Abstract

Purpose:  To study the surgical outcomes of Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) in fistulous dacryocystitis.

Study Design:  Quasi Experimental study.

Place and Duration of Study:  The detailed study was carried out in the Institute of Ophthalmology, Liaquat University Hospital Jamshoro, between September 2018 to August 2020.

Material and Methods:  We analyzed the histories of 30 patients taking the DCR procedure and noted their mean age, standard deviation, follow-up time, complications and other details. We also reported the intraoperative anatomical results, postoperative analysis, and variable groups vs. outcomes post-surgery using SPSS Version 20.

Results:  The mean patient's age was 44.2 ± 4.13years, where males to female percentages were 27% to 73%. We noted significant changes in patients with a success rate of 87% displayed by no relieved epiphora and lacrimal patency in 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months. The mean time of the patients was 4 months varying between 1 to 8 (months) and the variable group values vs. surgical outcomes showed no significant association between the variables (p-value ranging from 0.195 to 0.935).

Conclusion:  Complications resulting in some patient’s post-surgery are manageable and the surgical technique has a good success rate.

Key Words:  (DCR) Dacryocystorhinostomy, lacrimal Patency, fistulous Dacryocystitis, Scarring.
