Sublingual gland excision for the surgical management of plunging ranula.

Am J Otolaryngol 2018 Sep - Oct;39(5):497-500. Epub 2018 May 26.

Department of Otolaryngology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Boston, MA 02114, United States; Division of Head and Neck Surgery, Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Boston, MA, 02114, United States. Electronic address:

Objective: A plunging ranula is a pseudocystic collection of mucin extravasated from the sublingual gland into the floor of mouth and through the mylohyoid muscle into the neck. While the lining of a ranula is non-secreting and resection of the sublingual gland is adequate for simple sublingual mucoceles, many surgeons attempt to address plunging ranulas with extensive transoral and transcervical dissections. We review our experience managing plunging ranulas with intraoral sublingual gland excision and ranula drainage alone. Read More

Plunging Ranula in a 78- year- old Male - a Rare Case Report.

J Clin Exp Dent 2018 Jan 1;10(1):e92-e95. Epub 2018 Jan 1.

Professor, Department of Oral Pathology and Microbiology, Tamilnadu government Dental College and Hospital, Chennai, India.

The term Ranula is a Latin word meaning frog. It refers to a bluish translucent cystic lesion in the floor of the mouth resembling the underbelly of a frog. Ranulas can be true cysts occurring due to ductal obstruction of the sublingual gland or a minor salivary gland or a pseudocyst as a result of ductal injury leading to extravasation and accumulation of saliva in the surrounding tissues.

Evolution of the management of ranulas: change in a single surgeon's practice 2001-14.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2016 Nov 25;54(9):992-996. Epub 2016 Jul 25.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, 3(rd) Floor, Bermondsey Wing, Guy's Hospital, London, SE1 9RT. Electronic address:

Excision of the sublingual gland is the traditional cure for ranulas, but is invasive with considerable morbidity. We report techniques that have been developed to minimise this by targeting their specific pathophysiology, which include an intraoral approach to plunging ranulas, and gland-preserving selective excision with a highly conservative suture technique for simple ranulas. Fifty-four ranulas in 53 (20 male and 33 female, mean age 29 (range 7-57) years) consecutive patients were treated by a single surgeon between 2001-14 and their records reviewed retrospectively.

Recurrent sublingual ranula or saliva leakage from the submandibular gland? Anatomical consideration of the ductal system of the sublingual gland.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2015 Apr 22;73(4):675.e1-7. Epub 2014 Oct 22.

Assistant Professor, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, The 3rd Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University, Hefei, Anhui, China.

Purpose: Some believe that the recurrence of sublingual ranula results from incomplete removal of the sublingual gland (SLG), but recurrence remains in some patients who undergo repeated excision of the remnant SLG, and the final solution to the recurrence is to remove the ipsilateral submandibular gland (SMG). In the authors' experience, preoperative aspirate from a sublingual ranula was a thick mucus-like fluid resembling egg white, whereas that from recurrent cyst after removal of the SLG was thin serous fluid. Based on the difference of the aspirated fluids, the authors speculated that the recurrent cystic mass might not be a ranula, but rather iatrogenic saliva leakage from the SMG through the previous surgically damaged excretory duct of the SLG (Bartholin duct) that opens into the SMG duct (Wharton duct).

Case Rep Pediatr 2014 3;2014:831923. Epub 2014 Dec 3.

Department of Emergency Medicine, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32610, USA.

A plunging ranula is a soft-tissue mass stemming from a mucous extravasation cyst of the sublingual gland which can herniate through the mylohyoid muscle. We describe a case in which a 14-year-old girl presented with a rapidly expanding mass on the floor of her mouth affecting her ability to swallow and speak and causing tracheal compression. The patient was initially managed conservatively with antibiotics and steroids; however, the mass continued to expand necessitating emergent bedside incision and drainage and subsequent surgical intervention.

What is new in management of pediatric ranula?

Curr Opin Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2014 Dec;22(6):525-9

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery/Head and Neck Tumor Surgery, College of Stomatology, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, Shaanxi, P.R. China.

Purpose Of Review: Ranula is extravasation mucocele arising from the sublingual gland, influencing the swallowing or eating; this review focuses on the most recent literature pertaining to pediatric ranulas and aims to comprehensively describe the methods of diagnosis and management approaches.

Recent Findings: Ranulas consist of intraoral ranula and plunging ranula, which are frequently misdiagnosed, so it is vital for the differential diagnosis of pediatric ranulas to depend on the clinical examination, imaging and fine-needle aspiration cytology. Pediatric patients should first be observed for 6 months before other treatments. Read More

Anaesthetic management in a case of huge plunging ranula.

Anesth Essays Res 2014 Jan-Apr;8(1):114-6

Departments of Anaesthesiology and Critical Care, Bankura Sammilani Medical College and Hospital, Bankura, West Bengal, India.

Plunging ranula is a rare form of mucous retention cyst arising from submandibular and sublingual salivary glands, which may occasionally become huge occupying the whole of the floor of the mouth and extending into the neck, thus, restricting the neck movement as well as disfiguring the normal airway anatomy. Without fiberoptic assistance, blind or retrograde nasal intubation remains valuable choices in this type of situation. Here, we present a case of successful management of airway by blind nasal intubation in a patient posted for excision of a huge plunging ranula. Read More

Authors:
R O'Connor M McGurk

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2013 Nov 29;42(11):1469-74. Epub 2013 May 29.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Guy's, King's and St. Thomas' Hospitals, London, UK.

Plunging ranulas arise when a simple ranula extends beyond the floor of the mouth into the neck. Diagnosis is difficult even with modern imaging techniques as they mimic other neck lesions, and traditional treatment involves enucleation of the cyst from the neck. Despite this invasive surgery they tend to recur. Read More

Imaging Sci Dent 2013 Mar 11;43(1):55-8. Epub 2013 Mar 11.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology and Dental Research Institute, School of Dentistry, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea.

A ranula is a bluish, transparent, and thin-walled swelling in the floor of the mouth. They originate from the extravasation and subsequent accumulation of saliva from the sublingual gland. Ranulas are usually limited to the sublingual space but they sometimes extend to the submandibular space and parapharyngeal space, which is defined as a plunging ranula. Read More

Postmortem investigation of mylohyoid hiatus and hernia: aetiological factors of plunging ranula.

Clin Anat 2013 Sep 27;26(6):693-9. Epub 2013 Jan 27.

Department of Oral Pathology, King's College London Dental Institute at Guy's, King's College and St Thomas' Hospitals, London, England.

The mylohyoid hiatus and hernia were discovered in the nineteenth century and were considered to explain the origin of the plunging ranula from the sublingual gland. This formed the rationale for sublingual sialadenectomy for the treatment of plunging ranula. However, a more recent, extensive histological investigation reported that hernias contained submandibular gland, which supported an origin of the plunging ranula from the submandibular gland and submandibular sialadenectomy for the treatment of plunging ranula.
