Resumen

VALLES GAMBOA, Moraima et al. Parotid nodules: experience in the Republic of Haiti. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2008, vol.47, n.4. ISSN 0034-7493.

INTRODUCTION. The diseases of the salivary glands occupy an important place among the surgical pathologies of the neck and the head. The aim of this paper was to present the experience of the surgical treatment of benign parotid tumors of the superficial lobule by local anesthesia in Haitian patients attended as part of the Cuban medical collaboration in this country. METHODS. A prospective study was carried out in patients with parotid nodules attended in the Republic of Haiti from 2005 to 2006. According to their nature, the nodules were grouped into inflammatory, neoplastic and others. Local anesthesia with lidocaine 1 % was used for the surgical treatment, combining the infiltrative method and the field block. 149 patients with parotid nodules were seen. The highest percentage corresponded to inflammatory processes (68.0 %). The presence of neoplastic nodules was confirmed in 29 patients (19.0 %). The complications were seroma (3 cases; 33.3 %) and hematoma (2 cases; 22.2 %). Four patients did not present complications. CONCLUSIONS. The surgical approach with local anesthesia proved to be a valid alternative when the surgeon does not have the resources that are usually used for the surgical treatment of these cases.
