Purpose: The purpose of this study is to compare the surgical outcomes and near stereoacuities after unilateral medial rectus (MR) muscle resection and lateral rectus (LR) recession according to deviation angle in basic intermittent exotropia, X(T). Methods: Ninety patients with basic type X(T) were included in this study. They underwent unilateral recession of the LR and resection of the MR and were followed postoperatively for at least 12 months. Patients were divided into three groups according to their preoperative deviation angle: group 1 ≤20 prism diopter (PD), 20 PD< group 2 <40 PD, and group 3 ≥40 PD. Surgical outcomes and near stereoacuities one year after surgery were evaluated. Surgical success was defined as having a deviation angle range within ±10 PD for both near and distance fixation. Results: Among 90 patients, groups 1, 2, and 3 included 30 patients each. The mean age in groups 1, 2, and 3 was 9.4 years, 9.4 years, and 11.0 years, respectively. The surgical success rates one year after surgery for groups 1, 2, and 3 were 80.0%, 73.3%, and 73.3% (chi-square test, p = 0.769), respectively. The undercorrection rates for groups 1, 2, and 3 were 16.7%, 23.3%, and 26.7%, and the overcorrection rates were 3.3%, 3.3%, and 0%, respectively. The mean preoperative near stereoacuities for groups 1, 2, and 3 were 224.3 arcsec, 302.0 arcsec, and 1,107.3 arcsec, and the mean postoperative near stereoacuities were 218.3 arcsec, 214.7 arcsec, and 743.0 arcsec (paired t-test; p = 0.858, p = 0.379, p = 0.083), respectively. Conclusions: In basic X(T) patients, the amount of angle deviation has no influence on surgical outcomes in unilateral LR recession and MR resection. The near stereoacuities by one year after LR recession and MR resection for intermittent X(T) were not different among patient groups separated by preoperative deviation angle.

PURPOSE: To evaluate fusion stereopsis in patients with intermittent exotropia before and after strabismus surgery. METHODS: Fifty-three patients (mean age: 11.8 years, range: 5 to 25 years) with intermittent exotropia were enrolled. Fusion was measured with the Worth 4-dot test. Near stereopsis was examined with Titmus and stereoscopic test charts (created in China by Shao-Ming Yan). Distance stereopsis was tested with random-dot stereograms produced by Tianjin Eye Hospital. All patients comple...

Purpose To evaluate the long-term results of 2-muscle surgery in children with primary large-angle exotropia, comparing 10 mm bilateral lateral rectus recession (BLR) with unilateral lateral rectus recession-medial rectus resection (recess/resect). Design Retrospective case series. Methods Eighty-six children with exotropia of ≥40 prism diopters (PD), who underwent the 10 mm BLR (BLR group) or the unilateral recess/resect procedure (RR group) based on the largest angle measured at distance or ne...

Purpose To investigate the course of near stereoacuity in a cohort of children with untreated intermittent exotropia. Methods A total of 95 children ages 2-16 years with untreated intermittent exotropia were identified who had measurements of near stereoacuity using the Preschool Randot (PSR) test on at least 2 successive examinations, with no intervening treatment. Deterioration was defined as a drop of at least 3 octaves, as determined by test–retest data. Alternative secondary analyses were p...

In cases of extropia with an exodeviation angle over 50 prism diopter (PD), a 3- or 4-muscle surgery is a rational option. But, in patients with sensory exotropia, there is usually a strong preference for a monocular procedure to avoid surgery on the single seeing eye. Thus, we confined surgery to visually poor eyes, and performed a medial rectus muscle resection with a mean of 10.3 mm (range, 9-11 mm) and a lateral rectus muscle recession with a mean of 12.8 mm (range, 10-14 mm) in 4 adult sens...

Purpose: To assess the accuracy of estimating postoperative deviation in large-angle exotropia over 40 prism diopters (PD). Methods: A retrospective analysis was performed on 61 exotropia patients with over 40 PD exotropia who had undergone 2-muscle surgery by two surgeons and with at least 6 months follow-up. The accuracy was assessed by analyzing the discrepancy between preoperatively predicted residual deviation and deviation at postoperative 6weeks. Successful surgery was defined as deviatio...

Purpose The course of intermittent exotropia and response to surgery may depend on whether there is underlying monofixation. The purpose of this study was to report the prevalence of sensory monofixation in intermittent exotropia using different stereotests and to determine the risk of misclassifying monofixation based on a single administration of each test. Design Retrospective case review of children with intermittent exotropia. Methods Forty-four children were identified for whom Preschool R...

Introduction The predictive value of preoperative stereopsis on the surgical outcome of patients with intermittent exotropia is unknown. We hypothesize that it may predict motor and sensory outcome. We report our experience with fusional status at near measured using Titmus circles before and after eye muscle surgery for intermittent exotropia. Methods In this retrospective case series, 95 children underwent bilateral lateral rectus muscle recession. Visual acuity, near stereoacuity, and ocular ...

Purpose To evaluate whether distance stereoacuity improves following surgery for intermittent exotropia using the Frisby Davis Distance (FD2) and Distance Randot stereotests. Methods Eighteen patients (median age, 24 years; range, 5 to 68 years) with intermittent exotropia were prospectively enrolled. Stereoacuity was measured pre- and 6 weeks postoperatively using the FD2 and Frisby near tests (real depth tests) and Preschool Randot and Distance Randot tests (polaroid vectographs). Results Dist...

Resume Les strabismes divergents intermittents (SDI) sont les plus frequents des strabismes divergents. Ils seraient dus a des mecanismes passifs, par configuration anatomique des globes et des orbites, ou a des mecanismes actifs innervationnels, entrainant une divergence des axes visuels, compensee par la convergence (principalement fusionnelle). L’insuffisance intermittente de la compensation confere au strabisme son caractere intermittent. Les symptomes les plus frequents en cas de SDI sont l...

ABSTRACTPurpose: To investigate the long-term (10 years) effects of augmented bilateral lateral rectus (aBLR) recession in patients affected by divergence excess intermittent exotropia (deIXT). Methods: Data of 58 patients affected by deIXT who underwent aBLR muscle recession were retrospectively analyzed. All patients were treated with 8.0 to 9.5 mm (mean 8.6 ± 0.5 mm) recession of BLR.Results: Our result showed a significant decreasing of both distance and near residual deviation during follow...

AIM: To study the factors affecting residual exotropia (>10 PD) at 4-6wk postoperative visit following two rectus muscle surgery for intermittent exotropia [bilateral lateral rectus (LR) recession or unilateral recess resect procedure]. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of patients with intermittent exotropia ≤50 PD who underwent two rectus muscle surgery in between Jan. 2011 to Dec. 2013 was performed.
