The objective of this study was to assess the quality of outcomes of powered endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy using the lacrimal symptom (Lac-Q) questionnaire.Prospective interventional case series of 50 consecutive patients who underwent primary powered endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy were included in the study. All the patients had stent placement which were removed at 4 weeks. The Lac-Q questionnaire was administered preoperatively and at 4 weeks and 16 weeks following the surgery. Outcomes ...

Aims To explore effects of time following ptosis surgery on patient-reported quality-of-life outcomes. Methods The Glasgow Benefit Inventory (GBI), a validated, postinterventional questionnaire was administered to consecutive adults undergoing ptosis surgery on the operating list of one surgeon over a 30-month period. Patients who were not contactable or unable to provide answers were excluded. Mean scores of patients grouped by time since surgery were compared (unpaired t test and Westlake inte...

BACKGROUND: To describe the aetiology and management of the symptom epiphora presenting to a specialist ophthalmic service. DESIGN: A retrospective case series and patient postal questionnaire of all new referrals seen in a specialist unit with primary symptoms of epiphora between January 2007 and December 2008. The study was begun in 2010 to allow a 2-year follow-up for this cohort. PARTICIPANTS: Two hundred thirty-seven patients were identified, of which 192 met the inclusion criteria. Fifty-s...

It is vital that surgeons undertaking oculoplastic procedures are able to show that the surgery they perform is of benefit to their patients. Not only is this fundamental to patient-centred medicine but it is also important in demonstrating cost effectiveness. There are several ways in which benefit can be measured, including clinical scales, functional ability scales, and global quality-of-life scales. The Glasgow benefit inventory (GBI) is an example of a patient-reported, questionnaire-based,...

Background: Definitive treatment of nasolacrimal duct obstruction is with external or endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). Recent trials suggest surgical equivalency between techniques. We sought to compare alternative outcomes of DCR techniques in terms of quality of life and cost.Methods: This study was a multicentre prospective nonrandomized case series comparing adult patients treated with external or endonasal DCR. Groups were allocated according to DCR technique. Participation did not af...

Aim: To compare patient satisfaction and experience after external dacryocystorhinostomy (EX-DCR) versus transcanalicular DCR (TC-DCR) with a diode laser and to evaluate the change in quality of life following simultaneous bilateral DCR.Methods: Prospective evaluation of 38 eyes of 19 patients with bilateral nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) who underwent TC-DCR for the right eye (Group 1) and EX-DCR for the left eye (Group 2) simultaneously. The subjective outcomes (tearing, irritation, pain...

BACKGROUND: A symptom-based questionnaire (the `Lac-Q` questionnaire) for adult patients undergoing lacrimal drainage surgery was developed. The questionnaire yields a numerical score that can be used to assess severity of symptoms. METHODOLOGY: In this study, the questionnaire was evaluated in 17 consecutive patients undergoing 22 dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) procedures. The questionnaire was administered pre- and postoperatively. The pathology encountered at operation was recorded. The success ...

Purpose: The risk of epiphora after medial maxillectomy with lacrimal duct transection is difficult to assess. The data available in the literature are inconclusive due to various operating techniques used by the authors of medical publications, different additional procedures aimed at improving tear drainage after maxillectomy, and a variety of lacrimal duct patency assessment techniques. The aim of our work was to assess the anatomical and functional patency of lacrimal ducts after medial maxi...

PURPOSE: To conduct a literature review on postoperative quality of life in oculoplastic patients. METHODS: The authors conducted a database search to evaluate the evidence available for the change in quality of life after oculoplastic surgery. RESULTS: There was a wide disparity of evidence available for different oculoplastic conditions. Certain conditions, such as nasolacrimal duct obstruction, were well-researched while other conditions, such as epiblepharon, had little to no research suppor...

BACKGROUND: We report a rare case of optic neuropathy following dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) in a 57-year-old female patient with May-Hegglin anomaly. CASE PRESENTATION: The patient was presented with sudden onset of vision loss for the left eye after DCR under general anesthesia. Her best corrected visual acuity was light perception in the left eye. Relative afferent pupillary defect was detected in her left eye. Magnetic resonance imaging of the orbit revealed an hyperintensity at the intra-orb...

Mit dem Einsatz von Mikroendoskopen in der Tranenwegchirurgie und dem dadurch bedingten Einzug der neueren, transkanalikularen, anatomieerhaltenden Operationsverfahren wurden verschiedenste Tranenwegintubationssysteme entwickelt. Je nach Lokalisation und Ausmas der Tranenwegstenose konnen bikanalikuloanulare, monokanalikulare, monokanalikulonasale, bikanalikulare und bikanalikulonasale Intubationstechniken und -systeme sowie Kombinationen daraus zum Einsatz kommen. Der isolierten Intubation der ...
