272 Patients with obstruction in nasolacrimal duct were treated by endoscopic nacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). The results were compared with that of external DCR and Endoscopic DCR without stent. In our study Endoscopic DCR with stening had better results. Endoscopic DCR with stenting has several advantages over the more conventional external approach and Endoscopic DCR without stenting. Results at 4 years of follow up have been good that is 98.6% patients were relieved of symptoms completely.
