Surgical Outcomes of Medial Rectus Recession in Esotropia with Cerebral Palsy

Purpose: To determine the outcome of a reduced amount of medial rectus (MR) muscle recession in esotropes with cerebral palsy (CP) and to compare the surgical response with that of normal controls. Design: Retrospective cohort study. Participants: Thirty esotropes with CP and 60 age-matched esotropes without CP who underwent a unilateral or bilateral MR muscle recession. Methods: The surgical amount of MR muscle recession was reduced by 1 mm per muscle in patients with CP. Main Outcome Measures: Success rates, surgical response, cumulative probabilities of success, and factors affecting surgical (Read more...)
