Too short

STENTS THAT ARE TOO SHORT

 

a)   TWO SIGNS :

             -1) The fixation head is already at the punctum, but the stenosis is not yet reached

             -2) No metal-to-metal contact !

 

 

The estimated distance between the punctum and the nasolacrimal stenosis is longer than the length of this stent.

 

b)   RISK : failure of the procedure.

 

THE LENGTH OF THE MASTERKA MUST BE LONGER TO THE LENGTH OF THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE PUNCTUM AND THE NASAL FLOOR.

 

c)   WHAT TO DO :

      -  Remove the Masterka

      -  Remeasure the distance '' punctum-nasal floor.''

       - Choose a longer Masterka device.

       - Confirm the proper positioning of the Masterka by repeating a metal-to-metal contact procedure.

        - Redo from the beginning

 

 

       - When in doubt...
