Title: Bicanalicular Intubation for Traumatic Unicanalicular Laceration Goal: To asses effective recanalization by bicanalicular intubation using 4-0 prolene material in reduced canalicular laceration Case history: Two months old female child presented with full thickness left lower lid canalicular laceration caused by bull gore injury. The laceration stretched 1 to 2 mm lateral to the lower punctum running farther vertically down to the lid for approximately 6 to 8 mm between the tarso-conjunctival tissue. Retracted and lacerated level lower canaliculus characterized by passing canalicular tracker (pigtail probe) throughout the upper punctum. 4-0 prolene material threaded into the eye of this probe and bicanalicular intubation completed under general anesthesia. The anterior and anterior lacerated lid lamellae repaired with 6.0 vicryl suture material. Outcomes: Prolene substance removed after 6 months and the recovery integrity of these anastamosis observed. The kid followed up for 3 weeks. Flurescein stained applicator signaled the patency of the lower lacrimal excretory system. Conclusion: The infant child was hospitalized without a background of epiphora following bicanalicular intubation. Anatomical and physiological canalization attained with the use of 4-0 prolene material, externally intubated for traumatic unicanalicular laceration. Prolene material can revive the drainage properties of lacrimal canalicular system with no suture related complications. Keywords: Canalicular laceration, Pig-tail probe, Prolene, Intubation, Epiphora. Intro: Canalicular laceration ends in disturbing anatomical and physiological structure of the lacrimal excretory process inducing lid malposition and epiphora that happen generally after.
