Purpose To evaluate the change in the angle of deviation in an incidence cohort of pediatric patients diagnosed with intermittent exotropia during a 20-year period. Design Retrospective, population-based observational study. Participants All pediatric ( Methods The medical records of all potential patients identified by the resources of the Rochester Epidemiology Project were reviewed. Main Outcome Measures The change in the angle of deviation and its association with treatment were reviewed for...

Abstract Purpose To determine the factors associated with favorable and less favorable outcomes in strabismus surgery for treatment of exotropia and to show the factors influencing the efficacy of the surgical procedure. Methods Case files of 225 patients with a diagnosis of primary exotropia were evaluated. Information about patient age at onset of deviation, patient age at surgery, interval between onset and surgery, preoperative deviation, refractive errors, degree of anisometropia, visual ac...

Purpose : This study was designed to determine the recurrence rate, the recurrence time after surgical correction of intermittent exotropia and the relationships between the factors and the surgical outcome of ntermittent exotropia. Methods: The surgical results were retrospectively investigated in 210 patients who had undergone surgery for intermittent exotropia with at least 3 months (average 26.3 months, range 165 months) after surgical correction. Surgical success was defined as a final dist...

Purpose: To evaluate the amount and pattern of change in deviation angle with time course after surgical correction of intermittent exotropia and to evaluate the effect of pre-operative deviation and operation age on post-operative deviation change. Methods: 54 patients who followed more than 60 months (60120 months, mean 71.7 months) after surgical correction of intermittent exotropia were selected. We defined 'satisfactory results' that alignment of orthotropia, under 10 esotropia and under 10...

Abstract To review and determine the long term outcome of surgery for intermittent exotropia in children. A total of 666 cases were reviewed. They were 15 years old or younger and underwent surgery for intermittent exotropia during the preceding 22 years. Bilateral recession of the lateral rectus muscles was performed in 349 cases. Unilateral recession of the lateral rectus and resection of the medial rectus muscles was performed in 298 cases. One and four muscle procedures were performed in 19 ...

■ BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this paper is to report a statistical analysis of the surgical results in a consecutive series of 52 children treated by bilateral lateral rectus recession for intermittent exotropia when the operating surgeon was confronted by an increase in manifestation of the strabismus. ■ PATIENTS AND METHODS: The charts were ed for age at initial surgery, quantity of initial deviation, initial refraction, motor alignment at one week, six months, and at the end of ...

Purpose: In this study we evaluated the prognostic factors by comparing the clinical manifestation of consecutive exotropia after consecutive exotropia surgery. Methods: We performed a retrospective study of 65 patients who had surgery due to consecutive exotropia after esotropia surgery in Yeungnam University Medical Center between July 1988 and December 2013. The type of esotropia, age at diagnosis of esotropia, type of esotropia surgery, age at esotropia surgery, type of consecutive exotropia...

Purpose: To evaluate the long-term surgical success rate (>3 years) and contributing success factors considering motor and sensory criteria for patients with intermittent exotropia. Methods: Fifty-four patients who received surgery for intermittent exotropia and were followed-up for a minimum of 3 years, including reoperation, were retrospectively evaluated. The first procedure was unilateral recession and resection in 50 patients and bilateral lateral rectus recession in 4 patients. Patients we...
