Abstract Between 1987-1991 we inserted Crawford tubes in the nasolacrimal system in 24 children with recurrent epiphora following unsuccessful probing. Twenty-two are free of epiphora and discharge from 6 months to 4 years after the removal of tubes and 2 children show no improvement. Apart from mild epistaxis at the time of the tube insertion and tube displacement within 2 weeks of insertion in 3 children, we report no other complications.
