Three or four horizontal rectus muscle surgery versus staged surgery for large angle congenital esotropia in children.

Magritha Du Bruyn, Anthony Zaborowski

Abstract


A randomised comparative interventional study to determine the outcome of surgery for large angle congenital esotropia in children. A single three or four horizontal muscle strabismus correction procedure based on standard of care surgical dosing tables will be compared with a two-stage strabismus procedure. The two-stage procedure will consist of bilateral maximal medial rectus recessions followed by appropriate bilateral lateral rectus resections 6 to 12 weeks later. The surgical outcomes between the two groups will be compared 6 weeks after the final surgery.
