DOI : 10.5606/tjvs.2019.63 Salivoma is an extremely rare pathology after carotid artery surgery. The presence of a high amylase level (85 U/L) in the drainage fluid is pathognomonic for the diagnosis. Reducing glandular secretion by anticholinergic drugs is quite useful for the treatment of salivoma. Keywords : Anticholinergics; carotid artery surgery; salivoma
