The Schaitkin™ Salivary Duct Cannula is designed for the short-term intubation of the salivary ductal system and to hold open the ductal tissue. The tube is more than sufficient length for most patients. The cannula is placed at the end of the procedure when the surgeon is concerned about the healing of the salivary papilla or Wharton’s or Stenson’s duct. The Ultra-smooth Plus® coating will lessen the chance of scar tissue and closure of the papilla or duct.
Patients who have had more than basic dilation of the papilla may benefit from short term intubation to allow for drainage of the salivary duct. The cannula can also be placed via a sialodochotomy. Patients who have had parotid procedures done externally may have a retrograde insertion.
