Patients with resection of facial nerve schwannoma had a postoperative House Brackmann grade III and IV.
  • Patients with biopsy had normal postoperative facial nerve function and the tumour did not grow significantly.
  • There is no preoperative diagnostic modality that can identify facial nerve schwannoma with certainty.
  • Difficulty in locating the facial nerve intraoperatively raises suspicion of a neurogenous tumour of the facial nerve and this may prevent unnecessary damage to the nerve.
  • Not every facial nerve schwannoma should be resected.
  • This decision is based on (a) the extent of tumour (b) preoperative facial nerve function (c) best results achieved with nerve repair and (d) patient's preferences.
  • Large tumours with extension into the mastoid cavity or encroachment of sensitive structures and preoperative facial weakness are indications for surgical intervention.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Facial nerve function after parotidectomy for neoplasms with deep localization.
  • PURPOSE: To determine whether the deep location of a parotid gland neoplasm is specific risk factor for facial nerve paralysis after parotidectomy.
  • METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 88 patients, including 59 with a benign superficial neoplasm of the parotid treated by superficial parotidectomy (group 1); 5 with a benign deep neoplasm treated by total parotidectomy (group 2); 20 with a malignant superficial neoplasm treated by total parotidectomy (group 3); and 4 with a malignant deep neoplasm treated by total parotidectomy (group 4).
  • RESULTS: Temporary facial nerve paralysis developed in 10.3%, 20%, 10%, and 50% of groups, 1, 2, 3, and 4, respectively.
  • Permanent facial nerve paralysis developed in 0%, 0%, 10% and 50% of groups 1, 2, 3, and 4, respectively.
  • CONCLUSION: The risk factor associated with nerve damage resulting from surgery for parotid neoplasms were malignancy and deep localization.
  • However, the deep location of a benign tumor was not a major risk factor for permanent paralysis.

  • RESULTS: Final diagnosis of recurrent pleomorphic adenoma causing compression of the facial nerve at the stylomastoid foramen.
  • CONCLUSION: Facial nerve weakness caused by a benign salivary gland tumor is rare.
  • Although alternate diagnoses must be considered, recurrent pleomorphic adenoma alone may impair facial function by impinging on the nerve in the stylomastoid foramen.

  • Although the presenting features suggested malignancy in some cases, overall they were nonspecific, overlapping with the presentation of benign disease.
  • The facial nerve was resected en bloc with the tumor in nine cases and immediately reconstructed with good reanimation results in patients with recent-onset facial paresis.
  • Given that incomplete tumor resection was the most important prognostic factor, a high index of clinical suspicion, radical ablative surgery, and immediate soft-tissue and nerve reconstruction for proven cases are advocated.

  • [Title] Superficial parotidectomy versus retrograde partial superficial parotidectomy in treating benign salivary gland tumor (pleomorphic adenoma).
  • PURPOSE: Of all benign salivary gland tumors of the parotid gland, pleomorphic adenoma (mixed tumor) is the most common.
  • It accounts for 60% to 70% of all benign tumors of the parotid gland.
  • This neoplasm arises in patients in the fourth to sixth decade of life, with a female predominance.
  • The goal is to avoid facial disability yet attain complete resection without perforation of the capsule/pseudocapsule.
  • We also made clinical records of temporary or definitive injury to the facial nerve, which branches of the facial nerve were temporarily or definitively injured, the occurrence of Frey syndrome, esthetic satisfaction, and the amount of recurrence or infection after surgery.
  • There was a significant difference (P = .0003) in facial nerve injuries: 39% of patients did not report any facial deficit in the SP group compared with 90% in the PSP group.

  • [Title] Primary malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour in the temporalis muscle.
  • INTRODUCTION: Primary malignant neoplasms of nerve sheath origin are rare, highly aggressive tumours that account for no more than 5% of all soft tissue sarcomas.
  • In the head and neck where the great majority of peripheral nerve neoplasms are benign, as in the rest of the body, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumours (MPNSTs) are unusual lesions.
  • DISCUSSION: The clinicopathologic properties of this neoplasm have been widely discussed and the emphasis is on the need for its early identification since the tumour's non-specific symptoms may result in delayed diagnosis and treatment.

