Sialoendoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure in which a small camera is placed into the salivary gland through the mouth.
Although the procedure is usually done in the operating room, no cuts on the skin are required.
The procedure is most commonly done to treat stones and ductal narrowing.
When used to treat stones, sialoendoscopy is combined with a laser to break the stone into pieces, which can then be removed.
When used to treat ductal narrowing. sialoendoscopy can be used to dilate or widen the ducts.
Sialoendoscopy may not be the ideal procedure for all salivary gland disorders, but is an effective way to manage certain conditions.
