Such a study can provide a rationale for later allotransplantation procedures, along with implementation of conventional and advanced immunosuppression therapy. One week postoperatively, 99m Tc scintigraphy was performed and the uptake ratio and salivary excretion fraction were calculated. Intraoperatively, all glands showed patent blood perfusion except gland 5. Positive tracer uptake and saliva excretion were documented by scintigraphy.
The frequent use of animal models in biomedical research means that the anatomy or histology of the animals is constantly analyzed so the results obtained can be extrapolated to human tissues; therefore, knowledge of the structures studied is truly important. This study compares the human parotid gland to that of three animal species from a histological point of view. The anatomical relations of the parotid glands in the three species were the facial nerve, master muscle and mandibular ramus among other anatomical elements.
