The purpose of this study is: - To report the success proportions for the treatment of persistent nasolacrimal duct obstruction for three surgical procedures: balloon catheter dil...
To compare the clinical effects between the silicone nasolacrimal intubation under nasaendoscopy and dacryocystorhinostomy on patients with lacrimal duct obstruction.
The aim of this study is to compare results of endoscopy assisted nasolacrimal probing with the standard simple probing in cases with congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction . Furthermore...
The purpose of this study is: To determine the cost-effectiveness of treating NLDO using immediate office probing compared with deferred probing in a facility setting. As part of the prim...
For patients with chronic epiphora, Dacryocystorhinostomy is currently the gold standard treatment, with a success rate of 80-90% according to literature. Another available treatment, whic...
Morphology and dimensions of the bony nasolacrimal canal duct (BNLD) as a key factor in the development of primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction. We aimed to obtain detailed morphometric anal...
The congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction is a common pathology, with low morbidity, but not exempt of complications without the correct diagnosis and management.
The Masterka stent has been recommended solely for treatment of simple distal membranous nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the Masterka stent as a primary...
The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of buried probe variant of complex congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) and to evaluate the outcome of probing and irrigation in such ...
Interference with the secretion of tears by the lacrimal glands. Obstruction of the lacrimal sac or nasolacrimal duct causing acute or chronic inflammation of the lacrimal sac (DACRYOCYSTITIS). It is caused also in infants by failure of the nasolacrimal duct to open into the inferior meatus and occurs about the third week of life. In adults occlusion may occur spontaneously or after injury or nasal disease. (Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p250)
A tubular duct that conveys TEARS from the LACRIMAL GLAND to the nose.
Blockage in any part of the URETER causing obstruction of urine flow from the kidney to the URINARY BLADDER. The obstruction may be congenital, acquired, unilateral, bilateral, complete, partial, acute, or chronic. Depending on the degree and duration of the obstruction, clinical features vary greatly such as HYDRONEPHROSIS and obstructive nephropathy.
Surgical fistulization of the lacrimal sac for external drainage of an obstructed nasolacrimal duct.
Functional obstruction of the COLON leading to MEGACOLON in the absence of obvious COLONIC DISEASES or mechanical obstruction. When this condition is acquired, acute, and coexisting with another medical condition (trauma, surgery, serious injuries or illness, or medication), it is called Ogilvie's syndrome.
