          Abstract

          In 138 cases of paralytic exotropia due to oculomotor palsy, transposition of the superior oblique muscle and resection of the medial rectus muscle were carried out. Surgery was performed with or without recession of the lateral rectus muscle. The long-term prognosis for 4 years or more was observed in 35 cases. We found that the same results could be obtained by selecting transposition of the superior oblique muscle in cases of complete palsy and resection of the medical rectus muscle in cases of incomplete palsy. There was no benefit in combining resection of the medial rectus muscle when performing the transposition of the superior oblique muscle. Regardless of which method was used, a combination with recession of the lateral rectus muscle greatly improved the effectiveness of the procedure.
