PORTO, Laís Sousa; GARCIA, Isabel  and  SOUZA, Guilherme Macedo. Incomitant strabismus correction through combined resection and recession of the same rectus muscle. Rev. bras.oftalmol. [online]. 2019, vol.78, n.1, pp.56-58. ISSN 1982-8551.

The present study reports a case of a patient, 38-year-old man, with incomitant strabismus and consequent diplopia, submitted to debilitating surgery with recession and strengthening resection of the right inferior rectus muscle. This surgical technique aims to correct the deviation in its greater incomitence position, without impairing the ocular alignment in the primary position of the eye (PPO). The satisfactory result, in agreement with data of current literature, contributes to make this technique an option in the treatment of challenging incomitant strabismus.
