Abstract

Injuries of the lacrimal system are occasionally associated with maxillofacial trauma. Detailed knowledge of the anatomy of the lacrimal apparatus is essential for optimal treatment of these injuries. The pertinent anatomy is reviewed. Techniques for the diagnoses and repair of lacrimal injuries specific to the canaliculi are presented and discussed with emphasis on early detection and intervention.
