The holmium:YAG laser lithotripsy-a non-invasive tool for removal of midsize stones of major salivary glands.

Lasers Med Sci 2020 Nov 21. Epub 2020 Nov 21.

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Poznań University of Medical Sciences, Poznań, Poland.

Incorporeal lithotripsy by using holmium:YAG laser has been recently successfully spread and used in the treatment of urolithiasis. Although this method is not as common in salivary gland surgery, it is also recommended for endoscopic treatment of sialolithiasis. In this study, we decided to analyse effectiveness of holmium:YAG laser method among patients with midsize stones as the treatment in this particular population is still not determined and remains in dispute.

Familial risks in and between stone diseases: sialolithiasis, urolithiasis and cholelithiasis in the population of Sweden.

BMC Nephrol 2018 07 3;19(1):158. Epub 2018 Jul 3.

Center for Primary Health Care Research, Lund University, 205 02, Malmö, Sweden.

Background: According to the literature the three stone diseases, sialolithiasis (SL), urolithiasis (UL) and cholelithiasis (CL) share comorbidities. We assess familial and spouse risks between these stone disease and compare them to familial risks for concordant (same) stone disease.

Methods: Study population including familiar relationships was obtained from the Swedish Multigeneration Register and stone disease patients were identified from nation-wide medical records. Read More

Lack of evidence that nephrolithiasis increases the risk of sialolithiasis: A longitudinal follow-up study using a national sample cohort.

PLoS One 2018 26;13(4):e0196659. Epub 2018 Apr 26.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Hanyang University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Objective: The objective of this study was to evaluate the risk of sialolithiasis in nephrolithiasis patients.

Methods: Using data from the national cohort study from the Korean Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service, we selected 24,038 patients with nephrolithiasis. The control group consisted of 96,152 participants without nephrolithiasis who were matched 1:4 by age, sex, income, region of residence, diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. Read More

Familial Risks Between Urolithiasis and Cancer.

Sci Rep 2018 02 15;8(1):3083. Epub 2018 Feb 15.

Center for Primary Health Care Research, Lund University, 205 02, Malmö, Sweden.

Urolithiasis (UL, urinary tract stone disease) has been reported to increase subsequent cancers in the urinary tract. Recently, we showed data that surveillance bias may be an important confounder in the reported associations. In the present approach we want to address the question of possible cancer risk posed by UL mechanistically. Read More

Cystinuria: One Possible Reason for Kidney and Salivary Gland Lithiasis Relationship.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2018 May 22;76(5):1013-1015. Epub 2017 Nov 22.

Department Head, Aix Marseille University, Marseille, France; Surgery Department-Maxillofacial and Stomatology, Conception University Hospital, Marseille, France; and Laboratoire Parole et Langage, Aix-en-Provence, France.

Salivary gland lithiasis affects 1 to 2% of adults. The submandibular glands are concerned in 87% of cases. An association between kidney and salivary lithiases, although often mentioned, has rarely been observed. Read More

Local Response of Sialoliths to Lithotripsy: Cues on Fragmentation Outcome.

Microsc Microanal 2017 06 24;23(3):584-598. Epub 2017 Apr 24.

1CeFEMA,Instituto Superior Técnico,University of Lisbon,Av. Rovisco Pais,1049-001 Lisboa,Portugal.

Lithotripsy methods show relatively low efficiency in the fragmentation of sialoliths compared with the success rates achieved in the destruction of renal calculi. However, the information available on the mechanical behavior of sialoliths is limited and their apparently tougher response is not fully understood. This work evaluates the hardness and Young's modulus of sialoliths at different scales and analyzes specific damage patterns induced in these calcified structures by ultrasonic vibrations, pneumoballistic impacts, shock waves, and laser ablation.

Sialolithiasis is associated with nephrolithiasis: a case-control study.

Acta Otolaryngol 2016 25;136(5):497-500. Epub 2016 Jan 25.

e Sleep Research Center, Taipei Medical University Hospital , Taipei , Taiwan ;

Conclusions: This study demonstrates an association between sialolithiasis and nephrolithiasis. The results call for more awareness of this association among physicians and patients with nephrolithiasis.

