Scientific Questions Being Studied

Nasolacrimal pathology can occur at any level and can be ascribed to a variety of etiologies. Management depends on cause, location, and degree of obstruction. While nasolacrimal pathology is common, epidemiologic description of etiologies and outcomes is lacking and often limited to case reports and series, warranting better characterization. The authors aim to describe various types of nasolacrimal pathology and investigate management patterns.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (Nasolacrimal pathology)

Scientific Approaches

Patients with a nasolacrimal disorder will be identified by ICD 9 and 10 billing codes. A dataset of the identified participants will be created to include associated etiologies, exposures, and procedures. Descriptive statistics and statistical analyses, when applicable, will be performed using Workbench tools.

Anticipated Findings

This study is expected to better characterize nasolacrimal pathologies and their management compared to current limited literature. Findings will allow for clinical awareness, informed counseling, and evidence-based management of nasolacrimal disorders.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
