Tubes, Lacrimal Duct

Definition : Tubes designed to provide a pathway between the lacrimal sac and the nasal cavity. These devices typically consist of a very small single-lumen polymeric (e.g., silicon) tube. Lacrimal tubes are intended to provide lacrimal drainage from the eyes when the canal is obstructed or does not exist; they are usually implanted after surgery (dacryocystostomy) to dilate or create a surgical passage.