Objective: Very few empirical studies have been conducted to explore the potential association between sialolithiasis and nephrolithiasis. Read More

Ultrastructural and elemental analysis of sialoliths and their comparison with nephroliths.

J Investig Clin Dent 2014 Feb;5(1):32-7

Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology, Mathikere Sampige Ramaiah Dental College and Hospital, Bangalore, Karnataka, India.

Aim: Sialoliths are common in the submandibular gland and its duct system, although their exact cause of formation is still a matter of debate. The aims of this study were to: (a) analyze sialoliths ultrastructurally, and to determine the role of foreign bodies or organic materials in the formation of sialolith nuclei; and (b) compare nephroliths with sialoliths ultrastructurally.

Methods: Three sialoliths and two nephroliths were analyzed ultrastructurally by a scanning electron microscope and X-ray diffractometer. Read More

Water: an essential but overlooked nutrient.

S M Kleiner

J Am Diet Assoc 1999 Feb;99(2):200-6

Nutritional Sciences Program, University of Washington, Seattle, USA.

Water is an essential nutrient required for life. To be well hydrated, the average sedentary adult man must consume at least 2,900 mL (12 c) fluid per day, and the average sedentary adult woman at least 2,200 mL (9 c) fluid per day, in the form of noncaffeinated, nonalcoholic beverages, soups, and foods. Solid foods contribute approximately 1,000 mL (4 c) water, with an additional 250 mL (1 c) coming from the water of oxidation. Read More

[Modulith SL 20. One-year urologic experience with a lithotripter of the third generation].

Urologe A 1994 Mar;33(2):167-71

Zentrum Chirurgie, Medizinische Hochschule Hannover.

The MODULITH SL20 combines on-line ultrasound and optional X-ray in series. In addition to highly simplified patient positioning and the possibility of handling the machine as a multipurpose lithotripter for disintegration of urinary-, gallbladder and bile duct stones and for treatment of pancreatic concrements this appliance can be used in cases of sialolithiasis and as a workplace for all urological purposes, so that the design is very modern. As the energy level in f2 can be extremely high, a disintegration rate of about was achieved for 70% ureteral stones in the middle and distal sections of the ureter. Read More

Scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray microanalysis studies of several human calculi containing calcium phosphate crystals.

Scanning Microsc 1994 ;8(2):241-56; discussion 256-7

Second Department of Oral Anatomy, School of Dentistry, Tokyo, Japan.

Human calcium phosphate calculi: two sialoliths, a urolith, a rhinolith, and a tonsillolith were investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy-dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX). The sialoliths and urolith had appositional shells with thick cortices, respectively, around several nuclei composed of calcospherulites and a rubber-film fragment. The rhinolith had a thin cortex with appositional laminations around a glomerulus-like mass of calcified cotton-like strings. Read More

Sialolithiasis. A survey on 245 patients and a review of the literature.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 1990 Jun;19(3):135-8

Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Hadassah School of Dental Medicine, Jerusalem, Israel.

245 patients with sialolithiasis, treated during a period of 20 years, were evaluated and the literature has been reviewed. The submandibular gland was involved in 231 patients, the parotid gland in 11 patients, and the sublingual gland only in 1 patient. There is some indication that patients with sialolithiasis are more prone to develop nephrolithiasis. Read More

[Administration of intracorporeal, laser-induced shock waves for the destruction of urinary calculi].

Urologe A 1989 May;28(3):145-7

Klinik für Urologie, Medizinische Universität zu Lübeck.

In spite of rapid developments in modern endourologic methods of urinary tract stone management, a definitive solution regarding the energy source for intracorporeal lithotripsy has not yet been found. Laser-induced shock wave lithotripsy is one of the most promising approaches. The evolution of this treatment modality within the last 4 years gives rise to the hope that a commonly accepted standard method will soon become available. Read More
