Purpose: The purpose of this study is to show the efficiency of endoscopic endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy (EDCR) in children who have a history of failed surgical interventions following recurrent probings.

Methods: EDCR was performed on 19 eyes in 17 patients diagnosed with persistent congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction who received failed interventions of at least two probings or a silicone tube intubation.

Results: The ages of the 17 patients were between 1.7 years and 5 years (mean = 3.3 years). Regarding sex, 10 patients (58.8%) were male and 7 (41.2%) were female. Surgery was performed on the left eye in nine (53%) cases and on the right eye in six (35%) cases, and in two (12%) cases, bilateral EDCR was performed. The postoperative follow-up time of the cases was between 3 and 46 months (mean = 25.5 months). In all cases except two, findings such as watering and mucopurulent discharge disappeared, and a success rate of 89.4% was achieved

Conclusion: Persistent CNLDO often undergoes surgical interventions such as repeat probing, silicone intubation, and laser dacryocystorhinostomy as alternative methods. However, EDCR is a preferred and safe surgery in children with persistent CNLDO.
