Various modifications of a vascularized nasoseptal flap for repair of extensive skull base dural defects.

J Neurosurg 2019 Feb 8:1-9. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

OBJECTIVEEndonasal surgery of the skull base requires watertight reconstruction of the skull base that can seal the dural defect to prevent postoperative CSF rhinorrhea and consequent intracranial complications. Although the incidence of CSF leakage has decreased significantly since the introduction in 2006 of the vascularized nasoseptal flap (the Hadad-Bassagasteguy flap), reconstruction of extensive skull base dural defects remains challenging. The authors describe a new, modified vascularized nasoseptal flap for reconstruction of extensive skull base dural defects. Read More

Meningoencephalitis Following Endoscopic Dacryocystorhinostomy.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Feb 4. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

An 81-year-old man with unilateral nasolacrimal duct obstruction underwent routine endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy and 2 days postoperatively developed a severe headache and rigors. Subsequent CT and MRI imaging demonstrated a defect in the floor of the right anterior cranial fossa, which possibly was damaged during the operation, and meningoencephalitis of the adjacent frontal lobe gyrus. Following intravenous antibiotic treatment, the patient made a full recovery with no ongoing sequelae, and his epiphora completely resolved. Read More

Complex Bony Congenital Nasolacrimal Duct Obstruction Caused by an Adjacent Canine Tooth Bud.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Jan/Feb;35(1):e23-e24

Department of Ophthalmology, Hôpital Necker-Enfants maladies, 149, rue de Sèvres, 75015, Paris, France.

The authors report the case of a 7-year old child with failed probing with stent intubation, who was found to have an unusual curvature of the nasolacrimal duct on the symptomatic side. CT imaging revealed a permanent maxillary canine tooth adjacent to the duct. It appeared that the relationship of the tooth bud to the curved nasolacrimal duct was most likely responsible for the symptoms of epiphora on this anomalous side. Read More

Eye Clinic of Genoa, Department of Neuroscience, Rehabilitation, Ophthalmology, Genetics, Maternal and Child Health (DiNOGMI), University of Genova, 16132 Genova, Italy.

Congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) is a common condition causing excessive tearing or mucoid discharge from the eyes, due to blockage of the nasolacrimal duct system. Nasolacrimal duct obstruction affects as many as 20% children aged <1 year worldwide and is often resolved without surgery. Available treatment options are conservative therapy, including observation, lacrimal sac massage and antibiotics, and invasive therapy. Read More

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Oct 17;2018. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

Otolaryngology, Concord Repatriation General Hospital, Concord, New South Wales, Australia.

Paranasal mucoceles are cystic masses lined with epithelium thought to result from chronic obstruction of an impaired sinus ostia. If sufficiency large, they can cause ophthalmological sequelae including diplopia, visual acuity, globe displacement as well as the rhinological symptoms of facial pain and headache. We present the case of a 57-year-old man who presented with a 1-year history of epiphora and right globe prominence with associated diplopia. Read More

Importance: Although the overall rate of spontaneous resolution in congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) and efficacy of probing have been documented in the literature, the optimal timing of intervention has not been established.

Objective: To report new findings regarding spontaneous resolution in a large cohort of children with CNLDO.

Design, Setting, And Participants: The medical records of 1998 consecutive infants diagnosed with CNLDO from January 1, 1995, through December 31, 2004, while residing in Olmsted County, Minnesota, were retrospectively reviewed. Read More
