This study evaluated the effectiveness of endoscopic canaliculodacryocystorhinostomy with two sets of silicone tube intubation in the distal part of canalicular obstruction. METHODS: Endoscopic canaliculodacryocystorhinostomy with double silicone tube intubation was done in 26 patients with canalicular obstruction from January 2002 to December 2002. Probing or trephination was used for recanaliculization of obstructed canaliculi. The silicone tube was left in place for 6 months. RESULTS: The success rate was 76.9% (20 of 26 patients) two months after tube removal. The level of canalicular obstruction or method of bougienage did not affect the success rates. Complications includes granuloma formation (12), synechia of ostium (1), prolepses of tube (2), and acute dacryocystitis(1). CONCLUSIONS: Endoscopic canaliculodacryocystorhinostomy with double silicone tube intubation showed a relatively high success rate and was more effective and convenient than conjunctivodacryocystorhinostomy with Jones tube.
