Purpose: To determine the surgical outcomes of the plication technique in comparison with the resection method on exotropic patients.
Methods: In this randomized clinical trial, a total of 52 exotropic patients (female, 51.9%) who are candidate for medial rectus strengthening will be randomly classified into plication (n=24) and resection (n=28) groups. The comprehensive visual and ocular examinations will be performed on all study subjects and they will be followed- up for three months postoperatively. Plication technique is the same as resection up to muscle suturing, in the next step, the sutures are passed through 2 scleral bites at 1 mm anterior to the muscle insertion, then the muscle was folded toward inside or outside by pulling and joining the sutures.

|Experimental: Undergoing plication strabismus surgery||
Procedure: Plication strabismus surgery
The technique was the same as resection up to muscle suturing, in the next step, the sutures were passed through 2 scleral bites at 1 mm anterior to the muscle insertion, then the muscle was folded toward inside or outside by pulling and joining the sutures. At the end, conjunctiva was repaired by vicryl 8/0.
|Active Comparator: Undergoing resection strabismus surgery||
Procedure: Resection strabismus surgery
resection strabismus surgery
- Postoperative ocular deviation [ Time Frame: three months ]Postoperative ocular deviation will be measured at a distance of 6 meters three months after the surgery.
