The parotid duct (Stenson's duct) can be damaged during traumatic injuries and surgical interventions. Early diagnosis and treatment of a duct injury is of great importance because complications such as sialocele and salivary gland fistula may develop if the duct is not surgically repaired. We think that the feeding tube is an ideal material in the parotid duct repair because of its technical characteristics, availability, and low cost. In this article, we described the use of a feeding tube for the treatment of a parotid duct rupture in a facial stab wound laceration, as it is a low-cost and easy-to-access material readily available in every operating room.
