Measurement of ocular torsion variation following superior oblique tenectomy

Abstract: Purposes: To objectively evaluate the torsional effect of the superior oblique muscle-weakening surgery using the tenectomy technique proposed by Souza-Dias. Methods: The present prospective study included 10 patients (20 eyes) with horizontal strabismus, bilateral superior oblique overaction and A-pattern of 15 to 30 prism diopters who underwent superior oblique tenectomy. Objective assessment of ocular torsion was performed by retinography immediately before and one month after surgery. The amount of ocular … Show more

“…decreases the intorsion noticed due to superior oblique overaction. 15 Thus, we preferred a complete tenectomy rather than posterior tenectomy, which would correct both the A pattern and associated torsion (Figure 3). This worked to our advantage since apart from correcting the A pattern exotropia and intorsion as anticipated, it also corrected the right face turn.…”
