    This video features a conventional dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) that uses an ultrasonic osteotome (Misonix BoneScalpel), an innovative device that allows precise cuts as thin as 0.5 mm while preserving the underlying soft tissue. This device may increase surgical precision, reduce the risk of damage to other tissues, and reduce inflammation and intraoperative bleeding.
