Dacryocystorhinostomy

Video Title: Dacryocystorhinostomy


Description:

This old video, submitted by het Ooglijders Gasthuis Eye Hospital in Utrecht, The Netherlands, shows Prof. H. J. M. Weve operating on a case of Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR), a procedure that aims to eliminate fluid and mucus retention within the lacrimal sac, and to increase tear drainage for relief of epiphora (water running down the face).

The video is a great insight into the old-fashioned way this procedure was done, with a detailed close-up of the instrumentation and an explanation of the anaesthesia used. Also note the surgeon wore no gloves!

Not for the faint-hearted!
