Reports concerning surgical techniques to help combat the problem of drooling not only are new and limited, but few contain postsurgical follow-up information. In this study, the parents of parotid duct transplant patients rated or described particular aspects of their child's drooling or conditions associated with the drooling before and after surgery. Specific presurgical lingual patterns of these patients, as noted from cinefluorography analysis, are also reviewed.
