Does mitomycin C improve success rates in DCR surgery?

The authors present a meta-analysis of the use of mitomycin C (MMC) as an adjunct in dacrocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery. Fifteen randomised control trials were included. There was a degree of heterogeneity in the surgical technique used, however, the MMC is...

Success rates of primary and revision transcanalicular DCR surgery

Transcanalicular laser DCR is a relatively rare procedure compared to more conventional external or endo-nasal techniques. In this article the authors examine the outcomes of revision surgery following failed transcanalicular diode laser dacryocystorhinostomy (TCDL DCR), comparing a conventional external revision...

Apr/May 2014 Quiz 1

History A 45-year-old man presents with left-sided epiphora. During a dacrocystorhinostomy (DCR), the wall of the lacrimal sac was noted to be bulky. The sac wall is biopsied and sent for routine histopathology examination. The pathologist notes a distinctive feature...

Results of STENTube for lacrimal intubation

The STENTube is designed with a varied diameter – a thin central segment with a diameter of 0.86mm and distal tube segments with larger 1.3mm diameter. The thin central segment is exposed at the medial canthus. The distal tubes tamponade...

Clinical outcomes of endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy

The aim of this study was to report the authors’ experience with endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (ED) in a paediatric population and to evaluate the effect of surgical site reassessment on anatomy and clinical outcomes. The study included 47 children <18 years...

Manometric tear duct irrigation system against the conventional lacrimal syringing

The authors assessed the lacrimal outflow resistance with a modified irrigation system. The manometric tear duct test (mTDT) comprised of a 6mm thin wall 25 gauge lacrimal cannula which was attached to a bag of normal saline by standard fluid...

Transcanalicular diode laser-assisted DCR: success rates and factors for success

This study aimed to evaluate the success rates of transcanalicular diode laser-assisted dacryocystorhinostomy (TCL-DCR) during three years of follow-up and to find clinical factors that influence surgical outcomes. Major outcomes were defined as a patent neo-ostium tested by irrigation (anatomical...

One-week intubation in external dacryocystorhinostomy

Whether to routinely intubate or not in dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery has been a subject of controversy among lacrimal surgeons. Similarly, if intubated the timing of removal of stent is not standard. Here, the authors carried out a survey of their...

Developments in oculoplastic surgery

A study of NHS practice demonstrated significant patient-reported quality-of-life improvements from commonly performed oculoplastic operations: entropion repair, ectropion repair, ptosis repair and dacrocystorhinostomy (DCR) [1]. In recent years, surgical and non-surgical approaches to functional and aesthetic oculoplastic surgery have advanced...

Video Atlas of Oculofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

The second edition Video Atlas of Oculofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery by Korn and Kikkawa provides an overview of traditional and contemporary reconstructive and cosmetic eyelid, lacrimal and orbital surgical procedures. The book includes of 1600 intraoperative illustrations, in addition...

Acute dacryocystic retention

This is a retrospective study of patients with acute dacryocystic retention (ADR). The condition is distinct from infectious dacryocystitis, and is characterised by an acute onset of pain and epiphora associated with a tender but not inflamed lacrimal sac thought...

The Lacrimal System Diagnosis, Management and Surgery (Second Edition)

The lacrimal drainage apparatus is an intricate conduit, the function of which depends on a complex interplay of its morphology and physiology. This book enhances our understanding of the disorders of the nasolacrimal system, their diagnosis, management and the surgical...
