A variety of methods and materials have been used for the treatment of the problems relating to the canalicular system. An insight into the rail roading technique for intubation of the canaliculi with sutupak in cases of common canalicular duct obstruction is presented here. About 30 patients with block at the common canalicular duct, which was detected by dacryocystography were operated for dacryocystorhinostomy with intubation of both the canaliculi with sutupak No. 0 by rail roading technique with good results.
