The incidence of stenosis of the lacrimal system is increasing. Nasolacrimal diseases and problems are encountered by otolaryngologists, ophthalmologists, plastic surgeons and radiologists. Constant epiphora is the most common symptom associated with nasolacrimal duct obstruction.
This is the first book to cover all currently available methods to manage pre-, intra- and post-lacrimal sac stenosis. Comprehensive multidisciplinary approaches in adults and children are described. International experts provide a stepwise analysis and describe the clinical management of these patients with detailed medical and surgical treatment plans.
Further, the accompanying DVD presents video clips on surgical methods such as endonasal and external DCR; endoscopic versus microscopic procedure; lacrimal endoscopy and transcanalicular surgery; laser DCR and DCR in children; traumatic lesions; interventional radiology and stenting; and conjunctivorhinostomy and Jones tube.
With this excellent guide the reader will be able to solve any problem that may occur with the reconstruction of a disturbed or damaged lacrimal system.
