The traditional approach for periosteal fixation of the lateral rectus muscle involves securing the muscle using nonabsorbable sutures by exposing the orbital periosteum 5 mm to the inside of the orbital margin. We present a simplified approach that exposes the orbital periosteum through a skin incision, providing more room and avoiding extraconal fat manipulation.

Lateral rectus disinsertion and reattachment to the lateral orbital wall has been previously described as a successful technique for satisfactory ocular alignment in patients with oculomotor cranial n...
The latest research suggests that the abducens nerve may be divided into sub-branches that reach functionally distinct zones of the lateral rectus muscle. The goal of the study was to examine this mus...
To describe a novel surgical technique for the treatment of monocular elevation deficit and report its short-term outcomes.
Multiple cranial nerve palsies often lead to complex clinical presentations. We report 2 cases in which a combination of multiple palsies resulted in paralytic esotropia with the medial rectus being t...

Which technique is best for partial hip replacement?
A form of ocular misalignment where the visual axes diverge inappropriately. For example, medial rectus muscle weakness may produce this condition as the affected eye will deviate laterally upon attempted forward gaze. An exotropia occurs due to the relatively unopposed force exerted on the eye by the lateral rectus muscle, which pulls the eye in an outward direction.
The muscles that move the eye. Included in this group are the medial rectus, lateral rectus, superior rectus, inferior rectus, inferior oblique, superior oblique, musculus orbitalis, and levator palpebrae superioris.
Diseases of the sixth cranial (abducens) nerve or its nucleus in the pons. The nerve may be injured along its course in the pons, intracranially as it travels along the base of the brain, in the cavernous sinus, or at the level of superior orbital fissure or orbit. Dysfunction of the nerve causes lateral rectus muscle weakness, resulting in horizontal diplopia that is maximal when the affected eye is abducted and ESOTROPIA. Common conditions associated with nerve injury include INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; ISCHEMIA; and INFRATENTORIAL NEOPLASMS.
A form of ocular misalignment characterized by an excessive convergence of the visual axes, resulting in a "cross-eye" appearance. An example of this condition occurs when paralysis of the lateral rectus muscle causes an abnormal inward deviation of one eye on attempted gaze.
Inflammation of the extraocular muscle of the eye. It is characterized by swelling which can lead to ischemia, fibrosis, or ORBITAL PSEUDOTUMOR.
