This pilot study is designed specifically to determine the short-term effect of OBVAT on intermittent exotropia in terms of 4 key areas (Standardizing reported outcomes of surgery for inte...
The present study is being conducted to assess the natural history of intermittent exotropia and to establish the effectiveness of occlusion in its treatment. Study Objectives: -...
The main objectives of this randomized trial comparing overminus lens treatment to non-overminus (spectacles without overminus or spectacles with plano lenses) are to determine: -...
To evaluate preoperative risk factors for overcorrection and undercorrection following surgery for basic intermittent exotropia such as axial length of the globe, refractive error, age and...
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...
To investigate the long-term outcomes of intermittent exotropia surgery for children less than 4 years of age.
To evaluate the early postoperative changes of the angle of deviation after surgery for intermittent exotropia.
To compare adjustable sutures versus nonadjustable sutures for intermittent exotropia.
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.
Therapy whose basic objective is to restore the volume and composition of the body fluids to normal with respect to WATER-ELECTROLYTE BALANCE. Fluids may be administered intravenously, orally, by intermittent gavage, or by HYPODERMOCLYSIS.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
An intermittent and self-limiting headache disorder in individuals with CEREBROSPINAL FLUID SHUNTS emplaced for the treatment of HYDROCEPHALUS. The symptoms of headache, vomiting, and cranial neuropathies are associated with intermittent obstruction of the shunt.
Instruments that generate intermittent forces, uniformed or graduated, to facilitate the emptying of VEINS. These devices are used to reduce limb EDEMA and prevent venous THROMBOEMBOLISM, such as deep vein thrombosis in the legs.
