INTRODUCTION Neoplasms of the parotid gland are found in the deep lobe under branches of the facial nerve in approximately 20% of cases. These are most commonly resected through a transparotid approach, with careful dissection and preservation of the facial nerve. In the absence of preoperative facial weakness, the facial nerve can be spared in the majority of cases, even in the setting of malignancy. The intricate relationship between a deep lobe parotid mass and the overlying facial nerve… CONTINUE READING
