Recurrence and complications of ranula
Lakiere, Eva / Schepers, Serge / Vrielinck, Luc / Lambrichts, Ivo / Politis, Constantinus
Management of the ranula is controversial. There are several different options, each with advantages and disadvantages. A retrospective patient file analysis of 35 cases treated in our hospital showed that excision of the ipsilateral sublingual gland with ranula excission (true cyst) or with evacuation of the ranula (pseudocyst) is first choice treatment for oral and plunging ranula.
