Summary: This review of the literature determined whether adjuvant treatment with antimetabolites improves functional success in dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) for patients with nasolacrimal (tear) duct obstruction (NLDO).
Summary: This study evaluated the results of routine endonasal endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (tear duct surgery) combined with computed tomography guided navigation in patients with nasolacrimal duct obstruction.
Summary: This study examined the clinical presentation, nasal endoscopic features, and outcomes of nasal endoscopy guided (NEG) bicanalicular intubation (BCI) in children with complex persistent congenital nasolacrimal (tear) duct obstruction (pCNLDO).
Summary: This study evaluated the characteristics of bilateral nasolacrimal (tear) duct obstruction (NLDO) carriers and success rates of same day (simultaneous) or asynchronous (different day) bilateral dacryocystorhinostomy (surgery to open tear duct; DCR).
Summary: In this study, researchers evaluated the safety and effectiveness of bicanalicular silicone intubation for the treatment of punctal stenosis and obstruction in patients with allergic conjunctivitis.
