Purpose: Assessment of the outcome of endoscopic revision of DCR. Patients and Methods: Twenty-two recurrent dacryocystitis cases who attended the Mansoura Ophthalmic Center in the period from July 2020 to June 2022 were enrolled in this study. Endoscopic DCR was performed to these cases as a revision surgery. Results: Clinical improvement from baseline after treatment was observed in all symptoms (p <0.001). The success rate achieved by endoscopy was 19/22 patients (86.4%), while only 3/22 cases (13.6%) had failure. Conclusion: Endoscopic revision after failed DCR is an effective and safe procedure for treatment of recurrent dacryocystitis.
