Abstract

Several conditions such as age, gender, systemic diseases, smoking, consuming vitamin rich foods, denture wearing may play a role in aetiology of sublingual varices. However, few studies investigating these associations. Nevertheless, prevention of potential bleeding of sublingual varices especially in patients in antithrombotic therapy should led clinicians to treat them by diode laser, since it allows a minimally invasive treatment of photocoagulation. We report on a large sample of patients (706) showing single or multiple SVs on antithrombotic therapy, highlighting the possibility to treat lesions without drug discontinuation and without intra- and post -operative complications. KEY WORDS: Antithrombotic therapy, Bleeding, Diode laser photocoagulation, Sublingual varices.
