In this study the authors, making use of a non-surgical therapeutic method like extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, aim to show the advantages of this method compared with surgery, in the therapy of lithiasis of the salivary glands. Seven patients suffering from calculi of the salivary glands were treated. The authors obtained the best result in each patient and in 5 of these obtained the complete disappearance of sialolithiasis. The authors, considering that there is an ever higher number of requests for this treatment, put extracorporeal lithotripsy in the foreground in the therapy of sialolithiasis.
