Nasolacrimal duct probing success

The aim of this study was to report the treatment effectiveness of primary probing in children with congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) and describe the factors relating to the failure of the procedure. This was a retrospective study of 62...

Dacryoendoscopy in congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction

This retrospective study demonstrates the role of dacryoendoscopy to identify causes of failed lacrimal probing in congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO). Dacryoendoscopy was carried out in 13 children with refractory CNLDO. The lacrimal pathway was examined from puncta to the...

Direct endoscopic probing for congenital lacrimal duct obstruction

The most common treatment for congenital lacrimal duct obstruction (CLDO) is probing, which is traditionally a blind procedure. Previous literature reports success rates between 78-92%. The authors of this retrospective non comparative case series reviewed the success rates of probing...

Biopsy of nasolacrimal duct using sheath guided dacryoendoscopy

In this study the author’s biopsied six eyes of five individuals with recurrent nasolacrimal duct obstruction following a prior dacryoendoscopic probing. All procedures were performed under local anaesthetic, the obstruction or lesion was directly visualised with dacryoendoscope and biopsy was...

Risk factors for surgical failure in nasolacrimal duct obstruction

This study considered possible associated patient anatomic or physiologic factors for initial surgical failure of nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO). This was a retrospective study analysing risk factors for patients with successful initial surgery in comparison to patients requiring multiple surgeries....

Nasolacrimal duct screening to minimise post cataract endophthalmitis

This case control study compared the nasolacrimal duct (NLD) patency in a random sample of phacoemulsification cataract surgery patients (control group) versus a consecutive series of patients who developed endophthalmitis post cataract surgery (case group). NLD syringing was performed in...

Amblyopia risk factors with nasolacrimal duct obstruction in newborns

This study compares amblyopia risk factors in 1) newborns with congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) and age-matched healthy controls, 2) newborns with unilateral and bilateral CNLDO and 3) affected eye and fellow eye of newborns with unilateral CNLDO. The authors...

Combination surgical management for congenital lacrimal duct obstruction

The authors aimed to report the clinical outcomes of antegrade balloon dacryocystoplasty (DCP) followed by pushed-type monocanalicular (MC), combined as a primary management for congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO). This was a retrospective study of 62 eyes (48 patients) with...

Endoscopic assisted probing for congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction

In this retrospective study authors compare the success rate of nasal endoscopic-assisted probing between younger (three years and below) and older (three years and above) children with membranous nasolacrimal duct obstruction and its correlation with the thickness of the membrane...

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...

Dacryocystosclerotherapy as an alternative to dacryocystectomy

In this article, the authors evaluate the role of sclerosing agents in dacryocystosclerotherapy (DCST) and aim to see whether it is an alternative to dacryocystectomy (DCT) in a specific group of patients. Thirteen lacrimal drainage systems of 10 patients with...

External dacryocystorhinostomy in the management of childhood epiphora

Congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction is thought to be caused by a membranous obstruction at the distal end of the nasolacrimal duct (NLD). Rarely, associated midline deformities in soft tissue and bony structures of the face are present in patients with...
