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...
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...
Non-surgical treatment (ie. patching or fusion exercises) of intermittent exotropia may help in increasing control of strabismus
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...
We compare the surgical outcomes of intermittent exotropia of the basic, pseudo-divergence excess (pseudo-DE) and true divergence excess (true DE) types. A study was performed with 342 patients who ha...
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 compare postoperative drift after bilateral lateral rectus recession (BLR) and after unilateral recession combined with medial rectus resection (R&R) in children with primary moderate-angle intermi...
To describe the course of intermittent exotropia (IXT) in children followed without treatment for three years DESIGN: Observation arm from randomized trial of short-term occlusion vs. observation PART...
To evaluate the 2-year changes in myopic maculopathy and its associations in highly myopic eyes.
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.
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.
An autosomal recessive inherited disorder with multiple forms of phenotypic expression, caused by a defect in the oxidative decarboxylation of branched-chain amino acids (AMINO ACIDS, BRANCHED-CHAIN). These metabolites accumulate in body fluids and render a "maple syrup" odor. The disease is divided into classic, intermediate, intermittent, and thiamine responsive subtypes. The classic form presents in the first week of life with ketoacidosis, hypoglycemia, emesis, neonatal seizures, and hypertonia. The intermediate and intermittent forms present in childhood or later with acute episodes of ataxia and vomiting. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p936)
Techniques for effecting the transition of the respiratory-failure patient from mechanical ventilation to spontaneous ventilation, while meeting the criteria that tidal volume be above a given threshold (greater than 5 ml/kg), respiratory frequency be below a given count (less than 30 breaths/min), and oxygen partial pressure be above a given threshold (PaO2 greater than 50mm Hg). Weaning studies focus on finding methods to monitor and predict the outcome of mechanical ventilator weaning as well as finding ventilatory support techniques which will facilitate successful weaning. Present methods include intermittent mandatory ventilation, intermittent positive pressure ventilation, and mandatory minute volume ventilation.
