Efficacy and Safety of Inhalation Sedation during Office Probing for Congenital Nasolacrimal Duct Obstruction.

J Clin Med 2021 Apr 20;10(8). Epub 2021 Apr 20.

Department of Ophthalmology, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul 05505, Korea.

We compared the effectiveness of inhaled sevoflurane versus physical restraint during probing in children with congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO). We performed a retrospective review of children with CNLDO who underwent office probing procedures by a single surgeon under sedation or restraint. Patients' characteristics at the time of probing, including age, sex, laterality, previous non-surgical treatment, presence of dacryocystitis, outcomes of probing, and complications were compared between the sedation and restraint groups.

Extension of Masses Involving the Lacrimal Sac to Above the Medial Canthal Tendon.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2021 Feb 11. Epub 2021 Feb 11.

Adnexal Service, Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, United Kingdom.

Purpose: Retention mucoceles of the lacrimal sac almost always expand below the medial canthal tendon (MCT), whereas the very much rarer malignancies involving the lacrimal sac may progress to form a mass above the tendon. In this study, the incidence of malignancy was determined for patients with a preoperative decision to undergo biopsy for a clinically-suspect, hard lacrimal sac mass, together with the proportion having a tumor extending above the MCT.

Methods: Patients thought-on the basis of having a firm, immobile mass centered on the lacrimal sac fossa-to possibly have lacrimal sac malignancy were identified from a database of biopsies between 1989 and 2020. Read More

Evaluation of ostium size following endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy as a predictive factor of outcome: A prospective study.

J Fr Ophtalmol 2021 Mar 30;44(3):397-403. Epub 2020 Dec 30.

Ophthalmology department, Metz-Thionville regional hospital center, Mercy hospital, 1, allée du Château, CS 45001, Metz cedex 03, France.

Introduction: Endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) is a surgical procedure that aims to increase tear drainage to treat epiphora caused by nasolacrimal obstruction by creating a bypass through the bone between the lacrimal sac and the nasal cavity. A silicone stent is temporarily put in place for 2 months to avoid early obstruction of the rhinostomy. One of the causes of surgical failure is related to progressive stenosis of intranasal ostium, due to fibrosis and new bone growth, inducing a relapse of epiphora and/or dacryocystitis. Read More

Dacryoendoscopy for dacryocystitis management in a dog: A case report.

Vet Med Sci 2020 Dec 16. Epub 2020 Dec 16.

Department of Veterinary Ophthalmology, College of Veterinary Medicine, Konkuk University, Seoul, Korea.

A castrated, mixed-breed, 10-year-old male dog developed a skin fistula from a ruptured periorbital swelling on the right eye; the patient was successfully treated with dacryoendoscope-guided cannulation using a nasolacrimal tube. On presentation, computed tomography with concurrent dacryocystography (CT-DCG) revealed obstruction of the right nasolacrimal duct and abnormal flow of contrast agents towards the root of tooth 109 at the right maxillary bone; however, the origin of the fistula remained unclear on CT-DCG. Dacryoendoscopy was used to confirm the physical association between the fistula and the nasolacrimal duct; the fistula end was found to be near the right upper gum mucosa around tooth 107.

Vestn Oftalmol 2020 ;136(6):78-83

Research Institute of Eye Diseases, Moscow, Russia.

Studying the pathogenesis of concrements formation in lacrimal ducts is of fundamental and practical importance. This article attempts to analyze available information related to the pathogenesis of this phenomenon, provides information on the etiopathogenesis, physical and chemical properties of concrements obtained from horizontal and vertical parts of the lacrimal duct, and considers in detail bacteriological and mycotic composition of concrements, as well as various theories of their formation. The analysis helped justify the need to separate the concrements formed in the horizontal and vertical parts of the lacrimal ducts on the basis of differences in their pathogenesis. Read More
