Abstract

Purpose: To describe extracapsular dissection as a surgical technique in the treatment of tumors in the parotid gland.

Materials and Methods: A descriptive, retrospective and longitudinal study in patients with parotid neoplasms treated surgically with extracapsular dissection, within the period of November 2010 to April 2017 is presented.

Results: A total of 45 patients were included in the study, aged between 24 - 70 years with an average of 37.5 years and prevalence by the female gender. The pleomorphic adenoma was the most frequent benign pathology. The transient paresis of the VII pair in 2.2% of cases was the only complication. There was a recurrence rate of 0%.

Conclusion: The extracapsular dissection is a reliable surgical approach for parotid tumors, taking into account the low recurrence rate and minimal facial nerve injury.
