Management of chronic parotitis: a review

, : Management of chronic parotitis: a review. Journal of Laryngology and Otology 117(7): 521-526

Chronic parotitis is an insidious inflammatory disorder, which is characterized by a recurrent, often painful, swelling of the gland or glands. Sialography remains the investigation of choice. Diagnostic siladenoscopy may complement or supersede sialography as the diagnostic procedure of choice, as more experience is gained in this technique and its use becomes more widespread. The management options are conservative or surgical, but controversy exists regarding the timing and method of surgical intervention. The surgical methods that have been described include injection of methyl violet - a sclerosing agent, ductal ligation, ductoplasty, tympanic neurectomy, and parotidectomy. Parotidectomy is considered the ultimate surgical option but because of its significant morbidity the exact technique and procedure that should be used remains contentious.

Motivation: We consider the problem of clustering a population of Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) data samples using similarity based clustering methods. A key requirement for clustering is to avoid using the noisy aberrations in the CGH...

Together with the stochasticity of single-spike events in cortex, this appears to imply that large po...
