Abstract

Purpose: To describe surgical management and outcomes for large-angle esotropia of ≥50 Δ secondary to Graves ophthalmopathy using combined initial nonadjustable medial rectus recessions and lateral rectus resections. Methods: The medical records of consecutive patients undergoing strabismus surgery for large-angle esotropia secondary to Graves ophthalmopathy from 1995 to 2012 by a single surgeon at each of two institutions was performed. Patient characteristics, surgical technique, and pre- and postoperative measurements of ocular alignment were analyzed. A modified Gorman diplopia scale was used to assess outcome. Results: Of 38 patients, 36 had bilateral nonadjustable medial rectus recessions and lateral rectus resections as initial treatment for esotropia, and 6 patients underwent simultaneous vertical muscle surgery. Mean preoperative horizontal deviation was 60 Δ and mean preoperative vertical deviation was 10 Δ . Of the 38 patients, 19 (50%) reached the primary outcome, including 5 of 6 (85%) who had no preoperative vertical strabismus. The indications for reoperation were vertical strabismus in 13 of 21 patients (62%), residual esotropia in 7 of 21 (33%), and consecutive exotropia in 1 of 21 (5%). With a median follow-up of 13.2 months after first surgery, 32 of 38 patients (84%) reached the secondary outcome. Conclusions: Combining nonadjustable medial rectus recessions with lateral rectus resections can be a beneficial primary treatment for large-angle esotropia in patients with Graves ophthalmopathy, especially in those patients with small or no associated vertical strabismus.(Figure presented.)
