AB  - BACKGROUND: We developed a novel surgical technique to treat punctal stenosis
      involving the placement of three interrupted sutures after rectangular three-snip
      punctoplasty (TSP). METHODS: Retrospective chart review of forty-eight eyes of 44
      patients who underwent rectangular TSP with three interrupted sutures was
      performed. We investigated whether anatomical recurrences (re-stenosis) occurred 
      during the follow-up period. The subjective symptoms of patients were surveyed.
      RESULTS: The mean patient age was 64.1 years, and the mean follow-up time was
      17.4 months. The placement of three interrupted sutures after rectangular TSP
      afforded satisfactory outcomes. Regarding subjective symptoms, 91.7% of the eyes 
      (44/48) were reported as improved. Among 4 eyes determined as symptomatic
      failure, anatomical recurrence (re-stenosis of the punctum) was observed in only 
      one eye. The other three (6.25%, 3/48 eyes) showed functional nasolacrimal
      obstruction, namely epiphora with patent tear duct. CONCLUSIONS: Placement of
      three interrupted sutures after rectangular TSP to treat punctal stenosis showed 
      promising results. Notably anatomical success rate was about 98%. Further
      comparisons between the novel surgical technique and conventional techniques are 
      required.
