To compare botulinum neurotoxin (BNT) injections to surgery as first-line therapy in large-angle essential infantile esotropia (IE). Children between the ages 6 months and 6 years with IE of ≥40 prism dioptres (PD) were randomised to either a maximum of three BNT injections or surgical intervention of bimedial rectus muscle recession for angles ≤60 PD and augmented with BNT injection in angles >60 PD. Time taken for each procedure was documented. Orthophoria or misalignment of ≤10 PD was… Expand

Cost comparison between botulinum neurotoxin and surgery in the treatment of infantile esotropia in a tertiary public hospital
TLDR
BNT has a cost–benefit in IE and is a viable option in the primary treatment of IE in resource constrained regions and clinical outcomes and economic benefit in smaller angle of esotropia and younger patients are comparable to surgery. Expand
Essential Infantile Esotropia: A Course of Treatment From Our Experience
TLDR
The data suggest that a single bilateral BT injection by age 2 years should be considered as the first-line treatment of EIE without vertical component; whereas, traditional surgery should be thought of for all other cases and in subjects unresponsive to primary single BT injection. Expand

Critical age of botulinum toxin treatment in essential infantile esotropia.
TLDR
Botulinum toxin can be effective in essential infantile esotropia when children are treated by age 7 months, and in some patients with hyperopic refraction, plus lens corrections were prescribed during follow-up to stabilize the alignment. Expand
Comparison of botulinum toxin with surgery as primary treatment for infantile esotropia.
TLDR
In this large, nonrandomized prospective cohort, surgery was more successful than botulinum toxin in the treatment of large-angle esotropia and may be an alternative to surgery in children with small- to moderate-angle infantile esotropa. Expand

TLDR
It appears reasonable to suggest that any comparison of the 2 methods of alignment would probably be moremeaningful if it included the results of subsequent sensory testing as well as the motor tests that were used as criteria of success. Expand

Long-term results of botulinum toxin-augmented medial rectus recessions for large-angle infantile esotropia.
TLDR
Botulinum toxin-augmented medial rectus recession is an effective treatment for large-angle infantile esotropia, with stable results over time. Expand
Botulinum toxin injection without electromyographic assistance.
TLDR
If anesthetic risks are higher and the results are similar when using electromyographic control is necessary, not using it in congenital esotropia when injecting botulinum toxin in children is advocated. Expand
The Use of Botulinum Toxin to Treat Infantile Esotropia: A Systematic Review With Meta-Analysis.
TLDR
Botulinum toxin injection into medial recti muscles reveals to be a safe procedure and a valuable alternative to strabismus surgery in congenital esotropia, especially in moderate deviations. Expand
Long-term Surgical Outcomes for Large-angle Infantile Esotropia.
TLDR
Patients treated with botulinum toxin-augmented surgery were more likely to have a successful outcome compared to patients treated with bilateral medial rectus muscle recessions, andBotulinum toxins-augement surgery was associated with a higher success rate at final follow-up. Expand
Long-term results of bimedial rectus recessions in infantile esotropia.
BACKGROUND Congenital esotropia has a deviation of 50 or more prism diopters (delta). Generally, surgical alignment of the eyes is the accepted treatment but surgical techniques differ. METHODS AExpand
A randomized comparison of surgical procedures for infantile esotropia.
TLDR
Of the patients undergoing recession of the medial recti muscles 10.5 mm from the corneoscleral limbus, 33 of 39 (84%) achieved a final ocular alignment within 10 prism diopters of straight with one operation, compared to 26 of 41 (63%) of the Patients undergoing a graded recession from the insertion.
