The lateralis splitting technique has been an interesting option for treating large-angle exotropia due to complete 3rd nerve paralysis since its inception in the early 1990s. The purpose of this study is to report on our experience regarding the effectiveness and complications of this method.

To describe a novel surgical technique for the treatment of monocular elevation deficit and report its short-term outcomes.
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 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 orbi...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of bilateral lateral rectus muscle recession versus unilateral lateral rectus recession with medial rectus resection procedures f...
Purpose: To determine the surgical outcomes of the plication technique in comparison with the resection method on exotropic patients. Methods: In this randomized clinical trial, a total o...
- Background and study aims : The investigators conducted this study to compare the movement of extraocular muscle after two types of recession surgery with non-invasive tool ca...
We include in our study 200 pregnant women, primigravidas, at term who underwent elective lower segment Cesarean section for the first time among the age group of 20 ̶ 35 years. The pati...
The aim of this study is to assess the effect of rectus muscle re-approximation by 3 interrupted simple sutures versus tighting it by 3 vertical mattress sutures during cesarean delivery o...
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.
This area is bounded medially by the mammillothalamic tract and the anterior column of fornix. The medial edge of the internal capsule and the subthalamic region form its lateral boundary. It contains the lateral hypothalamic nucleus, tuberomammillary nucleus, lateral tuberal nuclei, and fibers of the MEDIAL FOREBRAIN BUNDLE. (Parent, Carpenter's Human Neuroanatomy, 9th ed, p710)
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.
Diseases of the oculomotor nerve or nucleus that result in weakness or paralysis of the superior rectus, inferior rectus, medial rectus, inferior oblique, or levator palpebrae muscles, or impaired parasympathetic innervation to the pupil. With a complete oculomotor palsy, the eyelid will be paralyzed, the eye will be in an abducted and inferior position, and the pupil will be markedly dilated. Commonly associated conditions include neoplasms, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA, ischemia (especially in association with DIABETES MELLITUS), and aneurysmal compression.
