Right mucocele following road
traffic accident 10 years ago.
An incision is made over the
mucocele to expose the lacrimal sac.
To facilitate drainage, the
mucocele was deflected by draining its content.
The lacrimal sac was removed by
freeing it from the surronding tissue.
2 lacrimal probes were inserted to
check that no lacrimal sac was left behind.
The removed sac.
The sac was bisected and the wall
was noted to be thickened and there was a polyp within the sac.
The excess skin was excised and the
wound was closed using mattress sutures.
