Treatment of ranulas. Ranulas present as a painless cyst on the floor of the mouth. They present in varying sizes, ranging from the small ranula on the floor of the mouth to large plunging ranulas that extend through to the neck. Treatment options vary depending on the size of the ranula and the operative techniques Ranulas are benign fluid collections near the mouth which can be effectively treated with our percutanous treatment but also with traditional surgical approaches. Both appraches offer permanent removal of the ranula and resolution of symptoms. We feel our percutanous approach offers a less invasive treatment for this benign condition Intracystic injection of OK-432 was developed as a therapy for operatively difficult lymphangioma (cystic hygroma) and is currently becoming a treatment of first choice for this disease. We tried this therapy in 32 patients with ranula (oral floor type in 21 cases and plunging type in 11 cases). Disappearance or marked reduction of the lesion was. The criterion standard for treatment of ranulas is excision of the sublingual gland. This removes the source of the mucus and thus significantly decreases the risk for recurrence. [ 18 ] A review..

Treatment of a ranula Small, simple ranulas that don't cause problems may not require treatment. Some cysts may disappear on their own. Treatment is necessary, however, for enlarged simple ranulas, especially when swelling interferes with swallowing or speaking, and for most plunging ranulas Oral ranulas are cysts in the floor of the mouth that result from the extravasation of mucous. Historically there has been little consensus on the ideal first-line treatment, but currently, definitive treatment involves excision of the sublingual gland, which can injure the lingual nerve and submandibular duct
The ranula is a form of mucocele which specially occurs in the floor of the mouth. Several surgical techniques had been introduced to treat intraoral ranula. Marsupialization, excision of the sublingual gland or combined excision of both the ranula and the sublingual gland have been used with variable success rates. Th HIV-associated salivary gland disease refers to the pathology in head and neck lesions such as ranula, salivary gland swelling, xerostomia, and benign lymphoepithelial cysts in the parotid gland. Here, we present a unique case of the ranula patient with HIV infection treated with OK-423 sclerotherapy 5-Surgical Treatment of Ranula. INTRODUCTIONhe term ranula generally applies to a bluish, translucent cystic mass in the floor of the mouth. .1 It is derived from the Latin word rana, meaning ''frog'' as the shape of the cyst resembles the bulging underbelly of a frog. 2 There are two different types of ranulas depending on the pathogenesis: It. The authors present a case series report on the use of carbon dioxide laser treatment for ranula and a literature review of cases treated using carbon dioxide laser. The authors' experience and reports in the literature indicate that carbon dioxide laser excision of ranula is safe with minimal or no recurrence There is a consensus about the appropriate treatment of ranula. The best treatment for a plunging ranula is excision of the lesion along with the involved gland (usually sublingual gland)
A ranula is a mucus-filled salivary pseudocyst in the floor of the mouth .A ranula arises from a salivary gland or duct after trauma or blockage .Ranulas most commonly originate from the sublingual gland, but they can also arise from the submandibular gland .A simple or intraoral ranula is located within the floor of the mouth while a plunging or cervical ranula extends inferior to the. A ranula by definition is a mucus filled cavity, a mucocele, in the floor of the mouth in relation to the sublingual gland [1, 2]. The name ranula has been derived from the Latin word rana which means frog. The swelling resembles a frog's translucent underbelly or air sacs
Treatment and prognosis: The preferred treatment of the ranula is controversial. The most debated element is whether the ranula itself should be removed. Some practitioners believe the ranula should be removed; some believe that the gland needs to be removed along with the ranula (although removal of the salivary glands may risk nerve damage) Primary treatment of pediatric plunging ranula with nonsurgical sclerotherapy using OK-432 (Picibanil). Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol . 2008 Sep. 72(9):1405-10. [Medline] Treatment options for a ranula include draining the cyst, removing the cyst itself, or removing the cyst and the blocked gland. Each option has varying odds of recurrence. When the cyst is drained, recurrence of the ranula is high. When the cyst alone is surgically removed, recurrence remains high . Ranula is a fluid collection or cyst that forms in the mouth under the tongue. It is filled with saliva (spit) that has leaked out of a damaged salivary gland. Salivary glands are small structures around the mouth which make saliva
Objective: Although surgery is the first choice of therapy for ranula, it was made a hypothesis that ranula can be primarily treated with sclerotherapy from prior evidence. This study examined the effectiveness of intracystic injection of OK‐432 for treatment of ranula. Method: This prospective clinical study comprised a total of 26 patients with ranula (19 intraoral type; seven plunging. Abstract: Objectives: Intralesional injection therapy with OK-432 was developed as a treatment modality for operatively difficult lymphangioma and is currently becoming a first choice treatment of this disease.The aim of this article was to evaluate the outcome and complications of the treatment of patients with ranula by OK-432 therapy.

