CDCR INSTRUMENT SET
Bausch & Lomb Inc, Manchester, Mo, offers the Putterman Consecutive Conjunctivodacryocystorhinostomy Set, designed for the consecutive CDCR procedure to form the conjunctivodacryocystorhinostomy osteum and place the bypass tube while avoiding withdrawal and reinsertion of instruments in each step of the procedure. The needle is designed to create the initial track with the trephine used to slide over the needle to create the osteum. Once the needle is removed, the Bowman-type probe can be inserted through the trephine. When the trephine is removed, the probe can be used to measure the distance from medial canthus to nasal septum.
The probe features marks in 5.0-mm intervals from the tip to 15.0 mm, in 1.0-mm intervals from 15.0 mm to 25.0 mm, and again in 5.0-mm intervals from 25.0 mm to 35.0 mm.
