Chapter 25 examines in particular the role of miniature Dormia baskets, which have a metal mesh basket array that is enclosed in a fine hollow catheter that is deployed by manipulating a slider mechanism at the end of the catheter. They may be deployed and guided to capture a salivary stone by either direct vision using sialendoscopy or interventional sialographic imaging
