Parotid organ tumors account for around 2% of head and neck tumors and 75% of them are kind. Surgery is the most treatment for benign parotid tumors and the foremost imperative thought is total evacuation of the tumor to dodge repeat and useful conservation of the facial nerve .Facial loss of motion (FP) is one of the foremost visit and genuine complications after parotid surgery [1]. In spite of awesome enhancement in surgical aptitudes, the rate of postoperative facial nerve harm remains tall, extending from 21% to 65% .Indeed temporal FP can cause extreme physical and mental inconvenience in patients .The most reason for FP is broad expulsion of the ordinary parotid organ and introduction of the facial nerve .In this manner, it is vital for specialists to plan an ideal surgical program, which ought to be the one that has negligible negative affect on facial nerve work. The so-called individualized parotidectomy in our ponder alludes to the choice of surgical strategies agreeing to distinctive conditions of the patients [2]. Within the current think about, we reflectively checked on 154 patients who experienced individualized parotidectomy for primary benign parotid neoplasms. The most objective of this think about was to assess the part of individualized parotidectomy within the treatment of essential generous parotid tumors to decrease the rate of postoperative facial loss of motion. Between September 2010 and December 2017, patients who experienced parotidectomy for essential kind parotid neoplasms at the Division of Verbal and Maxillofacial Surgery of the Primary Subsidiary Clinic of USTC were reflectively surveyed [3]. To dodge predisposition, successive patients who treated amid this period and satisfied the consideration criteria were included.

The inquire about complied with the Code of Morals of the Affirmation of Helsinki. Due to the review nature of this ponder, it was allowed an exception in composing by the nearby morals committee. Patients who had facial loss of motion preoperatively, had facial schwannoma, aggravation and repetitive tumors were avoided from the think about. Determination was based on ultrasonography, Computed Tomography (CT), Fine Needle Desire Cytology (FNAC), and intraoperative solidified section [4]. The taking after statistic and clinical information were recorded: persistent age, sexual orientation, tumor area, tumor estimate, strategy of facial nerve dismemberment, surgery time, surgery degree,

and histological conclusion. Based on tumor area relative to the facial nerve, the parotid organ is partitioned into the profound flap and the shallow projection .In our inquire about, the shallow projection of the parotid organ was subdivided into three parts: the front tragus (AT), second rate ear cartilage (IE) and Parotid Tail (PT) Tumor estimate was assessed by measuring the plainly visible example. Surgery time was calculated from entry point to skin suture. The patients were beneath common anesthesia with a adjusted Blair entry point. Dismemberment through the skin and sub-SMAS rise of skin folds were schedule and the back department of the incredible auricular nerve was protected. Hemostasis was accomplished with bipolar diathermy. Three surgical degrees, counting add up to parotidectomy (TP), Shallow Parotidectomy (SP) and fractional shallow parotidectomy (PSP), were performed taking after distributed rules. TP alludes to total facial nerve dismemberment and expulsion of the total sidelong projection of the parotid organ. SP implies total dismemberment of the facial nerve and expulsion of the shallow horizontal flap of the parotid organ. PSP is characterized as resection of the tumor with suitably 0.5- to 1-cm tumor-free edges of typical parotid tissue dismemberment of the facial nerve and its department. Extracapsular dismemberment (ECD) remains questionable and isn't routine in our division [5]. The facial nerve was protected beneath an operation magnifying instrument, counting antegrade dismemberment (Advertisement) and Retrograde Dismemberment (RD). The antegrade approach was from the trunk of the facial nerve, and the number of facial nerve branches that required to be dismembered depended on the area and estimate of the tumor.
