BACKGROUND: Epiphora has a significant impact on the patient's quality of life and is commonly caused by nasolacrimal duct obstruction. Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) has traditionally been performed via an external approach, which involves a skin incision. With the advent of endoscopes, the endonasal approach to DCR has gained significant popularity. METHOD: To prospectively compare the quality of life of adult patients who underwent either an endonasal or an external DCR for acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction, the Lacrimal Symptom Questionnaire (Lac-Q) was administered before and after surgery...

PURPOSE: To elucidate the mechanisms underlying nasolacrimal air regurgitation (AR) in the setting of continuous positive airway pressure therapy. METHODS: Twelve nasolacrimal systems of 6 fresh female human cadavers were evaluated individually for AR using continuous positive airway pressure therapy before any nasolacrimal procedure. Cadavers were then randomly assigned to undergo nasolacrimal duct probing or endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy and then each hemisystem was again evaluated for AR...

Background: Limited spatial nasal cavity in children, make pediatric dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) a difficult surgical procedure. We apply a limited approach to pediatric DCR and follow them for their consequences. Materials and Methods: An experimental study was done in pediatric DCR with limited approach (age < 14-year-old). After written consent, with general anesthesia, with nasal endoscopic surgery, lacrimal bone is exposed and extruded. In contrast with routine procedure, ascending process of maxillary sinus reserve; and marsupialization and wide exposure to lacrimal sac was done only by lacrimal bone defect; and cannulation preserve with temporary silicone tube...

To demonstrate the surgical technique and outcomes of double posterior based flap technique in primary endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) with and without use of powered instrument. 28 patients of nasolacrimal duct obstruction were included in the study from September 2012 to February 2015. All underwent endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy with double posterior based nasal and lacrimal flap technique. In patients of group A (14 patients), bone removal was done with the help of Smith-Kerrison punch forceps and in patients of group B (14 patients), powered drill has been used for the same...

Koebner phenomenon is the development of isomorphic pathologic lesions on a wound of a patient with preexisting cutaneous disease, most commonly psoriasis. An elderly male with palmoplantar psoriasis developed periocular psoriasis in the form of blepharitis and conjunctivitis following an external dacryocystorhinostomy as a manifestation of Koebner phenomenon. Immediate diagnosis and treatment with topical steroids led to complete recovery. Thus, the authors report the first case of Koebner phenomenon in ophthalmic literature, with a review of previously published postsurgical cases of Koebnerization in psoriasis patients...

Mitomycin-C (MMC) is the most frequently used agent for prevention of excessive scarring at the osteotomy site after endoscopic endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy (EEDCR), which, however, being applied during the final stage of the surgery, shows questionable effectiveness. AIM: to evaluate the effectiveness of a new administration route of mitomycin C in EEDCR. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included 86 patients (95 cases) in the age range of 62.3±9 years with primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction...

A 42-years-old male presented with left medial canthal swelling, accompanied with only mild epiphora. There was no history of dacryocystitis, mid-facial trauma, surgery, or bloody tears. On examination, there was an immobile, subcutaneous, non-inflammatory mass below the medial canthal tendon. Lacrimal irrigation showed blockade at the nasolacrimal duct. A computerized axial tomography (CAT) scan revealed a non-enhancing, low-density, cystic lesion at the inferomedial margin of the orbit. There were no signs of bony erosion, consistent with idiopathic acquired dacryocystocele...

Importance: Endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (EN-DCR) is emerging as the preferred procedure in the management of nasolacrimal duct obstructions. However, its safety and long-term efficacy in the setting of acute dacryocystitis with lacrimal sac abscess have not been well studied. Objective: To compare outcomes of EN-DCR as primary treatment with EN-DCR as a secondary treatment after percutaneous drainage of lacrimal sac abscess in acute dacryocystitis. Design, Setting, and Participants: This randomized clinical trial was conducted from October 1, 2012, to October 31, 2015, at a tertiary ophthalmic center...

BACKGROUND: Lymphomas of the lacrimal sac are rare, accounting for less than 10% of lacrimal sac malignant tumours. They may present with symptoms typical of secondary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction and are thus often misdiagnosed. METHODS: Case series and literature review. RESULTS: Herein we describe 3 cases of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL)/small-cell lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) of the lacrimal sac with immunohistochemical and in 1 case molecular confirmation...

Today's gold standard in the treatment of infrasaccal primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction (PANDO) is external dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR), a relatively invasive procedure that can be performed after failure of recanalizing treatments. However, with progress in the field of diode laser technology, new approaches have emerged. Laser-assisted transcanalicular DCR with subsequent bicanalicular silicon intubation is a new option showing great promise as a viable minimally invasive procedure. Under permanent endoscopic visual control from the nasal cavity, a diode laser fiber is inserted into the lacrimal sac and laser energy is applied to create a bony ostium between the lacrimal sac and the nasal cavity...

PURPOSE: The aim is to compare the outcome of nonendoscopic endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy (NEN DCR) with external DCR (EXT-DCR) in the treatment of nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) in children. METHODS: A retrospective, comparative chart analysis of all consecutive children <16 years after EXT-DCR or NEN-DCR between June 2012 and February 2016. RESULTS: Seventy-one children (79 eyes) underwent DCR in the study, of which 37 children (40 eyes) underwent EXT-DCR and 34 (39 eyes) NEN-DCR...

PURPOSE: To determine if patients with primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction (PANDO) have an increased prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) compared to the general population. METHODS: Cross-sectional case-control study. The Mayo Clinic Reflux Disease Questionnaire (RDQ) is used to help physicians diagnose GERD. The retrospective group consisted of patients who previously had a dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) over a 4-year period by one surgeon (JTH) at one institution...

OBJECTIVE: We investigated the effect of using indocyanine green (ICG) gel, a mixture of ICG and Viscoat, on complete removal of the medial wall of the lacrimal sac as well as the success rate of endoscopic endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) for primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction. METHODS: Consecutive cases of endoscopic endonasal DCR between January and December 2010 were included in a retrospective, comparative manner. A total of 91 patients with primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction were enrolled...

INTRODUCTION: Epiphora affects approximately 20% neonates, but most resolve spontaneously. Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) is indicated only when conservative management fails. OBJECTIVE: To observe clinical presentation, treatment modalities and effectiveness of endoscopic DCR in paediatric population. METHODS: It is a prospective study of 21 children done at our tertiary care hospital from 2011 to 2016. All were initially subjected to a trial of conservative management...

INTRODUCTION: Endonasal DCR is safely performed in children presenting with persistent epiphora, not responding to conservative management. The surgical technique of endoscopic DCR in the paediatric age group essentially remains the same as that performed in adults, but children have narrower nasal passages and relatively larger inferior turbinates which limit the surgeon's working space. The standard 2.7 mm paediatric nasal endoscope gives a smaller surgical work field as compared to the 4 mm adult endoscope...
