Nasal Transposition of the Split Lateral Rectus Muscle for Correction of Third-Nerve-Palsy-Associated Strabismus
Return to Session
Dr. Ankoor Shah, Boston Children's Hospital (Presenter)
Strabismus associated with third-nerve palsy may be lead to amblyopia, diplopia, lack of binocularity, and disfigurement. Surgery may improve these issues, but the surgical correction of complete and near-complete palsy is difficult. Over the last fifty years, many different techniques have been introduced, and each has its advantages. This talk will introduce the latest surgical innovation in the field, nasal transposition of the split lateral rectus muscle, and it will review the technique, outcomes data, and risks of the procedure. The viewer will leave with a new surgical tool for this difficult condition.
