Common canalicular obstruction secondary to the use of Herrick lacrimal plugs, requiring endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy.
J Laryngol Otol 2009; 123(1):129-30JL

Abstract

We report the case of a 40-year-old woman who developed left common canalicular obstruction following insertion of a lacrimal plug. The patient underwent endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy, revealing the presence of the lacrimal plug occluding the common canaliculus. The patient experienced symptomatic improvement of her epiphora post-operatively.
