Recent progress in microsurgery has led to a reappraisal of the endonasal approach to the lacrymal sac. The lacrymal duct is located in the orbito-nasal septum and is visible in the anterior part of the middle meatus. A technique is described which was applied in 20 cases, with one complete failure and two temporary failures, the patients having been successfully operated upon a second time.
