1. Lacrimal sac metastases from renal cell carcinoma.
Match Strength: 3.978
PURPOSE: To report the first case of metastasis from renal cell carcinoma to the lacrimal sac and review the therapeutic options. METHODS: We have reviewed the case of a woman who was operated on for a renal cell carcinoma that developed epiphora and a lacrimal sac tumor, which corresponded to a metastasis from her previous tumor. Although renal cell carcinoma shows a great tendency for distant metastasis, this is the first reported case of metastasis to the lacrimal sac. RESULTS: We comment on the rarity of the case and on the therapeutic alternatives for these cases according to the reviewed ... Read More »

2. A permanent and reversible procedure to block tear drainage for the treatment of dry eye.
Match Strength: 3.906
PURPOSE: To describe a technique of canalicular ligation and report observations on 59 consecutive surgeries. METHODS: Retrospective, non-comparative case series of canalicular ligation by 3 surgeons over a 7-year period. RESULTS: Fifty-nine eyelids of 29 patients (2 men and 27 women) underwent canalicular ligation for the treatment of severe dry eyes. Patient age ranged from 34 to 90 years. Average length of follow-up was 20 months. There were no complications. Ninety-one percent of patients noted an improvement in their symptoms. Two patients developed symptomatic epiphora more than 1 year ... Read More »

3. Human thelaziosis--a neglected parasitic disease of the eye.
Match Strength: 3.153
The oriental eyeworm, Thelazia callipaeda (Spirurida, Thelaziidae), infects a range of definitive hosts, such as dogs, cats, foxes, rabbits, and humans. This parasite usually lives under the nictitating membrane of the eye, where the adult females release first-stage larvae into the lachrymal secretions; these larvae are subsequently ingested by the intermediate arthropod host within which they develop to the infective, third-stage larvae. The latter larvae are then deposited into the eyes of the definitive host. Recently, T. callipaeda has been reported to infect dogs, foxes, and/or cats in ... Read More »

4. En bloc excision in malignant tumors of the lacrimal drainage apparatus.
Match Strength: 3.032
PURPOSE: To describe the surgical technique and results of en bloc excision in a series of patients with extensive malignant tumors of the lacrimal drainage apparatus (LDA). METHODS: This was a noncomparative, retrospective chart review of the clinical and pathologic findings of 11 patients presenting with a malignant tumor affecting the LDA who underwent en bloc excision of the lacrimal system. RESULTS: Of the 11 patients, 7 were male. The mean age at presentation was 58 years (range, 39 to 81 years), and all cases were unilateral. Histopathology revealed 4 squamous cell carcinomas, 3 ...

5. Comparison of two endoscopically assisted procedures in primary surgical treatment of congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction in children older than 3 years: balloon dilatation and bicanalicular silicone tube intubation.
Match Strength: 2.845
OBJECTIVES: To determine the success of two transnasally endoscopic assisted procedures as balloon dilatation and bicanalicular silicone tube intubation for the primary surgical treatment of congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction in children older than 3 years. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective randomized clinical trial. METHODS: An interventional case series of consecutive primary endoscopic assisted balloon dilatation (BD) and bicanalicular silicone tube intubation (STI) for congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction in children older than 3 years was reviewed. BD was performed in 20 eyes of 17 ... Read More »
