Lateral rectus muscle
disinsertion and reattachment to the lateral orbital wall in exotropic Duane
syndrome: a case report
The surgical correction of
anomalous movement such as upshoot in Duane syndrome is challenging. Lateral
rectus muscle disinsertion and reattachment to the lateral orbital wall is a
new approach used to minimize or eliminate the effects of co-contraction
including globe retraction, palpebral fissure narrowing and anomalous vertical
We report a case of a 7-year-old
boy who underwent this procedure for severe upshoot, globe retraction and
exotropia in the left eye due to Duane syndrome. The patient achieved
satisfactory ocular alignment following surgery. Upshoot and globe retraction
were substantially improved.
Lateral rectus muscle disinsertion
and reattachment to the lateral orbital wall is a safe and effective procedure
for weakening of the anomalous lateral rectus muscle in Exotropic Duane
