BACKGROUND: Contamination of the conjunctiva in association with nasolacrimal duct obstruction is by all accounts a risk factor for infectious endophthalmitis post-cataract surgery. METHODS: All patients who underwent cataract day surgery routinely received nasolacrimal duct syringing with normal saline at the Wakayama Medical University Hospital, Japan, from 2011 to 2013. The microorganisms isolated from conjunctival swab samples of patients with occluded nasolacrimal ducts and their susceptibility to antibiotics, as well as the operation outcomes in all the patients were retrospectively investigated...

The etiology of primary nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) is unknown, and the disease may exist bilaterally in a small number of patients. Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery is the recommended treatment for these patients, but concomitant nasal pathologies are believed to be related to decreased surgical success. The authors aim to assess the concomitant required nasal surgical procedure frequency for endoscopic surgical access retrospectively in bilateral and unilateral NLDO patients. Twenty-eight patients who underwent bilateral endoscopic DCR simultaneously and 30 patients who underwent unilateral endoscopic DCR were enrolled in this retrospective study...

A 28-year-old Caucasian female presented with a six-month history of epiphora of the right eye. Diagnostic lacrimal syringing revealed obstruction of the right nasolacrimal duct. During external dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR), the lacrimal sac had an unusual papillary appearance. Frozen sections suggested malignant lymphoid cells. Pathologic examination revealed extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type. Imaging revealed a mass lesion centered on the lacrimal sac. The authors describe the youngest Caucasian patient with a primary NK/T-cell lymphoma of the lacrimal sac, as well as the first case presenting with epiphora as the sole presenting symptom, reported in the literature...

The traditional use of the Crawford tube for lacrimal intubation during dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) carries several drawbacks. We describe the use of the STENTube for DCR intubation and detail its advantages. Retrospective, noncomparative, interventional case series; 313 patients with nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) underwent 339 DCRs (216 external, 123 endonasal) with the STENTube from January 2007 - June 2013 by 5 surgeons (RS, QN, TS, SB, TN) across 3 institutions (SUNY Downstate Medical Center, Texas Oculoplastics Consultants, and Moorfields Eye Hospital)...

We reported a 6-year-old girl with a history of left-eye epiphora since 2 years ago who was referred to our nuclear medicine center for dacryoscintigraphy imaging. The scan showed obstruction in the proximal portion of the nasolacrimal duct in the left eye. Imaging also showed patent nasolacrimal duct of the right eye. Tc pertechnetate activity was seen in the esophagus and stomach owing to swallowing of the excreted tracer in the nasal cavity. This was an unequivocal sign of patent lacrimal apparatus.
