Mechanical properties and functional importance of pulley bands or ‘faisseaux tendineux’

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Connective tissue bands connect the horizontal rectus muscles at the level of the posterior pole to the orbital wall. These bands, referred to as pulley bands or faisseaux tendineux, purportedly act like springs to keep the rectus muscle bellies in place during eye movement out of the plane of the muscle. We examined the mechanical properties… (More)
