Gene context of Nasolacrimal Duct

  • Of the 10 patients (17 eyes) with MRSA or MRCNS growth, 8 were older than 80 years, 5 had the same bacterial strains in the anterior nares and throat, 6 had nasolacrimal duct obstruction, 3 had dry eye, and 9 had been recently hospitalized [18].
  • CONCLUSIONS: The EXT-DCR, when compared with ENL-DCR, seems to provide superior operation results in primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction [19].
  • The Micro-Reflux Test: a new test to evaluate nasolacrimal duct obstruction [20].
  • Immunoreactivity was also observed in the mucus covering the respiratory and olfactory mucosa and in the lumen of the nasolacrimal duct [21].
  • The severity of nasolacrimal duct obstruction, myopia, ptosis, and strabismus was classified [22].
