Abstract

Endoscopic endonasal dacryoscystorhinostomy [EDCR] is considered to be a superior alternative technique to the conventional external dacryocystorhinostomy [DCR], both in primary and secondary cases. It is of particular value in children and young adults as it avoids an external scar. Sixteen cases of chronic dacryocytitis were treated by the endoscopic technique, including 8 revision cases of failed external approach. In all cases except one, a patent nasolacrimal fistula was noted, with a success rate of 93.7%. The authors share their experience in EDCR and review the relevant literature.