Comment on J Oral Maxillofac Surg. 2007 Jan;65(1):79-82 Ranula is a mucous extravasation cyst which appears as a swelling in the submental and submandibular regions. Several surgical techniques to manage ranula have been described in the literature, these techniques include the CO2 laser radiation excision. Four patients were treated for intraoral ranula in the floor of the mouth by marsupialization with carbon dioxide laser radiation with. Treatment and prognosis. Surgical resection is curative but requires not only excision of the cystic component but of the parent sublingual gland as well. If the gland is left in situ, the ranula may recur 5. This was highlighted by Parekh et al. 3,who observed the following recurrence rates: incision and drainage: 70% recurrenc
For simple (non-plunging, non-recurrent) ranula an alternative to resection of the sublingual gland (usually requiring a general anesthetic) is an effort at marsupialization with recognition of the high recurrence rate that may lead to more definitive treatment (Schwanke et al 2013) OK-432 is used as a chemotherapeutic agent in the treatment of cancer. Since 1987, however, it has been successfully used as a sclerotherapy agent in the treatment of cystic pathologies. A cystic malformation, known as ranula, is very common in the head and neck region. For this reason, sclerotherapy with OK-432 started to be used in the treatment of ranulas in the 1990s. At the first patient ranula grow to a large size and the treatment became by removal of the ipsilateral sublingual and submandibular glands, while at second and third patient by removal of sublingual gland only. Conclusion: There is a consensus about the appropriate treatment of ranula. The best treatment for a plunging ranula is excision of.
Intracystic injection of OK-432 was developed as a therapy for operatively difficult lymphangioma (cystic hygroma) and is currently becoming a treatment of first choice for this disease. We tried this therapy in 32 patients with ranula (oral floor type in 21 cases and plunging type in 11 cases). Disappearance or marked reduction of the lesion. marsupilization is suitable and effective treatment for intraoral ranula.

Treatment for a simple ranula involves excision of the lesion. Another method is simple marsupialization or incision of the cyst creating a pouch and suturing of the ranula followed by packing of the entire cyst cavity with gauze for 7 days to 10 days. This technique is not widely accepted because the recurrence rate is high in large. A ranula is a mucus retention cyst or pseudocyst caused by leakage of mucus from the sublingual gland and generally occurs in the oral floor. In addition, drug induced hypersensitivity syndrome (DIHS) is a rare but well-recognized serious adverse effect characterized by fever, skin rashes, generalized lymphadenopathy, hepatitis, and hepatosplenomegaly and oral stomatitis CONCLUSIONS: On the basis of our experience, sclerotherapy with OK-432 was a safe and effective primary treatment for a ranula in children. Further study will be needed to conclude its long-term effectiveness. AB - OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of treatment of a ranula in children by intralesional injection of OK-432
A ranula is an extravasation pseudocyst arising from the sublingual salivary gland. The classic ranula presents as a blue-domed, translucent swelling in the floor of the mouth. The term ranula is derived from the Latin word rana, meaning frog, and describes a blue translucent swelling in the floor of the mouth reminiscent of the underbelly of a. Medical treatment of the mucocele depends on the severity of the cyst that has developed. If you have a superficial cyst (not too deep), the chances are that it may resolve on its own.

The aim of this study was to analyze a group of 124 surgically treated patients with intraoral ranula to assess 3 different methods: sublingual gland removal combined with the ranula excision, conventional marsupialization, and a variant of the marsupialization technique usually performed.
The treatment of choice is removal of the sublingual gland combined with excision of the ranula, especially in cases of large oral and plunging ranula. 1-5 Many surgeons still prefer to initially treat ranula by marsupialization, perhaps because of potential surgical injury to the lingual nerve and submandibular salivary duct when removing. Based on a review of literature by Patel, the average rate of recurrence for oral ranula after simple or modified marsupialization is 20%. Excision of the ipsilateral sublingual gland along with the ranula has been demonstrated to be the most definitive treatment with the lowest rate of recurrence Different methods of treatment for ranulas have been reported in the literature with varying results. These include marsupialization, incision of the ranula and drainage, excision of the ranula and excision of the sublingual gland with drainage of ranula fluids.1,3,4,8-10 Zhao et al9 reviewed 580 treated ranula and found .

