The dacryocystitis is an inflammation of a dacryocyst which is between a nose and an internal corner a century. Usually it arises because of disturbance of passability of a nasal duct which carries out the lacrimal liquid to a nasal cavity. In a bag pathogenic bacteriums accumulate, and the inflammation develops. The dacryocystitis can be acute or chronic.
* Usually arises on the one hand
* Intolerable dacryagogue
* Morbidity, reddening and hypostasis in an internal corner of an eye
* A discharge from an eye
Inborn impassability of the lacrimal ways, injury, any infectious disease of an eye or its effect can serve as its proximate causes.
Often the dacryocyst inflames at newborns. There is in ophthalmology even a separate term 'dacryocystitis of newborns'. There is it because of underdevelopment of the lacrimal ways at kids that promotes easy emergence of impassability. Often the infection repeats several times, but eventually this problem self-destructs in process of growth of the child. At adults the dacryocystitis can develop as a complication of damage or an inflammation of the nasal courses - yes, after banal cold. In most cases, however, the reason is unknown.
Treatment of the Dacryocystitis:
Treatment of a dacryocystitis depends on age of the patient, that, acute or chronic it is process, and its reasons.
At first do to newborns light massage of area of a projection of a dacryocyst to try to allow obstruction of a channel, in a combination with antibacterial drops and ointments for suppression of an infection. Operation can be necessary in the absence of effect of conservative treatment.
Before operation the doctor appoints massive antibacterial therapy to avoid infectious complications, including from a brain as a venous blood from this area can get to a head cavity, and under the corresponding conditions abscess of a brain or purulent encephalitis can develop. Operation is performed under the general anesthesia. The sense of operation consists in recovery of the normal message between a conjunctival cavity and a nasal cavity.
It is possible to try to achieve passability of the lacrimal ways from adults their forced washing by disinfecting solutions. In cases when drug treatment does not help, or the disease became chronic, there is a need for operational treatment. In such situations carry usually out an endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy when cuts become not from skin, and from mucous a nose. More painful, but also more reliable option in the absence of the necessary equipment or experience - a classical dacryocystorhinostomy through usual access. Result which achieve, recovery of normal current of the lacrimal liquid.
