Single or combined oblique muscle surgery in acquired and congenital superior oblique palsy

Published inAnnals of the New York Academy of Sciences, vol. 1039, p. 583-587
Publication date2005
Abstract

Oblique muscle surgery with weakening of the inferior oblique muscle alone or in combination with a tuck of the superior oblique tendon reduces in a dose-dependent relationship the vertical deviation in patients with an acquired or congenital superior oblique palsy. Reduction of cyclotropia and the V-sign is less dose dependent.
