Benign tumors, in-situ carcinomas and small carcinomas of the anterior floor mouth or of the internal surface of the cheek may require resection of salivary duct papilla i.e. papilla of submandibular duct or Stensen's duct. If a lymph node dissection is not required, excision of submandibular or parotid duct which papilla is interested in the resection can be avoided using a surgical technique not reported. The authors present two cases illustrating a simple surgical proceeding of salivary duct resection/transposition. The present method can be used to keep a functional principal salivary gland with an optimal oncologic result.
