Background: Parotidectomy has well-documented post-operative complications. Dissection of the facial nerve branches can be challenging even under loupe magnification, and partial, or complete injury of the nerve branches can occur during surgery. To reduce this risk and the associated complications, we propose a number of microsurgical best practices, which can be performed during parotidectomy.
