Abstract
Purpose To compare outcomes after bilateral and unilateral medial rectus (BMR/UMR) resection for the treatment of recurrent exotropia after bilateral lateral rectus (BLR) muscle recession. Design Retrospective, cohort study. Methods Forty-four patients underwent BMR resection (BMR group) or UMR resection (UMR group) for recurrent constant exotropia of 25 prism diopters (PD) or less at distance after undergoing BLR muscle recession for intermittent exotropia in an institutional setting. The main outcome measures were final success rates and improvement in stereopsis and were compared between the groups. The risk factors for recurrence after reoperation also were evaluated. Secondary outcome measures were evaluated based on the drift of ocular alignment toward exodeviation after surgery (exodrift) from postoperative day 1. Results Thirteen (54%) of 24 patients in the BMR group had successful outcomes, 10 (42%) had overcorrection, and 1 (4%) had undercorrection at the last follow-up examination. Sixteen (80%) of 20 patients in the UMR group had successful outcomes, 2 (10%) had undercorrection, and 2 (10%) had overcorrection. The incidence of successful outcomes at the last follow-up examination and the incidence of recurrence were not significantly different between the 2 groups, whereas the incidence of overcorrection was significantly higher in the BMR group ( P = .017). Conclusions Large UMR resection is a safe and effective procedure in the treatment of small to moderate angles of recurrent exotropia after BLR muscle recession. The overcorrection rate was significantly lower after UMR resection than it was after BMR resection.

Aims : To evaluate the postoperative alignment drift following traditional strabismus surgery utilizing direct attachment of muscle to sclera. Methods : The ocular alignment drift (change from the first postoperative week) of 106 patients who underwent scleral fixation strabismus surgery at age 0.5 to 35 years with 5 years maximal follow-up was analyzed. Results : There was a mean undercorrection drift of 4.6 + 8.9 PD at distance fixation (p=0.025) and 3.4 + 7.6 PD at near (p=0.053) for all subj...

Top of pageAbstract Purpose Few reports have included large numbers of exotropia patients. Thus, we undertook this study to perform a survival analysis of over 350 patients with exotropia and to determine which factors might affect the outcome of exotropia surgery. Methods The clinical records of 365 patients who underwent exotropia surgery by one surgeon were retrospectively reviewed. Preoperative patient characteristics, surgical procedures performed, and early postoperative ocular alignment w...

Purpose: We undertook a retrospective evaluation of changes in deviation and ocular motility after surgical rerecession of the lateral rectus (LR) muscles as a treatment for recurrent exotropia (XT). Methods: We describe 16 consecutive patients (age 6 to 35 years; median, 10 years; 13 children and 3 adults) with an average amount of recurrent alignment, amount of rerecession, distance from insertion to the limbus, postoperative alignment, and versions. Results: In most cases, bilateral LR muscle...

Purpose To evaluate the safety of the approach based on the notion that the surgical dose for intermittent exotropia should be based on the largest angle ever measured. Design Prospective case series of 33 patients. Methods A total of 33 patients with intermittent exotropia, in whom angles of misalignment at distance or near showed a difference of 15 prism diopters (PD) or more among visits, were included.

Abstract Background Unilateral medial rectus recession is suitable for some cases of small-angle deviation in esotropia. This approach limits surgery to one eye, leaves other muscles untouched, and should be quicker than bilateral muscle surgery. This study compared the results of a range of medial rectus recessions, both unilateral and bilateral, performed by one surgeon. Methods Data were collected on all pediatric patients who had undergone medial rectus recession, unilateral and bilateral, p...

Intermittent exotropia (X(T)) is one of the most common form of strabismus with surgery being the mainstay of treatment. The main goal of surgery is to preserve binocular vision and stereopsis and to prevent its further loss. The decision to operate is mainly based on four aspects: increasing angle of exodeviation, deteriorating control of X(T), decrease in stereopsis for near or distance and quality of life. Bilateral lateral rectus muscle recession and unilateral lateral rectus recession with ...
