Conjunctivodacryocystorhinostomy with the Insertion of a Jones Tube


12.14 Conclusion

A proximal canalicular obstruction can be treated with conjunctivocystorhinostomy + Jones tube placement. The procedure should be used if no other reconstruction procedures can be performed. As a high number of complications, much higher than in DCR, are observed in the postoperative period, a very good motivation should be a basic condition for successful surgery.
