This book explains and elaborates upon the procedure of endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy in a variety of indications.It systematically deals with the anatomy of the lacrimal drainage system, covering all aspects of gross, endoscopic and radiological anatomy.It discusses extensively on the preoperative assessment involving clinical and radiological evaluation as it is a crucial step towards achieving a successful dacryocystorhinostomy.It uses a lot of clinical and schematic diagrams of the surgical steps, simplifying the layout of the procedure and thus making it very easy for the eye and ENT surgeons to follow the technique. The book covers from basic to the most advanced and minimally invasive procedures likedacryoendoscopy and balloon dacryoplasty.It also provides a few handy tips for the upcoming young oculoplastic surgeons, ENT surgeons and postgraduate students.
