Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has raised concern of viral transmission during otolaryngological procedures by means of droplets/saliva. The use of PPE and isolation settings are mandatory during surgery. This paper describes the development of the STAPID setting to reduce salivary spread during a sialendoscopy-assisted transfacial removal of a parotid stone.
