Abstract:

Objective: To explore the role of lingual frenectomy in the treatment of ranulas. 
Methods: In this study, we retrospectively reviewed 45 patients with ranulas accompanied by short lingual frenulum, they were randomly assigned to the frenulum correction group(n=24) and the control group (n=21). The following data were obtained, including age, sex, site of ranula, preoperative period of observation, diameter of ranula, duration of follow-up and the results.
Results: Our results demonstrated that the mean age of the patients was 13.6 ± 2.56 years. Among 24 cases treated by frenulum correction, 15 ranulas had a full regression of the lesion after one month. 9 ranulas had no change after frenulum correction. By comparison, in the control group, only 5 cases were disappearance. There was significant difference between two groups (p < 0.05).
Conclusion: The findings indicated that increased tongue movement after lingual frenulum surgery is beneficial to the disappearance of ranulas, and lingual frenectomy is an adjuvant approach in the treatment of ranulas adjacent to lingual frenulum.
