Abstract

Salivary flow rate and bacterial colonization of the parotid main duct were investigated in 17 patients referred for sialography and in 10 healthy controls. Cultures in the controls were negative whilst the patient group revealed bacterial colonization of the main duct, especially in those with the lowest flow rates. The implications of this finding in patients at high risk of endocarditis who will be undergoing sialography are discussed.
