Intermittent exotropia is the most common type of exotropia in children. Treatment options are surgical and non surgical. Nonsurgical management include Correction of refractive errors, Ac...
In childhood strabismus, exotropia is most frequently seen with intermittent exotropia and convergence failure in the first decade of life. This situation adversely affects children's psyc...
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 compare the surgical outcomes of unilateral lateral rectus recession-medial rectus resection (RR) according to forced duction test (FDT) results with those of conventional RR in intermittent exotro...
Intermittent exotropia requires surgical resolution under some clinical circumstances. The main techniques are bilateral lateral rectus recession and unilateral recess/resection. Although bilateral re...
To evaluate long-term outcomes of homogenous bilateral rectus recession in patients with the same preoperative angle of deviation in intermittent exotropia and investigate factors associated with surg...
To compare long-term outcomes after bilateral lateral rectus recession (BLRc) or unilateral recess-resect (R&R) for primary treatment of childhood intermittent exotropia (IXT).
To evaluate postoperative changes of the intermittent exotropia type as classified by 1-hour monocular occlusion test.
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.
