Rebamipide promotes lacrimal duct epithelial cell survival via protecting barrier function.

Sci Rep 2020 Feb 3;10(1):1641. Epub 2020 Feb 3.

Department of Frontier Medical Science and Technology for Ophthalmology, Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, Kyoto, Japan.

Nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) is thought to be due to inflammation and fibrosis of lacrimal duct epithelial cells (LDECs). Here we investigated the effect of rebamipide, a drug that is used for the protection of the mucosa and the treatment of gastritis and gastroduodenal ulcers, on LDECs, both in vitro and in vivo. In this study, LDECs were cultured from rabbit lacrimal duct tissues, and the barrier function of LEDCs was examined in vitro via transepithelial electrical resistance (TER) measurement, with or without interleukin (IL)-6 and/or rebamipide.

Comparative study of stenting and ostium packing in Endoscopic Dacryocystorhinostomy for Primary Acquired Nasolacrimal Duct Obstruction.

Sci Rep 2020 01 8;10(1):46. Epub 2020 Jan 8.

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Prince of Wales Hospital, 30-32 Ngan Shing Street, Shatin, New Territories, Hong Kong.

In this retrospective study, we compared the efficacy and safety of mechanical adjuvants in mucosal-sparing, mechanical endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (MMED) for primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction (PANDO). 116 adult patients (90 female) aged 61 ± 11 received one of the following after MMED without topical mitomycin: no stenting or packing (group 1, n = 25), 1-week ostium packing by ribbon gauze (group 2, n = 29) or non-medicated absorbable gelatin sponge (group 3, n = 25), 8-week bicanalicular stenting (group 4, n = 28). 104 patients(92%) provided 12-month outcomes.

External Dacryocystorhinostomy: A Comparison Of Ultrasonic Bone Aspiration To High-Speed Drilling.

Clin Ophthalmol 2019 17;13:2535-2540. Epub 2019 Dec 17.

Department of Ophthalmology, Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO, USA.

Purpose: Piezosurgical tools utilize high-frequency ultrasonic oscillations to selectively cut mineralized bone and minimize damage to soft tissue and mucosa. The purpose of this study was to directly compare outcomes in external dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) using a piezoelectric ultrasonic bone aspirator (UBA) versus a high-speed electric drill with a diamond burr.

Methods: A retrospective chart review was conducted on 145 consecutive patients who underwent external DCR by a single oculoplastic surgeon between 2012 and 2017. Read More

Surgical outcomes of endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy: analysis of age effect.

Sci Rep 2019 12 27;9(1):19861. Epub 2019 Dec 27.

Department of Ophthalmology, Chungnam National University College of Medicine, Chungnam National University Hospital, Daejeon, Republic of Korea.

There is limited evidence in literature determining age effect on outcomes of endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (EDCR) in adult patients with primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO). We aimed to analyze the outcomes of EDCR according to age in primary acquired NLDO. A retrospective study was performed on consecutive adult patients and patients were divided into two age groups; group 1 (aged to 61 years) and group 2 (aged 62 to 89 years) based on the average value.

Loss of Pacer Spikes as electrocardiographic (EKG) Artifact Due to Microdebrider Use During Endoscopic Dacryocystorhinostomy.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2020 Mar/Apr;36(2):e50-e51

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.

As intraoperative use of electronic equipment becomes more common, familiarity with the potential for electrocardiographic artifact generated by these instruments is increasingly important. The authors' patient underwent endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy under general anesthesia for treatment of acute on chronic dacryocystitis secondary to acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction. She had previously had pacemaker placement for treatment of sick sinus syndrome and low ejection fraction heart failure, and use of a microdebrider intraoperatively resulted in loss of pacer spikes and interference signal on electrocardiographic leading to placement of a magnet.

Orbit 2019 Dec 6:1-4. Epub 2019 Dec 6.

South Australian Institute of Ophthalmology, Royal Adelaide Hospital, The University of Adelaide, Australia.

Sebaceous carcinoma (SC) is the third most common eyelid malignancy in Australia, and is potentially fatal. It usually presents as a nodule or diffuse eyelid thickening, and is commonly misdiagnosed. We describe a case of SC with lacrimal sac involvement, presenting with clinical features of nasolacrimal duct obstruction. Read More
