PURPOSE The paths of the rectus extraocular muscles (EOMs) are constrained by pulleys, connective tissue sleeves mechanically coupled to the orbital walls. This study sought to investigate, using high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the location and stability of EOM pulleys in normal subjects and those with strabismus. METHODS Multiple contiguous coronal MRI scans spanning the anterior-to-posterior extent of the orbit during primary gaze, upgaze, downgaze, adduction, and… CONTINUE READING
