    Abstract

    The routine use of neck drain in parotidectomy is common practice however, its benefit remains controversial. Drainless parotidectomy is a feasible approach with the intra-operative prophylactic use of a topical haemostatic agent and post-operative application of a pressure bandage The omission of routine drain insertion facilitates the same day discharge for suitable patients undergoing parotid surgery.
