The use of "hang-back" suspensions has been shown to be an effective means of weakening rectus muscles. The exact position where the muscle reattaches to the globe has, however, been questioned. We performed eight large hang-back recessions on the rectus muscles of cynomolgus monkeys. Eight weeks postoperatively the attachment sites were determined by reexploration. Six of the recessions were within 0.5 mm of the intended site. The muscles were found an average of 0.4 mm anterior to the… CONTINUE READING
