BIKA® intubation systems have been the first models designed for bicanalicular intubation, especially in case of congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction and dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). The metallic probes are securely connected at the silicone tube for an easy and safe retrieval from the nose.
The Autostable Bicanaliculus Intubation Set ll is a FCI exclusive solution to treat punctal stenosis and horizontal lacrimal duct obstruction. Thanks to the rigid guides inside the silicone tube, the placement of the Autostable Bicanaliculus Intubation Set II can be done as an office procedure.
Discussion. — The frequency self-retaining stent disappearance is estimated at 15%. Among these cases, intralacrimal migration is only reported in 0.5% of cases. To prevent intralacrimal migration, the surgical technique must follow a certain number of rules. Management, based on residual epiphora, is discussed.
