Brief Summary:
This study was conducted to evaluate results of slanted recession of the lateral rectus muscle for intermittent exotropia with convergence weakness

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Intermittent Exotropia Procedure: Slanted recession of the lateral rectus muscle Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This prospective study included 31 patients who underwent slanted lateral rectus muscle recession for intermittent exotropia with convergence weakness. Measurements of preoperative and postoperative deviation angle, stereopsis was performed.

Official Title: Early Results of Slanted Recession of the Lateral Rectus Muscle for Intermittent Exotropia With Convergence Weakness; A Prospective Study
Study Start Date : June 2010
Actual Primary Completion Date : June 2012
Actual Study Completion Date : April 2014

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Lateral Rectus Muscle Slanted Recession
Slanted recession of the lateral rectus muscle for the intermittent exotropia with convergence weakness
Procedure: Slanted recession of the lateral rectus muscle
All patients who had intermittent exotropia with convergence weakness was enrolled to the slanted lateral rectus muscle recession group.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes from baseline of exodeviations angle after slanted recession surgery at 6 months. [ Time Frame: preop, 6months postop ]
    Measurement of deviation angle after slanted recession surgery was performed.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes from baseline of near-distance difference after slanted recession surgery at 6 months [ Time Frame: preop, 6 months postop ]
    Measurement of stereopsis after slanted recession was performed.
