INTRODUCTION Surgical treatment of third nerve palsy, sensory exotropia and strabismus secondary to anomalous innervation of the rectus muscles, frequently require large rectus muscle recessions in an attempt to maintain alignment in the primary position and reduce the effects of misinnervation. The aim of this study was to describe and evaluate the results(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the longer term results of a randomized, clinical trial comparing the 350-mm2 and the 500-mm2 Baerveldt glaucoma implants. DESIGN Extended follow-up on a randomized, controlled trial. PARTICIPANTS Between March 1991 and April 1993, 107 patients with uncontrolled intraocular pressure (IOP) due to non-neovascular glaucoma associated(More)
PURPOSE Preoperative prism adaptation and the maximum motor fusion test reduce the risk of postoperative undercorrection, overcorrection, and bifocal requirements in acquired esotropia. The purpose of our study is to determine the efficacy of the maximum motor fusion test followed by a short prism adaptation test in patients with acquired esotropia(More)
PURPOSE Lateral posterior fixation sutures increase the effect of full rectus extraocular muscle transpositions. Partial rectus muscle transposition may be indicated to minimize the risk of anterior ischemia when multiple rectus muscles require surgery to achieve ocular alignment. PURPOSE To report a modification of full vertical rectus muscle(More)
INTRODUCTION Lateral rectus resections have been previously advocated as surgical options to treat patients with divergence palsy who do not respond well to prisms. This study was undertaken to review the results and long-term follow-up of patients with divergence palsy who underwent lateral rectus resections at our institution. METHODS Retrospective(More)
BACKGROUND Correction of severe cocontraction and pseudo-ptosis present unique surgical challenges in patients with Duane syndrome. METHODS We report four Duane syndrome patients with esotropia in primary position, poor abduction, and severe cocontraction causing limitation to adduction, globe retraction, and pseudo-ptosis. All were treated with partial(More)
BACKGROUND Augmented transposition of the superior and inferior rectus muscles to the lateral rectus muscle is effective surgical treatment for esotropia in unilateral Duane syndrome. Medial rectus muscle recession in bilateral Duane syndrome may increase the risk of consecutive exotropia and cause limitation to adduction postoperatively. Vertical rectus(More)
