Endoscopic Dacryocystorhinostomy

Epiphora due to nasolacrimal duct obstruction is a common condition worsening one’s quality of life. It requires surgical treatment. We present a combined technique of transnasal endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy with simultaneous limited septoplasty, circumostial mitomycin C injection and the use of tissue glue in a case of a 72-year-old patient with nasolacrimal duct obstruction complicated by septal deviation. The multiprocedure surgery was performed successfully. Follow-up time was 2 years. The patient remained asymptomatic within the observation time. Functional and anatomical success was achieved. We believe that the transnasal endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy extended by limited endoscopic septoplasty, circumostial mitomycin C injection and the use of fibrin glue may be a solution for selected cases of nasolacrimal obstruction accompanied by significant local septal deviation.
