Nonconventional procedure leads to faster resolution for acute dacryocystitis

September 6, 2017

Primary nonendoscopic endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy may lead to faster resolution for patients with acute dacryocystitis compared with those treated with delayed external dacryocystorhinostomy, according to a study.

Patients with acute dacryocystitis treated with primary nonendoscopic endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy (NEN-DCR) experienced complete resolution of their symptoms in a mean of 21.4 days compared with 38.69 days for patients treated with delayed external dacryocystorhinostomy (EXT-DCR) (P = .000014). The retrospective study included 23 patients treated with NEN-DCR and 23 patients treated with EXT-DCR.
