Likewise, we observed that there was an increased demand for surgeries involving oblique muscles, vertical rectus muscles and displacement paralitixos. The definitions used in the study followed proposals made by several authors.

This may either reflect a difficulty paraluticos gaining quick access to healthcare services, or a lack of qualified professionals and resources to perform an earlier surgery; further research is needed for a better understanding of this issue. It has been found that children with strabismus are viewed negatively, and that surgery could lead to psychosocial benefits, even when there is no hope of improving visual function.

Long-term observations on unoperated intermittent exotropia. National Eye Institute; An association with at least one more type of deviation was seen in Introduction Treatment for strabismus may be either clinical, optical, or involving an association of techniques, and its purpose is to preserve and ensure adequate visual development, recover binocular vision, and establish ocular parallelism. New studies will be necessary in order to clarify this finding.

Patients were grouped into age brackets according to their ages at the time of surgery, and following the same division employed in the study of Curtis et al. Final report of the early vs. This study expects to contribute to the planning of health measures that may effectively improve the assistance provided to the population. The same number of patients presented with intermittent and sensorial XT Results surgeries were performed in the period under study.


The involvement of oblique and vertical rectus muscles, the displacement of the rectus muscle, and the number of re-surgeries were also considered. The researched variables included sex, age at the time of surgery, type of surgery and classification of strabismus.

Their subtypes are presented in Table 1. Results of early alignment of congenital esotropia. Discussion It is difficult to compare the findings of the present study to other research, due to the methodological variability across the studies, to paraliticoe fact that few studies investigated surgical strabismus alone, 13, 14and to the lack of standardization in the classification of strabismus.

The prevalence of strabismus and amblyopia in Japanese elementary school children. Every surgical procedure performed in that period was evaluated and recorded as a case for the study. Although infantile ET is classically indicated as the most common type of esotropia among children, in recent studies this high prevalence has not been found.

The type of surgery was determined estrwbismos the number of muscles operated on intervention in up to two muscles, or intervention in more than two muscles.

These surgeries require a more elaborated planning and are technically more difficult. This has also contributed to the fact that over half the surgeries needed interventions in more than two extraocular muscles. Long-term motor and sensory outcomes after early surgery for infantile esotropia.

padaliticos Most cases were associated with other types of deviation, and needed more complex surgeries, involving more than two muscles. This number is lower than the one seen in the literaturewhich might be due to good results obtained by the first surgery, to a difficulty faced by patients in following up on their treatments due to socioeconomic issues, or to lower standards regarding esthetic results among the population under study An association between different types of deviation was found in Additionally, most cases of accommodative ET may be corrected with plus lenses 11, 19 and do not need surgery, therefore not being widely represented among the subjects of this study 11,19 Regarding XT subtypes, we found trends similar to those found in other studies.

A descriptive statistical paralitticos was conducted through the use of frequency distribution tables for each variable studied. Strabismus was classified into three main types esotropia, exotropia, and pure vertical deviationand their subtypes.
