When performing a recession of the inferior oblique muscle, a suture is typically placed in the distal muscle after disinsertion. A number of instruments have been used to stabilize the muscle for this postdisinsertion suture placement, but each of these has been observed to create some degree of devitalization, or crush effect, in the distal muscle. Here, a modified clamp is described that was created to overcome this limitation. The clamp (model no. SP7-60458; Storz Ophthalmics, St. Louis, MO… Expand

TLDR
Its use is still limited due to the lack of methods for controlling the amount of anterior transposition for the treatment of hyperfunction of the inferior oblique muscle, especially of small degrees. Expand
Uses of the Inferior Oblique Muscle in Strabismus Surgery
TLDR
Inferior oblique muscle anatomy, different weakening procedures, and recent surgical techniques that take advantage of the muscle′s unique anatomy for the treatment of additional indications such as excyclotorsion and hypertropia in primary gaze are reviewed. Expand

TLDR
Subsequent reoperation for recurrent overaction of the inferior obliques was needed in only one case, and substantial reduction in dissociated vertical deviation (DVD), when present, and almost complete absence of subsequent need for surgery for DVD among the 61 children of this series were new findings.
