Development of modern surgical techniques is associated with the need for a thorough knowledge of surgical anatomy and, in the case of ophthalmologic surgery, also functional aspects of extraocular muscles. Thus, the leading idea of this review was to summarize the most recent findings regarding the normal anatomy and anomalies of the extraocular rectus muscles (ERMs). Particular attention was paid to the presentation of detailed and structured data on the gross anatomy of the ERMs, including th...

To report the results of surgical treatment for sensory exotropia and to examine the factors associated with the surgical outcome. The records of patients with sensory exotropia who were older than 18 years at the time of surgery and were followed up for at least 1 year postoperatively were retrospectively reviewed. Patients with visual acuity of ≤20/100 in the amblyopic eye were enrolled. Surgical success was defined as a final deviation of <10 prism diopters (PD) at distance in the primary pos...

Purpose To report the success rates in children after one-muscle recession for sensory strabismus. Methods The medical records of consecutive patients ≤18 years of age who underwent primary unilateral horizontal surgery for sensory strabismus measuring ≤30 Δ from 2004 to 2010 were retrospectively reviewed. Data collected included age at surgery, sex, length of follow-up, procedure performed, pre- and postoperative deviation, and treatment of associated vertical strabismus. Success was defined as...

Surgical management of strabismus remains a challenge because surgical success rates, short-term and long-term, are not ideal. Adjustable suture strabismus surgery has been available for decades as a tool to potentially enhance the surgical outcomes. Intellectually, it seems logical that having a second chance to improve the outcome of a strabismus procedure should increase the overall success rate and reduce the reoperation rate. Yet, adjustable suture surgery has not gained universal acceptanc...

Purpose: To compare the success rates and stabilities of postoperative alignment between adjustable and the non-adjustable surgeries in the treatment of sensory exotropia. Methods: A retrospective analysis was performed on all patients with sensory exotropia who had undergone unilateral lateral rectus recession and medial rectus resection (RR23:277-280 ⓒ 2009 by the Korean Ophthalmological Society.

Purpose: We reviewed the clinical features and the treatment results of sensory heterotropia with the purpose of finding etiologic causes, factors influencing the the direction of deviation, and characterisitics of sensory deviations subsequent to cataract. Methods: The charts of 134 patients diagnosed as sensory heterotropia in Chonbuk national university hospital between 1994 and 2001 were reviwed retrospectively. Visual acuity, the deviation in primary gaze, refractive error, the onset of vis...

Purpose: This study was carried out for the clinical analysis of deviation axis of sensory strabismus Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 100 patients who had been diagnosed with sensory strabismus and undergone surgery. Etiology, age at onset of vision loss, duration of vision loss, refraction in sound eye, angle of deviation according to sensory esotropia and exotropia were analyzed. Results: The most common etiology was corneal opacity which occurred in 17 patients (17...

Purpose: The type of horizontal strabismus from loss or impairment of vision is thought to depend on patient age at the time of vision loss. Association between the age at onset of vision loss and development of esotropia vs exotropia will be determined. Methods: Patients with a diagnosis of sensory strabismus and visual acuity of 20/40 or poorer were reviewed as well as patients with diagnoses consistent with the development of sensory strabismus. Parameters considered were age at onset of visi...

Sensory strabismus may be horizontal, vertical or torsional in nature, or any combination of these but by far the most common form is horizontal. What causes the eyes to become esotropic rather tha...
