[Importance of submandibular salivary glands for organism].


Based upon analysis of postoperative morbidity the authors concluded that salivary glands extirpation led to considerably often development of different gastrointestinal tract diseases in comparison with other operative interventions. The most often (62%) these diseases appeared in patients with submandibular salivary gland removal in anamnesis and rarer (21%) - with parotid salivary gland removal. So it could be claimed that salivary glands were an important constituent part of digestive system. Salivary glands removal was only proper in case of impossibility of carrying organ preserving operative intervention.
