PURPOSE: To survey the management of congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) by pediatric primary health care providers in Spain. METHODS: This was a descriptive study using a web-based questionnaire to evaluate the perceptions of the members of the Pediatric Primary Care Society in Castilla-León, Spain (APAPCYL), regarding management of CNLDO. The questionnaire contained 14 direct questions and was sent by e-mail to all the pediatricians. All the responses were analyzed by the frequency of occurrence and percentages...

The etiology of primary nasolacrimal duct obstruction is largely unknown, and this disease may occur bilaterally in a small percentage of patients. In this retrospective study, the authors aimed to discuss the cost, operation time, complications, and success rate of simultaneous bilateral endonasal endoscopic surgery. Twenty-eight patients (16 female, 12 male) were enrolled in this study, with a mean age of 55 years old (range: 43-76). The success rate was 91% (51/56), and the mean operation time was 44 minutes...

PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to assess practice patterns on the use of intraoperative Mitomycin-C (MMC) and lacrimal stents (intubation) in dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) for nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) among oculoplastic surgeons in India. The survey was aimed at obtaining data on the duration of stent placement and specifics regarding MMC usage namely, concentration and duration of application. METHODS: A survey that included questions on the management of lacrimal disorders was sent in April 2015 to members of the Oculoplastic Association of India, through an email communication...

AIM: To evaluate the surgical scars of external dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) cosmetically. METHODS: Totally 50 consecutive cases of primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction (PANDO) were included in the study. Surgical scars were assessed by the patients and two independent observers at 2, 6 and 12wk postoperatively on the basis of visibility of the scars and still photographs respectively and were graded from 0-3. Kappa test was utilised to check the agreement of scar grading between the two observers...

INTRODUCTION: Secondary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction (SANDO), where the obstruction is caused by a known process, is becoming more commonly treated by endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (endoDCR). This study evaluates outcomes of endoDCR for cases of SANDO in comparison to endoDCR outcomes treating primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction (PANDO). METHODS: All patients undergoing endoDCR from 2006 to 2015 at a tertiary referral center were reviewed for etiology of nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) and success of procedure...

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.

PURPOSE: The incidence of acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) increases with age. Dacryocystorhinostomy, the definitive treatment for NLDO, has a high success rate (80%-100%) with a low complication rate (1%-6%), but surgical outcomes have not been reported previously specifically for an elderly population, in which there may be increased risk for intraoperative and postoperative complications. The purpose of this study was to examine surgical outcomes and complication rates of dacryocystorhinostomy in an elderly population...

Linear scleroderma is a localized variety of scleroderma characterized by fibrotic areas of the dermis involving head region without systemic features. Ocular involvement has been sparsely reported in the form of episcleritis, dry eye, and uveitis. We describe a 42-year-old man with linear scleroderma, en coup de sabre type with associated nasolacrimal duct obstruction and prolonged dacryocystitis.

AIM: To investigate the clinical outcomes of different intubation techniques in the cases of failed primary probing. METHODS: This retrospective study was performed on 338 patients with the diagnosis of congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction with age 1-4y that had failed primary probing. Intubation was performed under light sedation in operating room and the stent was left 3mo in place. Clinical outcome was investigated 3mo after tube removal. RESULTS: Bicanalicular intubation method had higher complete and relative success rates compared to monocanalicular intubation (P=0...

Background: To explore the prevalence of lacrimal duct obstruction in patients with infectious keratitis, and the necessity of lacrimal duct dredge in the treatment of human infectious keratitis. Methodology/Principle Findings: The design is prospective, non-control case series. Thirty-one eyes from twenty-eight continuous patients with infectious keratitis were included in this study. The presence/absence of lacrimal duct obstruction was determined by the lacrimal duct irrigation test. The diagnosis of infectious keratitis was made based on clinical manifestations, cornea scraping microscopic examination and bacterial/fungus culture...

The main purpose of this paper is to provide the information about the incidence and types of pathology of secondary acquired obstructions of the lacrimal excretory outflow system caused by primary lacrimal sac non-neoplastic and neoplastic lesions. After a thorough literature search, 17 case-control studies were found and selected, data were extracted and categorized, to evaluate specific lacrimal sac pathology mimicking inflammation. A total of 3865 histopathologically examined lacrimal sac wall biopsy specimens from 3662 patients, taken during dacryocystorhinostomy for clinically presumed primary chronic dacryocystitis, were analyzed...

The objective of the study was to compare the success rate of transcanalicular laser dacryocystorhinostomy (TCL-DCR) with or without the use of adjunctive mitomycin C (MMC) in cases with primary nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO). This retrospective study was comprised of 68 patients with uncomplicated primary NLDO. There were two groups in the study: the Group 1 (n = 35) patients underwent TCL-DCR surgery with MMC and the Group 2 (n = 33) patients underwent TCL-DCR surgery without MMC. All patients had bicanalicular silicone tube intubation...

PURPOSE: Evaluation of efficiency, complications, and advantages of pushed monocanalicular intubation using Masterka(®) tube versus simple probing in patients with congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO). PATIENTS AND METHODS: This is a case-controlled study that included 60 eyes (of 53 patients); 30 eyes underwent probing and 30 eyes intubation using the Masterka tube as a primary treatment for CNLDO. The children were aged between 6 months and 36 months at the time of surgery, with no previous nasolacrimal surgical procedure, and had one or more of the following clinical signs of nasolacrimal duct obstruction: epiphora, mucous discharge, and/or increased tear lake...
