Dilators, Surgical, Salivary Duct
Definition : Surgical dilators designed for mechanically augmenting the diameter (caliber) of the salivary duct during surgical procedures. These dilators typically consist of an instrument with an oblique distal end attached to a rigid rod of predetermined diameter to facilitate placement. They can also provide endoscopic access for stone removal; salivary duct dilators can be used for working under radiological guidance. Salivary duct dilators are mainly used during the treatment of salivary gland diseases.
