Choosing a paediatric tracheostomy tube: an update on current practice.
The choice of paediatric tracheostomy tube is driven by clinical requirements. A small range of tubes are suitable for the majority of children, but some will require other varieties in specific circumstances....
Peripunctal "anchor" suture for securing the silicone bicanalicular stent in the repair of canalicular lacerations.
We used punctal absorbable suture in 8 patients (8 eyes) for silicone stent stabilization in canalicular repair surgery to prevent the postoperative complication of "cheese-wiring." Postoperatively there was 1 case of cheese-wiring of the repaired canaliculus, and no other complication related to th...
Bicanalicular silicone intubation in acquired partial nasolacrimal duct obstruction.
Complete success was reported in 47% (31/66). Partial success was reported in 3% (2/66), and no improvement in 50% (33/66). 12% (8/66) was subsequently treated with dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). CONCLUSION: In patients with acquired partial NLD obstruction, we noted a low success-rate for bicanalicul...
The round-tipped, eyed pigtail probe for canalicular intubation: a review of 228 patients.
Of 228 patients, 222 (97.4%) had their canalicular systems successfully intubated with silicone tubing using the round-tipped, eyed pigtail probe. Follow-up was obtained in 191 (86%) of the 222 patients. One-hundred sixty of 191 (83.8%) patients were irrigated and found to be anatomically patent (of...
Inclination of the superomedial orbital rim in relation to that of the nasolacrimal drainage system.
[Aorto-oesophageal fistula in patient with Montgomery salivary bypass tube].
We present here a case report about an 81-year-old patient with an MSBT who died because of a massive upper gastrointestinal bleeding caused by an aorto-oesophageal fistula at the site of the MSBT. The literature on this pathology will also be reviewed....
Silicone tubing is not necessary after primary endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy: a prospective randomized study.
The overall success rate after primary EN-DCR was 89%: with silicone tubes it was 78%, and without silicone tubes it was 100%. The difference between these two groups was statistically significant (p<0.049). The follow-up period was 6 months and included three follow-up visits: 1 week, 2 months, and...
[Successful treatment of the trachea injured during intubation].
Effect of short-duration silicone intubation in congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction.
Tube displacement and removal prior to postoperative day 31 occurred in 93 of 227 (41%) of eyes. Four of 24 eyes (17%) in children younger than 12 months who had premature dislocation of silicone tubes compared with 7 of 40 eyes (18%) that maintained silicone tubes for 31 days or greater had persist...
The practice of dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery by ophthalmologists in the United Kingdom (UK).
A minimum of 200 DCR surgeons are practicing in the UK where almost 50% are non-lacrimal specialists. Marked variations exist in the perioperative DCR practice....
