Mean preoperative esodeviation was 27 (18-35)[DELTA] at distance and 21 (12-33)[DELTA] at near fixation.
Strabismus N = 17 Horizontal deviation 8 (47.1%) Exodeviation 5 (29.4%) Esodeviation 3 (17.6%) Vertical deviation 5 (29.4%) Combined (horizontal + vertical) 3 (17.6%) Cyclodeviation 1 (5.9%) TABLE 3: Thyroid autoantibodies in three groups.
The angle of esodeviation was measured by alternate cover test, and the mean deviation of two consecutive measurements was used.
I investigated the relationship between the K-CBCL score and the amount of esodeviation in RAE children.
Regarding the relationship between the angle of esodeviation and the K-CBCL score, although the frequency of withdrawn behavior did not differ between groups, the far angle of esodeviation showed a moderate correlation with withdrawn behaviors (Table 2).
The angle of esodeviation correlated with withdrawn behaviors on the CBCL, but the near angle was not associated with the score on any subsection of the CBCL.
Tychsen further argues that this bias is potentially strabismogenic but binocular fusion prevents esodeviations becoming manifest.
This wedge depends on vergence angle and is maximised by high-angle esodeviations, implying that esotropia may be an 'adaptive' developmental response.
However, Boothe et al (28) have proposed that the accessory lateral rectus might render monkeys resistant to esodeviations; indeed, naturally strabismic monkeys have a smaller or absent accessory lateral rectus.
V-pattern strabismus is more common in both esodeviations and exodeviations the reported range is from 59% to 100% (15) Affected patients typically demonstrate moderate to severe inferior oblique overaction and mild to moderate superior oblique underaction.
