6th Annual Global Video Contest
    Oculoplastics/Orbit, Trauma

    In this video we discuss the etiopathogenesis, classification, clinical features and histopathology of congenital lacrimal fistula and demonstrate a simple technique of closed fistulectomy in a child with patent nasolacrimal duct. This surgery, if performed with patience and precision, can achieve complete excision of the fistulous tract with good anatomic and functional outcome.
