AbstractOne of the commonest causes of dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) failure is the closure of the ostium due to healing of the mucosal edges, formation of synechiae, or presence of granulation tissue [1]. Another postulated cause of failure is the sump syndrome where a remnant of the inferior lacrimal sac acts as a nondraining reservoir [2]. These complications can be minimized by creating an adequately sized and appropriately placed ostium.
