    Nasolacrimal Duct Stenting Under Sedation

    Oculoplastics, Oculoplastics/Orbit, Pediatric Ophth/Strabismus

    Dr. Adriana Grigorian and colleagues demonstrate a technique for nasolacrimal duct stenting under sedation to treat a duct obstruction in a pediatric patient. The inferior puncta are dilated, and an introducer is placed through the puncta and guided along the canaliculus to a bony stop. The introducer is then rotated to a vertical or coronal position and guided along the lacrimal sac through the duct to be positioned under the inferior turbinate.
