Golovko T.S.

Summary. Salivary stone disease of submandibular salivary gland is the most common non-cancer diseases of human’s salivary glands. So important is the issue of non-invasive intraoperative radiation control of concrement removal process and examination of condition of the gland and its duct immediately after surgery. The aim of our study was to determine the possibilities of ultrasonography as a method of intraoperative radiation control at removing calculus from the submandibular salivary glands and their excretory ducts. The study included 10 clinical cases of salivary stone disease of submandibular salivary glands. After analyzing the sources of professional information and basing on our previous positive experience, for all patients during the removal of salivary was used intraoperative ultrasonography. Intraope­rative radiation control gives the doctor the opportunity to review areas of intervention directly during operation. This increases accuracy and precision interference and reduces the risk of possible errors or postoperative complications.
