  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reported the clinical application of endoscopic endonasal approach to five types of surgery related to ophthalmopathy; i) orbital decompression, ii) decompression of the optic nerve, iii) recon-struction of blowout fracture of the medial orbital wall, iv) drainage of subperiosteal abscess of the orbit, and v) dacryocystorhinostomy. Although the technique with an endonasal endoscope should be performed by surgeons with extensive experi-ence, all cases resulted in safe and accurate proce-dures without intraoperative and postoperative complications. These surgical procedures have the potential to reduce surgical severity, complication, and hospitalization.