A salivary mucocele, or sialocele, is a collection of saliva that has leaked from a damaged salivary gland or salivary duct, and has accumulated in the tissues. This is often noted as a fluctuant, painless swelling of the neck or within the oral cavity. While often inaccurately called a salivary cyst, mucoceles are lined by inflammatory tissue (called granulation tissue) which is secondary to. In case of simple ranula, swelling is confined to the sublingual gland. In case of plunging ranula, it may lead interfere with speech, chewing, swallowing and breathing as well. ( tracheal compression) Diagnosis . CT SCAN/ MRI; What Dr. Mankads' Homeoclinic believe about the Role of Homoeopathic treatment If the swelling exist only in the mouth, then it is called a Ranula (the intra-oral bulge resembles the underbelly of a frog). If the swelling extends into the neck, then it is called a Plunging Ranula (diving frog belly). It is formed because of the blockage of the duct or the opening that brings saliva into the mouth during feeding A plunging or diving ranula is a rare mucous fluid collection in the submandibular or parapharyngeal space resulting from damage or rupture of one or more ducts of the sublingual gland. An accurate diagnosis and an appropriate treatment plan are fundamental for a successful treatment of ranulas Thirty two patients were retrospectively studied regarding treatment method namely, excision of the ranula, marsupialization, excision of the ranula combined with sublingual gland removal, recurrence and complications. All available specimens were histologically studied. There were 25 female and 7 male patients. The mean age was 13.5 years
What is Ranula? A ranula is a mucus extravasation cyst involving a sublingual gland and is a type of mucocele found on the floor of the mouth. Ranulae present as a swelling of connective tissue consisting of collected mucin from a ruptured salivary gland caused by local trauma. Treatment: A marsupialization technique was used to manage this ranula We have treated seven patients with a plunging ranula during the past 10 years. All patients underwent surgery via a cervical approach. In two, the ranula reached the anterior neck by passing through a dehiscence in the mylohyoid muscle, while in the other five the plunging ranula passed posteriorly to the mylohyoid muscle Treatment of Salivary Mucocele in Cats. Treatment may include: Periodic lancing or drainage of the mucocele. Unfortunately, this usually results in recurrence. Definitive treatment is by surgical drainage of a ranula or pharyngeal mucocele or by excision of the affected salivary glands and ducts for cervical or zygomatic mucoceles
What causes a ranula to develop? Sometimes, the cause of a ranula is unknown and the swelling occurs spontaneously. In other cases, ranulas occur after trauma to the floor of the mouth (like an oral surgery). An injury can damage the ducts that move saliva from the salivary gland into the mouth, causing a blockage Male to female ratio was 1:1.3 for ranula and for KS was 1:0.6. Ranula was predominant in the 0-10 year age group (73.5%) while KS was most common in the 21-40 year age group (76.4%). Ranula and KS both had a marked rise in prevalence from 1992 to 2003.

Ranula of infant patients was rare. Few studies have described the approach toward management in infant patients. METHODS: Eleven infant patients were treated for intraoral ranulas. The methods of treatment included aspiration of mucus, marsupialization and excision of the ranula and the ipsilateral sublingual gland Mucocele Treatment. A mucocele is a mucus cyst produced by extravasation of salivary secretion due to the rupture of a salivary gland duct, or salivary retention within an accessory salivary gland.
5 The diagnosis, treatment planning and management of ranula is typically determined by a combination of history, clinical condition, histopathological appearance, and imaging studies.This paper presents management of large sized ranula in 8-year-old child with combination therapy of intra-lesional corticosteroid and micro-marsupialization A mucous cyst often can be left alone. It usually will rupture on its own. If the cyst returns, it may need to be removed. To remove a mucocele, the provider may perform any of the following: Freezing the cyst (cryotherapy) Laser treatment. Surgery to cut out the cyst. A ranula is usually removed using laser or surgery .

Two variants have described in the literature: simple oral ranula and the deep diving or plunging ranula A ranula is a mucocele of the sublingual gland (Figure 2). The term 'ranula' is derived from its close appearance to a 'frog's belly'. Treatment involves removal of the sublingual gland as marsupialisation or incision and drainage alone leads to unacceptably high recurrence rates. A ranula can develop into a large lesion many centimeters in diameter, with resultant elevation of the tongue and possibly interfering with swallowing (dysphagia).
