Abstract


Surgical access for tumors found on the floor of the mouth represents a challenge for surgeons due to its location. Different tech-niques have been described for this type of tumors (transcervical, transmandibular, transparotid, transoral), however, sometimes they have anatomical limitations. The purpose of this study is to describe a modified labiomandibuloglossotomy approach through a case report of a 36-year-old male diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma on the floor of the mouth. Performing this technique allows more exposure for the resection of these tumors, without damaging the adjacent anatomical structures. Previous planning and respect for facial aesthetic subunits as references for surgical incisions optimize the aesthetic results and wound healing when performed appropriately. The proper selection of the patient, exposure, modification of the surgical technique and its complications will be discussed.