15. Johnson JT, Ferlito A, Fagan JJ, Bradley PJ, Rinaldo A: Role of limited parotidectomy in management of pleomorphic adenoma. J Laryngol Otol; 2007 Dec;121(12):1126-8

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • There is continued controversy over the extent of parotidectomy required for removal of a benign pleomorphic adenoma from the parotid gland.
  • Currently, consensus exists that the integrity of the facial nerve must be preserved when the tumour is totally removed.
  • As a result of experience gained in the first half of the twentieth century, it was recommended that superficial parotidectomy with facial nerve dissection should be the minimal biopsy for pleomorphic adenoma.
  • Since that time, however, research has indicated that partial parotidectomy or extracapsular dissection of benign pleomorphic adenoma can be accomplished with preservation of the facial nerve without an increase in tumour recurrence.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - After Surgery.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Pleomorphic adenoma represents a most common benign neoplasm of major salivary glands.
  • Most occurrences of this benign tumor in the submandibular gland have been treated surgically without difficulty via transcervical approach.
  • However, a few clinical problems in the transcervical approach have been mentioned, such as nerve injury or aesthetic scaring.
  • Early postoperative morbidity developed, such as a temporary paresis of lingual nerve and a temporary limitation of tongue movement, but recovered within a short-term period.
  • We propose that the benign mixed tumor of the submandibular gland could be removed easily via intraoral route without an external scar or nerve injury.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: Surgical techniques for parotid gland neoplasm removal have been shaped over the years by the importance of the gland's relationship with the facial nerve, histologic behavior of parotid tumors, and recurrence rates from specific techniques.
  • Parotidectomy with facial nerve dissection has become the procedure of choice in removal of parotid gland neoplasms because of the resulting low recurrence rate.
  • Pathology of the parotid tumors consisted of 11 pleomorphic adenomas, six Warthin's tumors, six benign epithelial cysts, one sarcoid lesion, two lymphoid hyperplasia, and one Kaposi's sarcoma.
  • There was no temporary or permanent facial paralysis and no incidence of Frey's syndrome.
  • CONCLUSION: We advocate extracapsular dissection for benign parotid neoplasms because of the acceptable recurrence rates with limited complications as compared to superficial parotidectomy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: The frequency of incidence of benign tumours was 90% and the most frequent histopathological diagnosis was pleomorphic adenoma (49%) and adenolymphoma (42%).
  • The most frequent complication was sensory deficit about the cheek and ear (35%), temporary facial nerve paresis (5%), hematoma (1%), salivary fistula (1%).
  • Using the microscope during parotidectomy is extremely useful in order to preserve the continuity of the facial nerve branches.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: One hundred sixty-six PPS masses were identified: 21 (12.7%) were malignant, 145 (87.3%) were benign, 76 (45.8%) were vascular, and 69 (41.6 %) involved the skull base.
  • To identify the facial nerve, 20 transparotid-transcervical approaches (13.6%) were performed.
  • Expected neurologic sequelae resulted from cranial nerve involvement by tumor.
  • CONCLUSION: Careful patient assessment and surgical techniques allow the oncologically safe removal of benign, vascular, and skull base PPS tumors.

  • Acute and chronic sialadenitis, different benign and malignant neoplasms are the common causes which present with salivary gland swelling.
  • Pre-operative core needle biopsy is hazardous and may damage facial nerve, lead to fistula formation or associated with tumour seeding.
  • Among these 3 cases, 2 were adenoid cystic carcinoma which was cytologically diagnosed as benign neoplasm (monomorphic adenoma).
  • This study corroborates well with other studies including immunohistochemical findings. p53 expression was found to be related with nature of the neoplasm.
