Abstract

Submandibular gland excision is traditionally performed via a trans-cervical approach. While generally regarded as a relatively simple surgical procedure, several complications are possible, including injury to the marginal mandibular branch of the facial nerve, lingual nerve, hypoglossal nerve, facial artery and a visible unsightly neck scar or keloid. The trans-oral route has the ability to eliminate a cervical scar and decrease risk of injury to several structures. Coincident with the development of the trans-oral approach, robotic surgery has been gaining popularity in the operative management of early oral cavity, tonsil, and tongue base malignancies. A 51-year-old female presented to our institution with a 15-year history of recurrent left submandibular gland sialoadenitis. She previously underwent a rhytidectomy with cervicoplasty and was interested in a trans-oral approach to avoid a neck incision. Here we present a novel application of the da Vinci Surgical Robot for trans-oral removal of the submandibular gland.
